Additional Worship Opportunities
World Communion Afternoon Service
On Sunday, October 6 at 3:00, join Christians around the globe in receiving holy communion. All are invited and we especially encourage those for whom crowds and traffic make Sunday morning services difficult. Oberlin Road provides an automatic door opener and no steps into the sanctuary. This will be a 30 minute service followed by refreshments and fellowship. If help is needed with transportation, please contact Lindsay Jordan.
Blessing of the Animals
We join in a worship service that celebrates the goodness of all God's creatures. This service will take place on Sunday afternoon, October 6, at 5:00 p.m on the Carol Copeland Courtyard.
On Sunday, November 3 at 5:00 p.m., we will gather together as a community to celebrate life even as we remember those who have died and support those who are grieving. Our Evensong service will feature music by choirs, the Youth String Ensemble, and other instrumentalists as an integral part of our worship. All are welcome.
The service booklet will memorialize members of our congregation as well as all known relatives of church members who have died in the past twelve months. To have a relative or friend memorialized in the Evensong service booklet, please contact Jody Grayson by October 23.
A reception will be held in the Jane Bell Gathering Space immediately following the service.
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. For more information, contact Nolan Huizenga, Associate Pastor for Covenant Life.
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
We worship together with all the members of the Oberlin Road church community as we prepare our hearts and minds for the upcoming season of Lent.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Old Time Hymn Sing
The Older Adult Committee leads an Old Time Hymn Sing service on Sunday afternoon, the first Sunday in May, at 3:00. We worship God and sing our favorite old hymns. Refreshments and fellowship follow.
