Find Out More about Serving Locally

Check out our updated web pages for the “Serve Locally” section of the WPC website. We’re trying to make it easier to volunteer as well as appreciate the breadth of our involvement in the community.

Under “Local Organizations We Support,” you will find descriptions of (and web links to) more than 20 non-profit and community groups that our congregation partners with on a regular basis. These organizations play a vital role in sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry, mentoring youth, and so much more. We provide both direct support and financial assistance. You will be amazed at all the different ways we are involved and how much we are doing to further the missions of these local organizations.

Visit “Local Opportunities to Volunteer” to explore options to help people in need in our community. Find the best match for you by first selecting the type of work you’d like to do (counseling adults, hospitality, manual labor, mentoring/tutoring students, preparing meals, driving, etc.). Then, from the list of opportunities, review the brief descriptions, the level of commitment, and when, where, and who can help. Whether you are looking for a one-time event for a group of families, a weekly commitment for yourself, or anything in between, we think you’ll find a great opportunity waiting for you.

Don’t forget to check out “Local Opportunities to Donate Goods.” Help us provide comfort, nourishment, and hope to those in need by donating food, clothing, furniture, and more. Take a moment to review the wish lists of organizations we support and find out when and how to donate your goods.

We believe it is essential to the life of faith to reach out with compassion to those in need. Now is a great time to put your faith into action in the local community!
