WSBC Missions Lunch
For the last few months, the Missions Committee has been looking at the ways we do Missions at Watts Street and the ways we connect (or struggle to) with God and each other in our work in the world. And we’d like to share this new plan with you. On Sunday, January 27 following worship, you are invited to a complimentary lunch in the Fellowship Hall to learn how to connect with different mission areas and your fellow church members in this new model of work and life together. Come find out how we create community both inside and outside the church.
