Four years ago St. Luke’s UCC in Trappe, PA began Wednesday Wavers. Each Wednesday from 7 – 7:30am between Memorial Day and Labor Day 10 – 15 members of our church stand in from of the church on Main St. in our red St. Luke’s T-shirts and smile and wave to those who pass the church. We hold signs (both sides of the street) that say: “God loves you, St. Luke’s loves you too.” We have received emails, letters, donuts, and coffee from people grateful for a smile and a wave on their way to work. It is simple and effective. People now know where the “Waver Church” is! They wave and honk and smile in return and we are blessed by their response.
