You are cordially invited to the Annual Congregational Meeting Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 9:45 in The Ministry Center. Join us for this wonderful opportunity to learn more about the future of our church.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, February 1st, when there will be another wonderful bake sale at our church - just in time for Valentine's day. Come by some sweets for your sweetie... or for yourself. All proceeds from this bake sale will be used to support our WF kids and leaders who will be buying all materials to then build two houses in Guatemala this summer. Look for more details to follow. Any questions, contact Alice Lechiara.
Join us Wednesday nights beginning February 25th, for a light supper, meaningful worship time, and study. We will meet in Stewart Hall for food and fellowship from 6:15 - 7:00 p.m. (there is no supper on March 18th), worship from 7:00 - 7:30 p.m., and a time of study using our brand new 2015 Lenten Devotional from 7:30 - 8:30 p.m. Families and people of all ages are welcome! There will be a free will donation to offset supper costs.
We are collecting canned fruit on Sunday, January 25th
This year our Kirkin' celebration will focus on our church's connection and support for Presbyterian missions and our partnership with our denomination's seminaries.
A highlight of this annual event is our colorful procession of the tartans carried by members of Scottish blood. If you have your personal tartan and would like to join the procession contact Ruth Lundy.
Our special guest preacher at the 8:45 & 11:00 a.m. services is Dr. Frank M. Yamada, President of McCormick Presbyterian Seminary in Chicago.
Our Executive Presbyter will be with us in Stewart Hall during the education hour, 10:00 - 10:45 a.m., to explain to us how Christ’s Mission is expressed through our corporate witness (ie. As churches). This is to remind us of one of the foundations of our Mission Statement at the church - The Mission of Jesus Christ at First Presbyterian Church of Wheaton is: to provide witness to the reconciliation of people through and beyond the gathering of the church.
Childcare for ages 1-3 is available during the service. Older children are invited to stay in the worship service with their parents.
