2015 Children’s Church School Offering Project

Our children's Church School offering has fed 1,801 hungry people at $.25 a meal through Stop Hunger Now! 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.
