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."
Sock-tober in July & into August
Fourth and Hope is currently holding their annual back to school Sock Drive. Clean socks are one of the most requested items by the guests at their emergency shelter. The shelter is requesting new socks for guys and gals of all ages.
Last year we collected nearly 600 pairs of socks for adults and children returning to school.
Two collection boxes are in the narthex for guy and gals socks, next to the basket for dental supplies and toiletry items. We will make two deliveries this year, one at the start of the school year in August, and a second delivery in late September.
If you have other items that are not on our request list that you would like to donate, please check with a member of the Mission team first. It is helpful to attach a note so that they don't wind up in our "Lost and Found" box on the opposite side of the Narthex.
Thank you for all your donations!
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.
The mission of Ukrainian American House is to promote bilateral working relationships within the United States and Ukraine in culture, business, economy, education, and government in order to establish practices that would decrease obstacles pertaining to foreign investments and market access.
As of February 24, 2022, their mission has pivoted to solely focus on providing humanitarian aid to the people of Ukraine fighting for their freedom. UA House is uniquely positioned to provide critical assistance due to previously established working relationships with Ukrainian and US government officials and organizations.
