Living the Love of Christ

August and September were amazing months with many of our WPC yellow-shirted volunteers active and visible in our home town of Webster!

Ongoing WPC Collaboration Events:

·         Miracle Field, located next to the Webster Courthouse, was dedicated on Saturday, August 25.  Rev. Eileen delivered the opening prayer at this heart-warming event.  Following the dedication, the first baseball game was played on the field before a huge cheering crowd.  Yellow shirts worn by WPC volunteers were visible throughout the large crowd attending the event.

The Challenger Flag Football League for the older youth and adults began in September.  Sponsored by Webster Parks and Recreation, upcoming games will take place at Challenger Miracle Field from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays, October 7, 14, & 21.  Come and cheer the teams on!

·         The Hope Ministry Garage Sale that took place at Holy Trinity Church in Webster during the week of September 10 was supported by many of our WPC members.  WPC volunteers were welcomed and thanked for their hard work throughout the week, many of whom worked multiple days.  The effort raised $20,000 which will support Hope Ministry as it continues its efforts to serve Webster residents with their needs.

Hundereds of books were remaining at the end of the garage sale on Saturday.  Bob Smith and Randy Nelson packed them up and took them to the Webster Public Library.  There were an estimated 400+ adult and children’s books which will be sold by the Friends of Webster Public Library in their upcoming book sale.  Hope Ministry’s director, Margery Morgan, and the Webster Library director, Terri Bennett, were pleased that this type of collaboration was possible in our community.

·         Hope Ministry hosted a Foodlink food distribution event on September 22 in the gymnasium at Holy Trinity Church in Webster.  10-15 of our WPC members made the commitment to volunteer at this event, for which Bob Smith was our contact.

·         Meals on Wheels is now enabled and 10 members (5 teams) from WPC will make up the delivery team.  Each member was trained as of September 6, and deliveries began on that date.  Delivery routes will be mostly in Webster, but some may be in the Fairport area.  Congratulations to Carol Saylor and her team for completion of training and now ongoing deliveries!
