Grow Your Family’s Faith in a Creative Setting: The Way Station

Visit White Memorial’s Way Station – a train-themed activity center located in S104 that is designed to guide parents and children in ways to pray and grow closer to God.

The 2014-15 Way Station will open its doors for four Wednesdays in September and April, from 4:30 until 6:30p.m. September’s Way Station features a prayerful journey through the stories of Moses. Conductors will be on hand to assist travelers. 

Space is limited so stop by S104 to sign up for your journey – there’s a clipboard outside the door. You may also check with the Conductor on any open Wednesday, to see if the train can take more passengers. Children should be accompanied by an adult caregiver

WMPC is a Safe Sanctuary Community
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.
