Is your car in need of a good wash? (If you’ve been driving through the construction zone on the Beltline recently, chances are it does!) Stop by WBPC on Saturday June 1st between 10 am and 2 pm and get your car shining like new and support Granny’s Purse in the process. Our youth will be raising funds for our summer mission work and retreats by washing cars in the church parking lot. While the car wash is free, donations are greatly appreciated. You are changing the lives of others by letting us wash your car!

Mark your calendars now and plan on attending this special day in the life of Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church! We will have a special worship service at 10:30am in the sanctuary, and then a catered luncheon outside under tents starting at 12:00pm. Many past friends of WBPC, including pastors, staff, members and family will be joining us. And check out the display table in the narthex on Sundays with pictures and mementos that recall our past 75 years of ministry (many thanks to Marcia Bennett for sharing these). We look forward to seeing you then!
