Teaching God’s Children is one of the most important tasks He can bestow upon us.
Flowers for the Sanctuary for 2019
Every Sunday we have two beautiful flower bouquets on our altar, many of which are sponsored by WPC members and friends. If you are interested in being a sponsor, there is a new signup sheet in the foyer for 2019. The cost for two bouquets is $20.00. If the date you wish has already been chosen, you may still sign up for that date and have a basket, which is $30.00.
You will receive a form to fill out approximately 3 weeks before your chosen date, where you will be able to fill in how you would like your dedication to be printed in the bulletin. Please consider checking out the signup sheet in the foyer to help support this ministry. Thank you, the Deacons
Snow and ice are in our future!
