Stewardship 2022

WHY WE GIVE? “We give to support WPC’s Mission.

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.

WPC partners with the Christian Appalachian Project

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!
