This usually means helping out only 4 to 5 times a year. Someone will also be there to assist you each Sunday.

The Book of the Twelve: Exploring the Minor Prophets
Over the course of this summer, our combined, adult Sunday School class meets in the South Wing at 9:30 am to explore the Minor Prophets. Each week we’ll survey a book’s history, message, reception, and discuss the significance of the book for our own faith journey. Join us as we continue to make learning a vital part of our life at Williamsburg Baptist.
Childcare During Business Meetings & Luncheons
Starting June 4, we will begin providing child care for all business meetings and all other meetings that follow potluck lunches. We are so excited to be growing as a church, but that means we must be welcoming to our young families and support them so that they can be involved. The childcare will be in the youth room that is just down the hall to your left from the kitchen. If you can watch the children 1 or 2 times a year during the post lunch meetings please contact Wendy Willson and let her know.
We have begun checking parking decals on our vehicles. Please be sure that your vehicles are duly marked as Billy Scruggs has arranged forunmarked vehicles to be towed. If you have no parking decal or temporary parking pass, WBC members may come to the office to receive them. Non-members must see Billy Scruggs, the WBC Building and Grounds Chair. Don’t worry about Sunday services; we will not be enforcing anything during worship times or church-wide events.

It's how we'll worship this Sunday.
