Girl Scout Sunday @ WPPC

Sunday, March 10th we celebrated Girl Scout Sunday at WPPC!  On Saturday, girls from several troops and churches came to WPPC to participate in a “My Faith, My Promise” workshop.  During Sunday worship, we used some of the liturgy and prayers that the Scouts had written.

Lenten Biblical Storytelling Series

Rachel Doll, our Christian Educator, is offering a Biblical Storytelling workshop on Fridays in Lent – beginning tomorrow, March 8th at noon. Bring a bag lunch and come learn from a gifted storyteller a wonderful way to savor the sacred stories of Scripture.

Rachel Mountain Pic

“Learning to tell a passage of scripture by heart has been hands down, the most powerful addition to my faith journey. Join me from noon-1 each Friday in Lent at Winter Park Presbyterian as together we learn the Easter story in Luke, when the women go to the empty tomb. Bring a bag lunch and come learn a new way of interacting with scripture. Note: no one will be forced to tell scripture in church! See you Friday!” Rachel


Come Fridays at noon during Lent to Winter Park Presbyterian and savor the story!
