Help the Salvation Army Rescue Christmas!Campaign is open now. Deliveries due December 7.
We hope you will make Christmas Day special for someone less fortunate. The need this year is great and will run a bit differently than in the past. Below are the simple steps to participate.
WPC’s response to the Salvation Army Angel Tree program has been great. There were more requests than tags available. All of the initial 70 tags were selected and picked up at the drive by last Saturday. The need is very high this year, and we have 25 more tags to give out. You can still adopt an Angel by signing up here.

If you do not want to shop yourself, you may send a donation (check or Target/Walmart gift card) to one of the WPC coordinators, who will shop for you, or directly to the Salvation Army, 216 Ironbound Road, Williamsburg, VA 23188.We will have 60 Angel Tags for children and 10 tags for seniors. By adopting an angel and buying gifts for that child or senior, we demonstrate the true meaning of Christmas - God’s gift of love. Gifts should be returned to the Salvation Army office by December 7.The Christian Outreach Ministry and the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary thank you for your generous support.
The sanctuary will be festive even as many of us experience Advent and Christmas online.
Although most of us are not worshiping in person in our sanctuary, we can still experience the interior through our online services. We are used to our chancel showing the colors of Advent and Christmas and this year will be no different.
The Worship Ministry hopes you will join us in this visual display once again by donating a poinsettia. Your dedication will appear in the bulletins on December 20 and 24. The requested donation is $13 per plant.There are two ways to order: 1. Download, print and mail the order form to the church with your payment, or 2. Use the convenient Poinsettias donation order form below and pay online.

Experience the true spirit of Christmas giving by supporting one or more of these 19 programs during the Christmas season. They are on the front lines daily of helping children, men and women in our community who need a helping hand to deal with problems in their lives that can be overwhelming.

The Joy Offering provides an opportunity to reach out to those in need through the support of our financial gifts.
All gifts are designated to the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions (BOP), which helps church workers financially when they encounter challenging circumstances.

We can also change lives. Through the Christmas Joy Offering, we connect with the young people attending Stillman College, Presbyterian Pan American School, and the Menaul School. Our gifts support education and leadership development for students of color, who will soon be leaders in our church and in the world.
Due to COVID, this year there will not be any offering envelopes available. You may mail a check to the church office, with Joy Offering designation on the memo line. You can also contribute electronically through the link below.
