Digital Church

WPLC is committed to being a spiritual and social resource in our community even as we remain physically distant from one another. All are welcome to engage in these ministries as we work to enliven our lives to work towards God’s abundant life.

WORSHIP LIVESTREAM

We are worshipping together via Livestream (using web-based connections or via telephone)!  Click here to get connected and to learn more. Sign up for text reminders before Worship Livestream begins by clicking here.

Virtual Fellowship

We’d rather be having coffee with you and moving around the fellowship hall, but for now, we’re going to do it virtually. Click here to learn more.

Community needs

As a congregation, we have agreed to “respond to human need, work for justice and peace, care for the sick and the suffering, and participate responsibly in society” (Constitution C4.03.f.) As such, we will continue to respond to those in need in the midst of this pandemic. Click here to learn more about how you can support or be supported during this time.

 

Working for Justice

At this time, the Congregation Council has decided to offer paid sick leave as needed along with paid time off for those who cannot work because of mandatory closings issued by the Council or the government. However, this issue of providing financial support and justly engaging with our employees is dependent on our generous donors and members. During this time of digital engagement, we invite you to continue to donate regularly to our “general operating” to ensure that we can make this a reality.
