Sunday, November 13th
WEPC Fellowship Hall

Over the past two years you may have attended one of our small connection dinner, but this fall you won’t want to miss the biggest connection dinner ever. Join us November 13th, 5:30pm, Fellowship Hall. Everyone is welcome! Our main dishes will be made by Ed and Pam Knight, and desserts prepared by Sue Miner. As part of our church family gathering we are asking you to bring a dish with a story…one that was a family favorite growing up or a dish that represents your heritage. Please bring either a vegetable, fruit, bread, or other side dish to share.

Stock the pantry to make Joe ride and then come enjoy a fun bike day! For every 20 pounds of non-perishable food, or every $25 donated, Joe Brown will ride his bike one mile. Last year we collected 2,306 pounds and we hope to make it more this year! Suggested food items are listed below.

The donation day is Sunday, June 26th, as well as every day of VBS (June 26-29).
