Have 4 Minutes to Read? – EveryONE Belongs Initiative
We want to be sure your family knows that WPC cares about them and that you still feel like you belong. We talk a lot with our youth group about being an inclusive youth group as opposed to one that is simply open or respectful. We want people to feel included and feel like they belong. As a church we are “the body of Jesus Christ.” With Christ we know we are loved. We know we belong. With WPC we want to ensure the same things for one another.
Over the next few months either myself or one of our leaders will be giving you a phone call. We want to chat! Your home has become the de facto school for your kids. You’ve also become the de facto pastors in your home leading your family on this murky spiritual journey. We want to know how you’re family is doing, what’s working that can be shared with others, what roadblocks your facing, and how we can best rebuild this amazing youth group better when the time comes.
To say that our high school youth group has been deconstructed would be an understatement. After 9 long months (with plenty to go) our youth are losing touch with each other. Just this past week while meeting with a couple of our high schoolers for prayer we were each noticing how much they’ve changed since the last time we were all present with one another. Nine months may not seem long to you and I but to a high schooler it’s forever! What does our Holy Text say? “A 1000 years is like a day to the Lord” so maybe the reverse is true. A day is like a 1,000 years to a high schooler.
This is one way for us to rebuild these meaningful relationships. I’m personally very much looking forward to connecting with each of you in the coming months!
Have 8 Minutes to Read? - Wednesday Bag Lunch is now TUESDAY Bag Lunch
We have made some changes to the bag lunch outreach that started back in April of 2020. For many years WPC (along with other congregations) have provided nourishing meals and community for those suffering on the margins of society in Southern Marin. That “Thursday Hot Lunch” program became the “Wednesday Bag Lunch” program after shelter-in-place orders took effect and our youth ministry and Friday Morning Men’s group jumped in to keep it going. We committed then to providing 30 bag lunches to be distributed by our friends at Sausalito Presbyterian and we’re amazed by the response of our community. We found purpose, routine, and community even for ourselves with the weekly ritual of stuff bags for those in needs.
We have now switched the day to Tuesday because the apparent needs of our area have shifted. We are now collecting bag lunches for those in need specifically in Marin City. It is becoming increasingly obvious to us that many of your kids’ classmates (or maybe yourselves) who have homes but are struggling to make ends meat are caught in a sort of gap of help. Carole Gunn (WPC member) took all her passion, enthusiasm, and skill and is taking the baton so we can share this sort of love with our neighbors. If you ever came to the Wednesday Bag Lunch drop off you probably saw Carole there.
We will continue to meet our commitments on Wednesday through our signupgenius link. It is important that we do not bring more than the 30 lunches people have signed up for because we just don’t have anywhere to take the extra. They will go to waste. Please note, we have 10 slots to sign up for. Each slot means you’re agreeing to make 3 lunches. If you’d like to help us out on Wednesdays please do so through the link below:
