Grace and peace to you all!
This coming Sunday will be full of celebrations!
During worship we’ll be dedicating Trevor Lewis, who just turned one this past week. Just as in baptism, a dedication is when the congregation of WFC commits to help his parents, Heather and Dean Lewis, raise Trevor into a live of faith, joy and love. It takes a congregation to grow a child up in the knowledge of God’s grace!
We’ll also receive thanks for WFC’s support of COW (Color Our World), a wonderful organization that brings art supplies to people in need. COW recognizes that while people’s bodies need food, their spirits need beauty and creativity; COW provides art materials in developing countries as well as in food pantries right here in Vermont.
After worship, we’ll gather for WFC’s Annual Meeting. Some of that meeting with be very “business-y” – receiving reports, passing the budget, approving a list of leaders for next year. We’ll also be amending church policies and we’ll receive updates from the Search Committee and about the upcoming steeple repairs. This might not sound very celebratory … but I believe that an annual meeting is an opportunity to commit ourselves to all that God has in store for us in the future: we dedicate our monies, our building, our meetings, and our ministry together. We’ll have fun, even in the midst of the voting.
Come join the celebrations! Come be part of what God’s creating, right here in Williston.
