Blog Images

As they were sitting at the table eating and dr...

But, given the...

Making The Most of Our Time

Updated Blog3

Good Morning wvBc Family! It's kind of wild not formally being together for two weeks in a row. We are working hard to creatively keep us connected. More about that this afternoon.

Update #3

TheLord'sloving kindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; grea...

Update #2

Dear wvBc Family, It seems weird and almost unnatural that tomorrow will be the first time in 15 years that we have not gathered together in some form or fashion.

We are pray...

We mentioned in our last email, the mandate to gather is very...
