WELCOME TO WPC
"Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles He performs for people!" -Psalm 66:5
At WPC we seek to be a community of faith with open minds and open hearts. Rooted in Christ, we work together to grow a harvest that gives us the opportunity to realize how blessed we are to be a blessing to others. Through worship, mission, and Christian Education, we seek to discover new ways to encourage one another both inside and outside the sanctuary walls. In all that we say and in all that we do, we do our best to mirror Christ by welcoming everyone regardless of race, age, gender, sexuality, or economic condition. We invite you to come and see, and to connect through the various ministries that are a part of life here at Washington Presbyterian Church.
A Place to Send Christmas Gifts
If you're looking for a way to donate to families who need gifts for children of all ages, please click here and get in touch with Threads, Hope, and Love. We are unable to accept donations at the church at this time. Thanks for all your prayers and support!
God has blessed us in so many ways and we stand in awe of His presence, even (and maybe especially!) in the wake of the storm. We have received phone calls and emails from all over the country asking how people can help. I thank God for the ways His love shines through you all!
At this time, we are only accepting monetary donations and gift card donations. Monetary donations may be mailed to the church. Please do not send cash. Checks may be made out to Washington Presbyterian Church with "tornado relief" in the memo. The monies we receive will go directly to helping those in need. We would like gift cards for Kroger companies, Wal-Mart, Target, and other places in the central Illinois area where folks can buy food and supplies. An effort in the community is being made to set up a central fund for monetary donations, and I will keep you posted on those details.
Please do not send clothing of any kind.
WPC is partnering with the community of Washington and the Washington Ministerial Association to make sure help gets where it needs to go. If you are looking to volunteer labor hours, please contact AmeriCor at 309-698-5002. Those who were affected by the tornado and are looking for help with debris removal can call 309-698-5001.
If you are in need of someone to talk to for mental or emotional health services, please call the Disaster Distress Hotline at 1-800-985-5990.
Thank you all so much for all of your prayers and your thoughts. Praise God for YOU and all that you are wanting to do. When specific needs arise, we will let you know!
Wishing you the peace of Christ,
Rev. Rebecca Weltmann
