A Letter from Shepard...

Dear Members and Friends of the First Church of Christ Woodbridge,


     I hope you all are well, safe and healthy as our days roll into 2021. This Christmas was exceptional in so many ways. I pray it was one filled with hope.

     I’m writing to remind you that I have but three more Sundays left to be worshipping with you; Sunday, January 17, 2021 being the last.

     I ask that you mark that day especially as we will come together to worship God and give thanks and praise for the years we have shared in the work of Jesus Christ.

     I pray our savior Jesus will keep you safe, healthy and hopeful in the days ahead.


In hopeful expectation of what the Lord has in store for us,

Rev. Shepard Parsons
