Matthew 25:40, “. . . I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."

The Christmas Joy Offering has been a cherished Presbyterian tradition since the 1930s. The Offering distributes gifts equally to the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions and to Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color. The Assistance Program provides critical financial support to church workers and their families. Presbyterian-related schools and colleges provide education and leadership development while nurturing racial and ethnic heritage. This has been a Presbyterian commitment for nearly 140 years.

WPC Mission Committee
WPC Members are always seeking educational opportunities to present to the congregation and community about being good stewards of our community and world.
In our community, WPC continues to support Fourth & Hope homeless program through volunteering time cooking and serving meals. WPC holds an annual sock drive in the fall. We are always collecting needed articles for the homeless year-round. WPC is involved with the Lifestyle Stewardship work group, an organization who brings environmental education to the congregation so that all can be good stewards of God’s earth.
Woodland Presbyterian Church is a member of Woodland Ecumenical & Multi-Faith Ministries (WEMM), an organization composed of various Woodland faith groups. WEMM organizes the annual Christmas Food Basket distribution in Woodland, organizes an ecumenical Thanksgiving service, and identifies other outreach efforts to assist residents of the community.
On a global effort, the WPC congregation purchases their beverages through the Presbyterian Coffee project. It is an organization that supports coffee farmers who receive fair-trade prices for their coffee and teas. During Christmas time we encourage our congregation to participate in the Annual Alternative Christmas Gift Sale whose sales support artisans in developing countries.
