SUNDAY WORSHIP10:30 a.m.
Pastor Staci Imes, Parish Associate Dick Erickson and members of the congregation lead adults in exploring together throughout the year (except in summer) a variety of topics, devoting four to eight weeks to each topic. Recent classes include a study of the Book of Acts, Lenten meditations by Rowan Williams, and expressions of faith in contemporary films. Class begins at 9:15 Sunday morning when participants gather on sofas with coffee in hand to learn and to share their insights with each other. For some congregants, the adult education classes are the reason to come to worship regularly on Sunday mornings.
Children from kindergarten to 6th grade participate in Sunday school from 9:15 a.m. to about 10:15 during the school year. They are encouraged to attend the worship service and to receive communion. We use the Seasons of the Spirit curriculum.
The Men's Group meets monthly on the first Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast. The Movie Group meets on the 3rd Friday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the Gathering Space to watch a movie together - usually rated G (Movie Group takes a break for July and August). The Book Club, the "WPPC Readers", meets periodically - please see the weekly bulletin for updates.
Held at Warm Beach Camp just an hour north of us in Stanwood, WA, this intergenerational event provides something for everyone who attends - worship, study, singing, walking, swimming, skits, horses, mini golf, high ropes, food, quiet time, games, fun and fellowship. Some folks come up for the whole weekend and some just for the Saturday. All are encouraged to attend - scholarships are available with funds raised by the Fellowship Committee throughout the year. This year's retreat will be held August 22 - 24.
