Parsonage Progress Report

The board-approved contract with Chris Blackman, DBA Blackman’s Construction, was executed on Tuesday, February 27th. Mr. Blackman has his down payment and has started work. Thanks to Andy and Vicki Hanna, the carpet has been removed. Unfortunately, the wood floors under the carpets are in poor condition. The Olivers cut down a dead tree. Glenn Harris transferred utilities, replaced many light bulbs that were missing or burned out and obtained keys. Many thanks to Tim Gull for hauling away lots of trash. Electrical upgrades and roof replacement were completed this week.

The Quarterly Board Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 24th at 7 PM in the Fellowship Hall. Committee Chairs should be prepared to give written reports.

Martha’s Compassion Box

The CACS Committee sponsors WCC’s Martha’s Compassion Box. This is a “take what you need and leave what you can” compassion box for community residents. The box will house books for both children and adults, toiletries, and nonperishable food items. Individuals are welcome to contribute. Unfortunately, more has been taken lately than has been left. We still have an adequate supply of powdered milk and applesauce but are very low on other items. Please contribute what you can but NO perishables. 

Welcome Back, Children!

WCC is welcoming back our children. Each Sunday we will have someone go back with the children after the children’s sermon. They will enjoy a story from their Spark Story Bible that aligns with the morning message. We would love to see your children. We have a sign-up sheet on the sanctuary piano for those willing to spend some time on a Sunday with our children. If you would like to find out more about our fall plans, please contact Summer Smith, Melanie Pepon, or Tammy Fuller.

Children’s Bible Story Videos

The Education Committee will present Bible Story videos to share with the community.  We would love to have some guest readers so our children can feel connected to our entire community.  Please get in touch with Tammy Fuller if you would be willing to read a story for our children.  (No worries if you don’t know how to create one, our team will help you with that!)
