  2. News : Christmas Shoebox Gifts 2017

    Each year, we invite you to fill a shoebox with gifts for the children in our state’s poorest counties affected by natural disasters like Hurricane Matthew. WPC’s shoeboxes are distributed via UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief), which sends relief teams all over the world to help victims of natural disasters.

    Print the shoebox label and a list of gift ideas. Copies are also available in the Mission Center lobby.

    The gifts will be collected on Sunday, November 26, during the Christ the King parade at both the 8:30 and 11am services. If you have any questions, contact Heather Ferguson.

  4. Mission Trip Blog : June 20: Day 2

    Hello WPC I am Ben Chesser, one of the youth on the Atlanta mission trip. Today all of the youth were together the whole time. We got up at 7 and were on the road at 7:30. We arrived at a farm and immediately got to work. My group helped spread gravel into holes at their parking lot, and then helped pull weeds. That lasted for 4 hours. Then we left to go to Medshare, which is an organization that sends medical supplies to people who need it. That was a lot of fun. Overall our second day was also a great success.

  5. Mission Trip Blog : June 19: Day 1

    Hello WPC I am Shelby Page one of the Youth on the Atlanta mission trip. Today we split the group in half to go to our work cites. Half of the group went to a homeless agency where we fed women and children. We also got to interact with the people and learn about them. The other half went to a nursing home where they played games. They also hung out with the elderly living there. We then altogether went to the MLK center and Ebenezer church. Overall our first day was a success.
