Join us in the sanctuary for this annual tradition at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 4. We will hear the Christmas story shared through the singing of carols led by the youth choir and band, the reading of scripture by high school seniors, the hanging of ornaments by children and bringing gift forth of food and toys. Children will find themselves engaged in this sharing of Christ’s birth. The nursery will be open for children three years old and younger with reservations. For more information, contact Chip Pope.

Oberlin Road Ash Wednesday 
Join with our Oberlin Road Church neighbors as we gather on Ash Wednesday for worship and communion in the White Memorial sanctuary.

Lent

During the 40 days of Lent we worship together on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 and Thursdays at 12:10.

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 remembering Jesus’ sacrifice of life by way of crucifixion and giving thanks to God for Jesus’ passion.

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.

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.

Blessing of the Animals
We join in a worship service that celebrates the goodness of all God's creatures. This usually held early in October and is sponsored by Companion Animal Ministry.

Evensong
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.
