Bishop Smith offers 100-year old communion at Episcopal Church

WILLIAMS—Bishop Kirk Smith of the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona joined the congregation in a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Williams Episcopal Church in William on Sunday. The Bishop offered communion and also had the pleasure of performing two confirmations Sunday.

The Bishop noted that church buildings are different than other building the same age. In other buildings the businesses and owners change. Church Buildings, however, are always in the same business.

“St. John’s has a great past,” the Bishop told the congregation, “but you also have a great future.”

The Episcopal Church was founded in Williams in 1912, but the building was built October 12, 1932. Reverend Ann Johnson has guided the church for several years. The Church provides Advent Concerts during Christmas time in addition to standard Christmas and Easter services.
