135th Anniversary Celebration (Sunday, August 24th) – 10 a.m.

Join us on August 24th for a once-in-a-lifetime service honoring our 135th anniversary. Special texts will be read, our choir will perform, beautiful music will be played, and we’ll celebrate after the service with a lively champagne reception. This will be a joyful Sunday you won’t want to miss!

Brew and Bible (Sundays, September 21st & October 19th) - After Worship ~11:30am

Come join us as we learn the basics of home brewed beer, sample home brews (and eventually our own church brew), help prepare for our First Friday events where we’ll share our brew with Wicker Park, and most importantly, pair the tastes of these brews with Biblical stories. This is a not-to-be-missed series! Look for more information and details in the weeks to come, and feel free to invite your friends. Not a beer drinker? That’s cool too! We’ll be brewing up fresh coffee for anyone who prefers a cup of joe.

Homecoming Sunday (Sunday, October 26th) – 10 a.m.

Join us for our annual Homecoming Sunday. All those whose lives have been touched by WPLC will gather together for worship, fellowship, and to give thanks. A magical children’s lesson will be given by Rev. Dan Shutters. Join us for worship and a potluck luncheon that follows, so bring your favorite dish to pass.
