MUSIC IN DECEMBER

Our choir usually sings for worship twice a month. This month they will sing on December 8, 22 & 24. On the 8th they will sing Of the Father's Love Begotten. On the 22nd they will sing The Angel Gabriel. 

On Christmas Eve we will begin with an organ concert at 7 PM. That will be followed at 7:30 with our beautiful candlelight worship service. The choir will sing Angels from the Realms of Glory and Prayer for Peace.

In a choir a singer can experience “take your breath away” moments that come from being one voice among many, together in harmony. Music simply uplifts and beautifies those in and around us. Singing is known to benefit the singer in emotional, physical, cognitive and social ways. Come and explore how, through music, we can build a community of friendship, grow musically and serve our church body.

Rehearsals take place  in Ward Hall on Wednesday evenings. During December we will begin at 6:00 PM.
Come try it out! You’ll be glad you did.

Joint confirmation classes with First Arabic and Ankeny Presbyterian Churches are being held on Sunday afternoons from 1 – 3. The classes are for current high school students. The curriculum is “Big God, Big Questions.” 

We serve the CFUM (Children & Family Movement) dinner on the first Thursday of the month. We meet at the church at noon to prepare the meal and then leave  at 4:30 to serve the meal at Trinity Methodist Church. We are done with clean-up around 6 PM. Volunteers are always needed to prepare and serve the food. Donations of veggies, desserts and milk, or dollars to purchase the groceries are also needed. 


The third Sunday of each month is Food Pantry Sunday. The DMARC Food Pantry Network's requested donation this month is pasta, whole grain and vegetable varieties. The culturally appropriate request is dried noodles, Burmese style.

Our Sister Parish of the Presbytery of Des Moines distributes Don Justo coffee at WPC on the third and fourth Thursdays of each month. For more information or to order coffee, go to donjustocoffee@gmail.com.
