Advent Mission Opportunities
Prepare a Place Project
WHPC is introducing a new mission project for Advent. In partnership with the Foundation for the Homeless, we will be putting together move-in kits for local families transitioning from homelessness into housing. Stop by the parlor, pick an item off the tree, and bring it back by December 23. Together, we can share a tangible expression of the love and welcome of Christ.
Christmas Eve Offering 2018
Mobile Loaves and Fishes will be the recipient of this year’s offering, which will be used to buy a new food truck for their ministry. The new truck will replace the oldest in the fleet at our local commissary and make it possible for volunteers to go on hundreds of runs and serve over 20,000 meals each year. Over the next few weeks, all are encouraged to prayerfully discern your participation in this offering and to give generously on Christmas Eve, during worship or online at whpc.org.
