Coping with COVID-19

Friends in Christ, this page is where you can find all the current information, updates and resources about how we are living into our calling as God's people during this time.  No matter how far apart we may be in body, we are one in God's Spirit, and we still seek to live Christ's love, welcome all people, and joyfully serve God.

Church Staff and Building

WGPC staff continue to serve! Some staff members are working from the church and some are working from home. All have email access and are checking their voicemail. Visit the Staff page for email addresses and phone numbers.

The building is closed for regular business. Some staff are usually in the building Tuesday through Thursday 9:00am-noon, but please call if you need to visit. If you ring the bell, please be patient in case someone has to come from the other side of the building to unlock the door.

Please be cognizant of social distancing guidelines. Hand sanitizer is available at the Hale Entrance.

Opportunities to Help (mostly) From Home

If you're finding yourself with some extra time on your hands and you're looking for ways to help others, here are a few ideas that have been curated by the Mission Commission and Advocacy Team. Feel free to let us know of other opportunities we can share.

Remember, we're all in this together. We can stay connected even as we are separated.

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