SUNDAY MORNINGS

Contemporary Worship

9:00-10:10 am We meet in fellowship hall  where a contemporary worship team opens with songs, followed by a  relevant and applicable message with audio/visual aids.  Coffee and treats are served afterwards.  The atmosphere is welcoming and informal.   Our Sunday morning children’s ministry, eXcite, meets at the same time so you have the option of leaving your children in the capable hands of our eXcite team or bringing them to worship with you.

Traditional Worship

10:30-11:45 am We gather in the Sanctuary for this service.  It has all the traditional elements and of course this means we sing the great hymns of the church.  The message here is relevant and applicable to all, while utilizing audio/visual aids.  While eXcite meets at 9am, we value kids of all ages at this service too.  Kids are provided worship bags and intentionally invited to participate in various components of worship as well.  We partner with parents to create a space for families to worship together through the traditional elements of worship.

Christmas Eve 2017

WHO NEEDS CHRISTMAS: Maybe you have thought about this question before: Is Christmas really necessary?   Have you been overwhelmed with shopping lists, baking & cooking, parties & plays, school events, or family commitments? Too many lights to untangle, gifts to pick out, and let’s not talk about that crazy uncle. Who needs the headache, the stress? Who needs Christmas?!?!  In short, we all do!  Join us Christmas Eve to uncover the truth our busy and complicated lives need to hear, because indeed we all need Christmas!

Contemporary Services:  5 and 7:30 PM in Fellowship Hall
Our early services are family friendly, laid back, and full of energy.  We will sing Christmas songs contemporary-style and then share a meaningful, relevant, and applicable message.  Our goal here is to welcome your entire family, kids of every age up through the greatest of grandparents.  We aim to create a space where you can worship together as a family!

Traditional Candlelight Service:  10PM in the Sanctuary
Our final service of the evening is peaceful, joyful, and full of Christmas Tradition.  We will sing Christmas Carols together, hear the story of the birth of Christ retold, celebrate the joy together, and hear a hopeful message: “The Light of Christ Shines in the Darkness”.  We end our worship together singing Silent Night by Candlelight.

LIVE NATIVITY SCENES: 5 & 10PM ONLY
This year WPC is doing something brand new.  20 minutes before each service (5 & 10 only) we will have a LIVE NATIVITY SCENE set up out front.  There will be live animals and real life characters to greet and welcome guests.  Families can get their picture taken and say hello to the characters as they come to worship.  So come a little early, grab a good seat, and then visit with Mary, Joseph, & the gang!
