Dear members and friends of Wyoming Presbyterian Church,

            Writer Anne Lamott has said before, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” Even if you were not able to take time off this summer, hopefully the season brought for you and yours opportunities to unplug, to breathe a little easier, to rest and rejuvenate. To even be still and know that God is God.

            Though we are not in any kind of special liturgical season, this is a time of year when our rhythms shift.  Labor day, that day in which people of all trades and professions rest, serves as a final reboot for all of us before the new beginnings that fall brings-new schools, new activities, and for us at the church, a new programmatic year.  I would like to mention some highlights as we look towards an exciting upcoming Autumn at Wyoming Presbyterian:

  • Children’s Activities: We are beyond excited that Sabrina Legiec will be joining our church staff as our Children’s ministry coordinator. Sabrina has a strong faith and lots of enthusiasm for children and youth, as well as having served as a nurse manager prior to discerning a vocational shift. Look for exciting events geared towards children this year, as well as new programming in Sunday School.
  • Mission Activities: Activities abound if you are looking to give back to the community and to be transformed in the process. House of Mercy Mission, Team Refugee, Slave Free Community Project, and the list goes on and one. And of course, on October 5th the pumpkins will arrive for our Pumpkin Patch—a fundraiser so large is literally covers the WPC lawn for most of October.
  • Music Ministries: Steven Shellman and Ebony Wiggins have been busy preparing special musical offerings for the fall. New this year will be a “mini musical” that the children will perform in December. More details to come!

For specifics on the many activities in our vibrant community, please check out our website at wyomingpresbyterian.org or our facebook page (“Wyoming Presbyterian Church”) for more details.  As you “plug” back in to the fall, I hope you will join us as we as a community of faith continue to walk the path of faith together.

Blessings abound,

Rev. Caroline Unzaga

Interim Pastor
