  Wye Parish Walking Tour
Following the 9 am Sunday service we will be inaugurating the self-guided walking tour introducing guests and friends to the history and significance of Old Wye Church. You will notice there are 12 stops, each with an online descriptive recording. Many thanks to Jim and Mary Campbell for making this tour possible.

The Offering Plate –
As we gather more now for in-person worship, we still are not passing the offering plate. Your ushers will leave the plate near the back of the church so that you may leave an offering as you enter or depart. Or, you may always take advantage of our online giving. You can access the Donate Now button at any time from the Wye Parish website. Thank you to all who have mailed their weekly or monthly offerings and to those who are already using our online donation service.
