2021 Annual Report

An Extraordinary Year

Dear Friends in Christ,

We began the year in isolation due to the COVID virus and no vaccine. We ended the year with the virus still a part of our lives, but with a vaccine and adaptations too numerous to count. Through it all, Jesus Christ was with us. We worshipped, we fellowshipped, and we served God through all the ministries you see in this annual report. Jesus Christ's words and deeds are seen in the actions of our congregation reported here. Praise be to God!

While "post-pandemic" has not yet arrived, it has changed the church. Some weeks we have more people worship in-person and other weeks we have more people worship online. A new normal. Adapting to a changing world is something God's people have been doing since humankind went to the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden. God did not abandon us then. God will not abandon us now.

Much of the coming year will see more adaption. Decisions and changes regarding our physical space, finding an associate pastor, and continuing to adapt to a changing world are in store for us. Regardless, the work of the mission of Jesus Christ will go on without fail at WGPC! It will be a blessing and I look forward to the work we will do together!

Peace be with you!
Pastor Ed

We seek to live Christ's love, welcome all people and joyfully serve God.
