Additional Worship Opportunities
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.
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.
On Sunday, November 4th 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 24.
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 four weeks of Advent on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 in the Sanctuary or Thursdays at 12:10 in the Sanctuary. During these four weeks we will look at the idea of waiting and what it means as people of God to wait with hope, peace, joy, and love.
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.
