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! 

Memorial service

A Service of Witness to the Resurrection in Celebration of the life of Janet Kuenstner will be held on Friday, August 6, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. in the Wyoming Presbyterian Church sanctuary. 

Current protocol requires that masks be worn in the sanctuary for the entire duration of the worship service. 

The service will also be live-streamed on WPC’s Facebook page and will be available to watch at a later date on Youtube.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Janet’s memory to the Winchester Gardens Resident Association Scholarship Fund. Janet was actively involved in selecting scholarship winners each year.
