Sunday, in church Conference, we approved changes to our by-laws and constitution. These changes will be helpful to our overall ministry effectiveness and church health as we continue to grow and fulfill the Great Commission of making disciples. Thank you for your input in the process. I'm praising the Lord for the unity of our church family demonstrated in our conversations around the "main things" and find this so very encouraging and refreshing. I'm especially thankful to Executive Pastor Chip Riggs and our Governance Ministry Team (Paul Chambers, Jon Channell, Jason Matthews, and Chris Morgan) for helping us navigate through this process.
Part of the new changes include the establishment of a Church Leadership Team. Over the next few weeks we will begin the process of selecting thus team and also additional Deacons to serve our church. This process will be completed by the end of the year in order for service to begin January 2018.
Have you connected with WFBC through church membership? I want you to be more than an attender! Whether a college student here for a few months or a local resident for years, membership in a local church family is the right thing to do. Why? Sign up today at watkinsville.org to attend our next Membership Info Night this coming Sunday at 5:30. Lots of the "whys and whats" will be answered that night and then you can prayerfully consider taking this step of connecting with our faith community.
