Remembering Two Saints
On Sunday, we will be remembering two saints who made a significant impact on this world by presenting their families with the Memorial Roll certificate.
Dr. William Ward
“The Godly Physician”
Dr. Ward had a family practice in Springdale for many years and was known for praying with his patients. He loved the Lord and it showed through his compassion and kindness to all. Dr. Ward especially loved to worship our Savior. Whether it was playing his harmonica or just singing, this precious man gave glory to God for all of his blessings. Dr. Ward loved campmeeting and was a fixture at the Moody Gunter Retreat Center. Missions and spreading the gospel around the world was always near and dear to his heart. We miss Dr. Ward, but we know he is around the throne of God worshiping His Savior who he loved and served.
Mrs. Charlotte Sanders
“The Encourager”
There are so many adjectives that would describe this saint that it is hard to narrow it down to one. Mrs. Charlotte was an amazing Sunday School teacher, the perfect pastor’s wife, an honest counselor, and the best friend anyone could have. But what may have stood out the most was how she encouraged everyone she met. Whether it was “shooting a prayer up” for a stranger she met on the street or talking with friends going through a difficult time, one always left Mrs. Charlotte encouraged. God used her every day to touch someone’s life. She also had a great sense of humor. The world was such a better place with this precious lady on it. We have and will continue to miss her.

Pray For Puerto Rico Mission Trip
Early Saturday morning, Lisa, Kristi, Luis and Jewell will be on a plane with other Nazarenes to go to minister in Puerto Rico. Please pray for safe travels and an effective week of touching people’s lives. They will return late Saturday night on July 2. Thank you for your support.

Guys, Golf & Grub: This Saturday
The first annual golf tournament begins at 2 PM at Charwood Country Club in Pine Ridge. Then at 6:30, the guys will enjoy an amazing fish fry dinner. Please join us for this fun filled day.

Preston Bayne & Anna Grace Mattox’s Wedding Shower: Saturday, July 9 at 1 PM
The Scripture states that we are to rejoice with those who rejoice. And our church certainly enjoys fulfilling this verse. On Saturday, July 9, we will have another opportunity to express our appreciation for Preston and AG. They have such a promising future and we are grateful they are a part of WCFN. They are registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond, and Amazon. Please make plans to attend.​​​​​​​

Encouraged By People’s Giving​​​​​​​
Throughout the pandemic, 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,

Hope all is well. This weekend is filled with activities. Early Saturday morning, our Puerto Rico Mission Team will leave for a week of ministry. Then Saturday afternoon, our guys will gather for golf and then enjoy a delicious fish fry supper. Then on Sunday, we will remember two precious saints (Dr. William Ward & Charlotte Sanders) that meant so much to our congregation by presenting their families with a Memorial Roll Certificate. This promises to be a special weekend. As far as prayer requests, please remember Lindsay Sulser's dad who was moved to a rehabilitation facility (Encompass) as he recovers from a stroke. Ally Mack Brown was hospitalized with a infection and Stanley Hook had another seizure. May the Lord touch. Thanks again for being a part of our church family.

God Bless,

Pastor Bill
