More Connecting, Less Correcting – A Way to Think About Rearing Children
Click here for a pdf version of Edla's presentation
Gifted parent educator Edla Prevette helped us sift through numerous behavioral management philosophies to access the most helpful strategies. We learned techniques for teaching children to make good choices, positive methods for allowing children to learn by consequences, how to create a personal family management philosophy, and much more!

Worship Bulletin Artists
Does your child like to draw? If so, he or she is invited to draw one of our worship bulletin covers. For the past twelve years, the drawings of our church’s children and youth have enhanced our worship services, providing fresh ways for our church family to view scripture passages. The young artist reads the scripture passage for a particular Sunday’s sermon, thinks and prays about it, and draws an interpretation. If interested, please e-mail Lynn Springfield with your child’s name, grade level, and your phone number.
WMPC is a Safe Sanctuary Community
We are called to create a community of faith where children, youth and adults grow safe and strong. God calls us to make our church community a safe place, protecting children and youth from sexual abuse. In response to this challenge, WMPC has developed a Safe Sanctuary protection policy.
