A Message from Pastor Tim

February 26, 2024

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

During the Annual Meeting of the congregation, the budget shortfall was presented. Session, committed to the fact that they could not ask the congregation to do what they themselves were not willing to do, committed to raise their pledges to help close the budget gap. 100 percent of the Elders on Session, along with the pastoral staff, have made this commitment. Now they are inviting you to follow their commitment and join them in this challenge.

Session and I believe WPC is at a significant and positive turning point. Worship attendance is growing. Youth fill the chancel steps for the children’s sermon. Fellowship time following worship is crowded. Tuesday Nights Together is a great success. We have a large Communicant’s class. Each week we have visitors attending our worship services.

Session, seeing this progress, felt making cuts to personnel would result in cuts to mission and programming. As a result, the forward movement of WPC would be greatly diminished at a crucial time of transition and forward growth.

Please prayerfully consider increasing your pledge. If you have not pledged, please indicate the increased amount of your giving. Please either return your pledge card by March 24th or click the button below to make a confidential, incremental pledge.

I believe this congregation can close this gap and continue moving forward. I believe this because God is good, and so is this congregation. Thank you for your commitment.

Pastor Tim McQuade
Interim Head of Staff
