Ice Cream Social

Sunday, July 18

Each year, WPC's Ice Cream Social is part of our community outreach as we provide free ice cream and other desserts before a Sunday Evening Concert on the Green. This year, we are asking for contributions of individually wrapped brownies or cookies (but no cakes or pies, please) that we can serve with the ice cream. Please leave them on the kitchen counter by 11 a.m. on July 18.

Rev. Wayne Morrison Retirement

On June 27, we will celebrate Pastor Wayne Morrison's retirement with a brief ceremony in worship following by a special time of fellowship and refreshments, with a few surprises.

Upcoming Blood Drive at WPC

The Red Cross currently is experiencing a severe blood shortage as the number of trauma cases, organ transplants and elective surgeries rise – and deplete the nation's blood inventory. WPC partners with the American Red Cross to hold blood drives throughout the year. The next blood drives here at WPC are:
- June 22 (11:30am - 5pm)
- August 9 (11:30am - 5:30pm)
- August 17 (1:30pm - 6:30pm)

To schedule a time to donate blood, click the link below or go to www.redcrossblood.org.

CHILDREN'S WORSHIP BAGS

Children's Worship Bags are available at entrances to the sanctuary. After worship you may leave them in the pew or drop them off at an exit. Please take home papers and crayons, but leave the "bigger" items so they may be enjoyed next week. Bags will be sanitized and restocked each week.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE A GREETER?

Even with limited capacity, we are blessed to be able to worship in person. You can add to the safety and joy of each worship service by volunteering to greet people as they arrive, on any Sunday. Greeters are asked to arrive at 9:20 or 9:30. Responsibilities include a friendly "Good morning!" and a smile
asking people not to enter the sanctuary before 9:30 a.m.

We need a greeter for each church entrance, every Sunday_
