Weekly Edition of Church News & Notes: 10.23.20

This Week’s Sermon Title: “Loving Someone From The Other Party”​​​​​​​
We continue our series called “A Voter’s Guide To The Election” with a message about how to care for someone who doesn’t hold the same views as we do. The Scripture for this sermon is from Matthew 22:34-46. Once again, Jesus is dealing with a question the Pharisee asked to try to trap him. As always, we would never suggest or even hint who one should help elect. Let’s pray for our nation as we go through this turbulent process. Hope you will join us in person or on Facebook Live at 11 on Sunday.

300 Treat Bags & 6,000 Pieces of Candy​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Halloween is just a week away so we are encouraging everyone to bring in candy on Sunday so we will have a good idea of how close we are to filling the 300 treat bags for the kids in our community. Thank you to those who have already brought their candy to the church. Please pray that families attending this event might experience the joy the Lord has given us and they will want it as well. We still need volunteers willing to greet guests and assist the cars as they enter and leave our grounds. If you have any questions, please see the Pastor or Dee Black.

Doug Hudson Leads Worship At Drive-In Praise Service​​​​​​​
The last Sunday of each month, our drive-in praise service is pleased to have Doug Hudson sing for us. His broad vocal range allows him to perform a variety of Southern Gospel classics. If you have never heard Doug’s music, join us and you will be glad you did. Our service starts at 5:30. The FM Transmitter worked well so that attendees could listen through their radio.

Membership Sunday: November 22​​​​​​​
Belonging to our church definitely has its benefits. Members serve on our church board and teach our small group classes. They also are eligible to vote on major issues while also being able to hold district positions. If you are not a member of WCFN, please consider making this the year. The pastor gave a membership class on Facebook Live this past June that can be watched through our Facebook page. He will also offer another membership class in November. Please let the pastor know if you are interested in joining our fellowship.

A Word For Our Teens From Pastor Victor​​​​​​​
Blessing to you all! Last week we read about the amazing sacrifice of a poor widow giving everything she owned and applying that to our lives. Are we trusting in God and giving Him our first fruits? Are we going above and beyond? Join us again this Wednesday at 6:30 to hear more awesome stories of the Bible!

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,

Halloween is just a week away! I know when I was a kid, I loved trick or treating. Thank you to everyone who has already brought in candy for our event. We are hoping to have all the snacks at the church by Sunday so we can start making the bags a little early. We would like to congratulation Brandon and Kimberly Stokes on the birth of their son, Casey. Mother and baby are doing well. We are also thankful for the progress Ray Wright, Paul Martin, Donna Jenkins and Charlotte Sanders are making from the surgeries. Please continue to remember Elma Hendricks, Ben Pearman, Roxan Weed, Miranda Birchmore, the Halls and all of our shut-ins. On Sunday, the message will be titled "Loving People From the Other Party" from Matthew 22:34-46. Hope you will join us either in person or on Facebook Live at 11.

God Bless

Pastor Bill
