What's new at WBC
Please join us on January 15, as we welcome guest preacher Rev. Joshua Hearne of Grace & Main Fellowship in Danville, VA. Their urban farm is the CBF-VA Mission Box project for 2017; WBC will collect items to support the Fellowship's food production in February. For more info on Grace & Main, click here.
The Missions Council thanks all for their support of the Mary Stitt Angel Tree Offering...gifts were provided for 20 children of WBC's adopted families and a family referred by the city human services department.
The January special offering will support the WBC Benevolence Fund...gifts are used to help church members and others with specific needs...enclose your gift in the special envelope in the boxed set or use the Benevolence Fund envelope in the pew rack. November's Special Missions Offering supported two local organizations: Latisha's House, which helps rescue women from sex trafficking and exploitation...Grace Haven Family Shelter, a new initiative of the Greater Williamsburg Outreach Mission, a coalition of local faith groups, including WBC. Through your giving, we were able to send $600 to each organization.
