Update: Sadly, our WLW meals are no longer being offered this school year as a result of the pandemic. We intend to be back, better than ever, next September!
West Lawn Wednesday is a filling station in the middle of our busy week and is open to the community. We gather together to first fill our bodies with a delicious home cooked meal enhanced by friendly conversation and laughter, then transition to classes, worship and mid-week programs designed to then fill our souls. Each week, with warm, embracing smiles, our devoted Kitchen Ministry Team and Class Facilitators serves “welcome” on a plate and in our gathering rooms.
West Lawn Wednesday (WLW) began as a means to bring together the attendees of our four Sunday services for a time of midweek food and fellowship. The goal was not fund raising. However, since WLW began in 2001 with 12 servant volunteers serving 40 of our members, over $155,000 has been contributed to support outreach programs and various mission projects in the Reading area and beyond. In 2018, this team served an average of 400+ people per week, many of who are not members of our congregation. This 2019-2020 year marks our 19th season of West Lawn Wednesday activities!
