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.
Unfortunately, their body is narrower than the standard beam and when placed at standard widths, and insulated with standard insulation, they leave a gap making it easier for heat to escape into Continue reading The Trustees Work on the Fellowship Attic
Membership Opportunity Coming Soon
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!)
