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

- Children’s Activities: We are beyond excited that

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
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.
