Benevolence Fund

Every now and then, there are members of our church or our extended community who could use a little extra help. When, we at WPC, are aware of these needs we try and help out. One of the ways we help is through the giving of either Price Chopper or Walmart cards. The funds from these cards come from our Benevolence Fund. The Fund has been depleted over the past year. If you are in a place in your financial life, where you feel you would like to give a little something to the fund, that would be most welcome. When giving, please indicate the monies are for the Benevolence Fund. In appreciation for what you can do for those in need, thank you!

Volunteers Needed

Office volunteers are needed! The office hours are Monday thru Friday 10:00 am-2:00 pm. If you have any time in your schedule to volunteer, stop by the office at 215 South Main (inside Norris Insurance) or call the office at 242-6703. You will be aiding cancer patients in receiving assistance. What ever time you can give is most appreciated!
