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!)

“Time Marches On” is no longer a catch phrase but rather a truism. Especially are we aware of this fact when we stop long enough to recall the past however short or long the span may be. Nationally and internationally changes have been taking place so rapidly that one man cannot comprehend what has taken place unless it is such an individual as H. G. Wells or Continue reading Annual Meeting of Williston Federated Church 1937- 38
You are invited to walk and pray on our church front yard laby-rinth. Walking a labyrinth is like making a pilgrimage. It is a journey where you might think of loved ones, reflect on your busy life, pray for your children and grandchildren, slow down, spend time with God.
Outlined by bricks, the walking is done on the grass path and may be used by friends and community people. A large center stone serves as a place to sit and reflect before exiting the path. The new bench is placed to see the WFC steeple backed by blue sky, clouds, even sunlight on occasion!
Brochures with suggested prayers are posted on the bulletin board inside the hall-way near the door to the labyrinth. We expect to have an outdoor box to hold brochures later this month. Peace be with you.
