Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John14:27

WYCC Commemorative Walkway Project
We have completed phase one in the construction of a new walkway at the entrance to The Cooper Parish Center. There is now in place a commemorative brick walkway designed for people to have an opportunity commemorate a loved one, a friend, a significant event, a prayer, a wish, or a dream. We are currently accepting orders for phase two of the project. We will be exchanging engraved bricks for blank bricks to fill out the walkway going forward. There are two commemorative bricks available for purchase, a 4x8 inch for $100, or a 8x8 inch for $200. The proceeds from the walkway will be used to help pay off the mortgage the church incurred during our renovation in 2012. Additionally, 10% of all proceeds will be used to support the work of our Missions Committee. If you wish to purchase a brick please contact the church office at (508) 775-0891.
