Our Worship

When we gather to worship the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we come together as a family of faith who look a lot like all families: young and old, long-time believers and those new to the faith; those wearing jeans and T-shirt and those in their Sunday best. In our family, you will find people who think differently and disagree, but who choose to love each other despite our differences because of the unity we have in Christ.

Worship Schedule

• October – May: Two services at 9 am and 11 am

• 5th Sundays (in 2019: March 31, Sept 29, Dec 29): One service at 10 am.

Child Care

All children are always welcome in our services. A room where you can see and hear the service is located at the back of the sanctuary should you want to step out of the service. Childcare is always available for children ages 0-4 in the lower level of Heritage Hall when we gather to worship.


Children in Worship (9 am service)

Children from grades 1-5 spend the first part of service in the sanctuary, and then following a message for all ages go to Heritage Hall for the rest of the service where they have meaningful interactions learning the stories of our scriptures. This takes place October – May except on the 1st and 5th Sundays of the month when children are invited to participate in the whole service.

Music

Our 9:00 service leans towards a more folk style and is open for anyone of any age wanting to learn about or become involved in worship leading through music. Contact Peter Keating at keatingisland@yahoo.com for more information.

Our 11:00 service leans toward a more traditional style of hymns. Throughout the year, we present special music from choir, smaller groups, guest musicians, and soloists. It is an opportunity for people to share the gift of music that God has given without being committed to weekly rehearsals.


Several times a year, we feature our Gospel String group. They specialize in playing gospel songs, choruses, hymns, and old favorites with a blue-grass flavor that are as much fun to play as they are to listen to. The group is open to anyone excited about playing a stringed instrument which could include: the guitar, banjo, cello, mandolin, auto harp, dulcimer, string bass, violin, ukulele, etc. Practice-jams are generally every Friday evening at 7 pm.     


If you want more information about any musical group, contact the church office at wpc@whidbeypres.org.

For the Hearing Impaired

Through our Hearing Loop System, we provide hearing assistance to our members and visitors who have challenges hearing well during worship services. To access this system, you can use one of the personal receivers provided near the front entrance of the church, or if you have hearing aids that have a telecoil installed, simply turn on the telecoil setting for direct access to the church audio system.
