“We were excited about our ‘Southern Service’ in Williamsburg the first of April,” reported Pastor Bruce North of Harmony Community Church in Winchester.
He was referring to his church’s spring ‘satellite’ services at the Timothy Christian School in Williamsburg, an effort to bring ‘Harmony’ closer to his congregants from South Dundas as well as to those others who might be interested in experiencing Sunday worship with Harmony Community Church.
In an April 17th email to The Leader, North reported that “we had 45 people in Williamsburg and 80 at our home site. We accomplished what we set out to do in this and thus justifying continuing with the project.”
Going forward, North has two more confirmed spring “Southern Services” planned for Timothy Christian School. “The facilities at Timothy Christian School are well suited for our needs. It was a good introduction for many of our people to the ministry of Christian education,” said North.
The next two services in Williamsburg will take place beginning at 10:30 a.m. on the first Sunday in May and on the first Sunday in June.
According to North, “we look forward to our May ‘split service,’ split meaning split between North and South services. Next time we will have the musical talent of Bonnie Wallace as our worship leader and special music.”
“In our June service we will have the music talent of the Gallagher Family singers,” added North.
In invitation, he offered the following: “We look forward to our next services and hope that some folk who are not actively part of a church in the community will feel comfortable enough to come and ‘check us out’.”
