Wilson County fce Creed


We will strive to promote a better way of life for all through fellowship, continuing education and service;  To provide guidance in our homes and communities by the uniting of people to make the world a better place in which to live.  May we have pride in our roles as homemakers and family and community educators, and may our hearts be filled with joy as we serve.  Let us always be conscious of the needs of others and be strengthened by the "Divine Light" that guides us all.
