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. Our next Service of Wholeness and Healing will be Sunday, February 8, 5:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Everyone is welcome.
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.
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 p.m. 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. 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. Our 2014 Evensong worship service will be held at 5:00 p.m. on November 2 in the Sanctuary. 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.
