New Member Informational March 8th
If you are new to the church community, or have been worshipping with us for years, and are interested in joining the church, there will be an informational meeting March 8th in the sitting room, beginning right after worship and concluding around noon. Child care will be available.
At this meeting you will learn more about what church membership means, hear a bit of the history of WFC and our denominational connections to the United Methodist and the United Church of Christ and have an opportunity to meet with others. 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 interested in attending and would like a “Membership Information Packet” in advance, please speak to Pastor Paul or a member of the Membership Committee: Carol Bouchard, Carol Burbank, Gary Lewis, Ruth Magill, Sally Metro, Elaine Pellechia, or Vicki Trueman.
