Wolfville Baptist Church
487 Main street
Our goals are to focus on three areas of church life:
1. Pastoral Care and Visitation
2. Development of Healthy Stewardship
3. Continuing the Process of Change
Our vision is to encourage people to work in teams and within their giftedness; we believe that serving God means unloosing our creativity and passion. It should be enjoyable, not drudgery. We plan to assist members to discover and develop their gifts.
