What is Worshiping Outside Walls? WOW Sunday is dedicated to going outside our church to serve our community through various service projects, and worshiping with those who are homebound or reside in an assisted living center. First United Methodist Church (FUMC) in Waxahachie began WOW several years ago in the spirit of God being everywhere, all the time, not just in our church building on Sunday morning. CPC began partnering with FUMC in this community outreach in 2013. Together, we will bring worship out of the building and share God’s love!
WOW Sunday 2017 will be October 22nd
WOW Sunday looks like this:
- 8:30 am Breakfast and short commissioning at First United Methodist Church Family Life Center, 505 W. Marvin Ave.
- 9:15 am Depart for worship/service project sites
- Worship services are at 9:30am and 11am
