Additional Worship Opportunities

Service of Wholeness and Healing
Services of Wholeness and Healing are sponsored by the WMPC Prayer Ministry, and sometimes have been created in partnership with other ministries (Youth, Stephen Ministry, Music and Worship, etc.). We offer these services a few times a year, often during the seasons of Advent, midwinter, and Lent. Everyone is welcome.
Resting Restoring Reconciling

Contemplative worship offers a chance to rest in God’s presence, restore one’s sense of wellbeing and reconcile relationships. If such an experience of worship might reinvigorate you, gather with others for Light for Our Way: Contemplative Worship for Wholeness & Healing. This service will be held on Sunday, September 13, at 6:00 p.m. in the chapel. Come and let 30 minutes of scripture, silence, prayer, music and candlelight offer light for your way. Contact Lisa Hebacker with questions.

World Communion Afternoon Service
On the first Sunday in October we join with Christian communities around the world and celebrate our unity in Christ. We offer a communion service open to all, and on that Sunday afternoon, we particularly welcome older adults and anyone who may not be able to attend worship on Sunday mornings.

Blessing of the Animals
We join in a worship service that celebrates the goodness of all God's creatures. This service takes place on a Sunday afternoon in October. This service is sponsored by Companion Animal Ministry.

On the first Sunday of November we gather together as a community to celebrate life even as we remember those who have died and support those who are grieving. Any member may request that a friend or family member be memorialized. Following the service, there will be a reception in Jane Bell Gathering Space.

Join us for worship during the season of Advent on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 in the Sanctuary or Thursdays at 12:10 in the Sanctuary.

Oberlin Road Ash Wednesday 
Join with our Oberlin Road Church neighbors as we gather on Ash Wednesday for worship and communion.

During the 40 days of Lent we worship together on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 and Thursdays at 12:10. Find our complete Lenten worship calendar here.

Holy Week
Each day of Holy Week we share in Christ's journey to the cross by worshipping together at 12:10 and 6:30 p.m.
Maundy Thursday
During the Thursday of Holy Week, we worship by sharing the sacrament of communion together. We hear how Christ first instituted this holy meal and then we, as the body of Christ, share this meal with each other.

Good Friday
On Friday of Holy Week we worship by listening and feeling the pain and suffering Christ experienced on the cross. In moments of silence, prayer, and scripture we prepare our hearts for Christ's death. We wait with expectation for Christ's glorious resurrection on Easter morning. Sing
Join us as we sing some old favorites at a Hymn Sing service. Times and dates for the Hymn Sing service will be announced and are usually held in May. Guests are welcome. Refreshments and fellowship follow. Sponsored by the Older Adult Committee.
