Most Wednesday and Saturday mornings, a group of folks are working to re-insulate the ceiling of the Fellowship Hall. Insulation comes in standard widths and is expected to fill the gap between beams that run the width of areas like the Fellowship Hall. Above the Fellowship Hall, engineered beams were used instead of standard with lumber. These beams look like the iron I-beams we are all familiar with. They tend to be stronger and cheaper than standard lumber.
All are welcome here at WFC. Being a full member of the church is not a requirement for participation in all aspects of worship, serving on committees, providing outreach and service to others. It is an opportunity to make a public statement of Christian witness.
If you are new to the church community, or have been worshiping with us for years, and are interested in joining the church, there will be an informational meeting Feb. 5th in the sitting room, beginning right after worship and concluding at noon. Child care will be available. Continue reading Membership→
Every year the Rotary Club holds a meal intended as a Thank You for the Seniors of Williston and Richmond. For the last 18 years this tradition has been carried out. This year was no different, the luncheon was held on December 8th, at the Williston Federated Church Fellowship Hall.
The Kids4Peace over-night retreat held in the Fellowship Hall last weekend had 18 kids and adults writing encouragement messages for children who will be receiving Color Our World art supply kits to help them endure traumatic situations such as hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.
On the next day of the retreat, they painted the ‘Magic Suitcases’ which will hold the kits that they filled with supplies. Other weekend activities included Skyping with friends in Seattle whom they had met at last summer’s National Camp and discussing how last week’s election affected them and will affect the future mission of Kids4Peace. (p.s. Thanks to WFC for leaving the delicious treats for us!)
The Williston Federated Church is a community that seeks, welcomes and gathers people to share the Gospel of God’s love, enables people to find fullness of life through Jesus Christ, goes into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ, and responds actively to human need.
Join us at worship!
Sunday Worship Service, 9:30 am
Our worship seeks to provide an experience that respects and reflects our United Methodist and United Church of Christ connections.
Nursery care is available each Sunday for infants up to age three.
Children and youth are in worship through the Story for God’s People of All Ages, after which they depart for Christian Education (Sunday School) classes.
Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Children are welcome, with their parent’s permission, to participate in the sacrament.
The best way to find out about our worship is to experience it, so we invite you to be our guest soon. Visitors and newcomers are always welcome.
My, oh, my, how things have changed with Kids4Peace! Because Williston Federated Church has been so supportive of this organization, and I am entering my 8th year as
art teacher for the Vermont chapter, I shall try to summarize all the recent developments that, to be honest, have had our heads spinning in amazement! When Kids4Peace first began, the intent was to give children respite from the violence in Palestine and Jerusalem by bringing them to a 10 day summer camp in the United States where they could feel safe and nurtured. The kids were 10-12 years old of Muslim, Christian and Jewish faiths; they and their Continue reading Kids4Peace News submitted by Nancy Stone→
