At their June 23 meeting, the Session approved a fundraising effort to support the installation of solar electricity panels on the church roof. In addition to reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, the planned solar installation is expected to reduce WRPC’s electricity bills by approximately 10% annually over the 25 year life of the system. Stop by the parlor after church on Sunday to see an updated powerpoint presentation and get more information and answers to questions you may have.
Over the last few months the Session has read and discussed the recent changes in the PCUSA Book of Order regarding marriage. At its April meeting the Session confirmed this policy for WRPC:
Weddings and the Blessing of Marriage are part of the worshipping ministries of WRPC provided for members of the church, their immediate and extended families, students active in the life of the church, Presbyterian Campus Ministry students and alum. Couples regardless of gender may request a Christian service of marriage. As with any use of the Sanctuary the Session including the pastor must approve the request for a wedding service.
[See full Book of Order amendment below]
The Session welcomes your comments.
Christian Formation will facilitate an informational discussion regarding these denominational and session decisions.
Join the conversation June 28, 9:45 in the Fellowship Hall.
