Easter Cross 
As part of the celebration of Easter, children are invited to bring a flower or greenery on April 5 to decorate a cross on the brick patio between the Luther and Knox buildings. Children in two-year-old classes are asked to put their flowers or greenery on the cross before going to the classroom. All other children, ages three through fifth grade, will decorate the cross with their classes during the Church School hour.

Families with Children: Come Enjoy “Stories of Jesus” in The Way Station
The Way Statiohttp://www.whitememorial.org/uploads/WayStationLogo.jpgn reopens in April, for more family-friendly faith formation. This train-themed spirituality center, located in S104, is a peaceful place to learn Bible stories and prayer practices. 

Drop by any time after Easter for self-guided time, or join us on Wednesday afternoons from 4:30 until 6:30, when Conductors will offer tasty treats for visitors:
April 8: Hot Cross Buns
April 15: Rooster Bread
April 22: Earth Bread

The Way Station is best enjoyed by caregiver/child pairs, in groups of up to 8 people at a time. Reserve Wednesday time slots by signing up on a clipboard outside the door, or come and ask the Conductor if the train can take more passengers.

All Aboard! Don’t miss the “Stories of Jesus” in The Way Station!

WMPC is a Safe Sanctuary Community
 
http://www.whitememorial.org/uploads/IMG_2941.jpg We are called to create a community of faith where children, youth and adults grow safe and strong. God calls us to make our church community a safe place, protecting children and youth from sexual abuse. In response to this challenge, WMPC has developed a Safe Sanctuary protection policy.
