Mrs. Louise Felder
“A Faithful Christian”
On Tuesday, another saint from our congregation went to be with the Lord. Mrs. Louise Felder loved Jesus and served as our missionary leader for many years. Anytime the doors were open, she would be present. Professionally she took care of children in her home with love and concern. Her greatest desire for the kids was for them to know Jesus. Mrs. Felder often would reach their parents as well. Her love for her family was evident to all. She will be greatly missed. We are very grateful for her faithful service and love for us. We look forward to being reunited with her when Jesus returns. Please pray for God’s comfort for Steve, Theresa, Francine, Alex and Tom.

Sports Day: This Sunday
We have many athletes throughout our church. Many of our children play baseball or football or some other sport. There are volleyball players along with an equestrian rider. Of course, our adult softball teams won both the co-ed and men’s church division this spring. So it is appropriate that we would honor them and all of our athletes. We are asking everyone to support us by wearing their favorite jersey or team shirt. Most important, we are praying for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit throughout the service. This might be the week someone comes to know Christ.

Food Truck Party VBS Program: June 19-24
Many of us love to visit a food truck for a delicious meal. Our children are going to get on a roll with God as a parade of food trucks rolls on our grounds for the biggest party yet. This VBS program invites the children to pray as Jesus taught us in Matthew 6:11 “Give us this day our daily bread”. As always, there will be crafts to be made, songs to sing, games to play and great food to enjoy. There are classes from preschool up to those completing sixth grade this year. You can register your child at https://wcfn.mycokesburyvbs.com/ which would help us. Please invite your friends in your neighborhood along with your relatives. We still could use more volunteers. Let Regina Martin or the pastor know.

Crisis Care Kits
The Nazarene denomination collects Crisis Care Kits each year.
Specific items are placed in a large ziploc, boxed up and sent to our
headquarters in Kansas City. As needs arrive, in any part of the country,
these kits are sent out to offer relief and comfort. During the month of May,
we will be collecting individually wrapped bars of soap (2 per kit),
fingernail clippers and sturdy combs.
There is a box in the foyer to place your donations.
Thank you for giving.

Encouraged By People’s Giving​​​​​​​
People have been giving to the Lord and the church. We can’t tell you how much this means to us. There are five ways one can give. We have resumed Sunday morning worship services at 11 am at the church so you may bring your offerings with you. Many like to use the church’s secure website (wcfn316.com) to give their tithes and offerings. A few might like to text their gift to 803-219-4288. While others will mail it to the church at 350 Wattling Rd, West Columbia SC 29170. If you would like me to pick it up or if you would like to drop it off at the church, please just call me to set up a time. Again thank you for your faithfulness.

Letter From Pastor Bill

Hello Friends,

On Tuesday, another saint in our church went to be with the Lord. Mrs. Louise Felder will be missed by all. May God comfort Steve, Francine, Theresa, Alex and Tom. Her service will be on Saturday at noon at Thompson Funeral Home on Augusta Highway. Last week, Mrs. Linda Zorn passed away. Let us continue to remember Brother Harold in our prayers. Her memorial service will be on Saturday, June 17 in Cottageville. We are celebrating with Brother Bert Moody on the birth of his great-granddaughter Addison James. Madison, JP and the baby are doing great. We are expecting a wonderful Sunday as we recognize our athletes. We want to use the talents God has given for His glory. Pray that the service will be a powerful moment with the Lord. As far as prayer requests, please remember Vic Dent, Robin Wise, Bobby and Marie Mahaffey, Paul and Hope Hall, Elma Hendricks along with all of our shut-ins. Thank you again for being part of our church family.

God Bless,

Pastor Bill
