The annual Stewardship Campaign is in full swing. We’re called to share God’s gifts with the church and the world by pledging a portion of God’s treasures to WPC. Your gifts allow us to follow our mission and continue being a beacon of light in our community. Please prayerfully consider how much God’s calling you to contribute for 2022.
Please join us in bringing joy to pre-school students at the Early Childhood Center in the North Ward of Newark and the youth at Greater Abyssinian Church in Newark. Due to the global pandemic, we will drop off gifts but will not be able to help distribute them to the children.
What you can do:
Help us buy gifts for 150 students! (115 toys and 35 gift cards)
Please go to one of the sites and buy gifts for the kids. You can select from the registry or pick out something else. (If you buy a gift not on the registry, or you would like to shop in person and drop gifts at church, please email Susan Johnson at email@example.com so we can keep track). We suggest you buy one or two main gifts totaling approximately$25 for each child.You are welcome to buy for as many kids as you want.
The registries are set up to ship the gifts directly to the church. If you pick up the gifts or have them sent to you, please drop them at the church by December 5th. Please NO gift wrapped presents! Please NO Stuffed animals this year because of Covid 19 precautions.
We will assemble the gift bags at the church and will deliver them to the Newark Preschool and Greater Abyssinian.
Cash/check donations are always accepted if you do not want to shop. Please mark your donation for the Christmas Giving Program and send it to the church or go online to https://wyomingpresbyterian.org and donate under Special Offering and make a note it is for Christmas gifts.

In July a team of 12 youth and adults road-tripped to Eastern Kentucky to partner with the Christian Appalachian Project (CAP). For the fourth year in a row, we spent the first week of summer bringing hope and help to those in desperate need. This year we re-shingled roofs and built porches to make their homes safer and dryer. It was a wonderful week hard work and heavy lifting, team bonding and faith abounding. We can’t wait to go back again next summer!
