• Five Williamstown churches met at WCC on Easter for a Sunrise Service. Special music was presented by the WCC choir and Tony McKinnon of the Family Worship Center brought the message. At the Sunday morning worship services, Senior Minister Gary Swick  concluded the series on the cross with “Take a Look at the Cross Through the Eyes of the Resurrection,” preaching from Luke 24:13-35, the walk to Emmaus. From this event we learn that Jesus waits to be invited; He always went when He was inivited; He became the host, not the guest; He takes over.
