Did You Know…

Often in an active, mid-size and larger church, so many things are happening, it’s hard for everyone to know about and keep track of them all.  Yet these things are worth knowing about and celebrating.  This space has been created to keep all who are interested updated about all these good things.   This is just a sampling, listed in order, most recent first.  Scroll on down and see all the WFMC community is doing in our neighboorhoods and towns…and celebrate God’s goodness!
