! Red on Pentecost
The traditional color of Pentecost is red. It symbolizes the Holy Spirit appearing as tongues of fire that rested on the Apostles and gave them the courage to proclaim the Good News of Jesus. As a result the Christian church was born. As we celebrate Pentecost on Sunday, June 4, I encourage you to wear red. Let's see if we can get the whole church wearing red!SAVE THE DATE – CHICKEN BBQ
The annual finance committee Chicken BBQ is scheduled for Saturday, June 17th at 6:00pm. As in past years, we will be mailing out tickets in May. This year's proceeds are going to go to the operating fund as we try to bridge the gap between budgeted expenses and expected income. Please mark your calendars - we hope that all of you can join us for this special event! July 4th

This year's theme is "Where we encounter God and others"
Sunday School classes are held during the 9:00 am services for Pre-K through 5th grade students. 6th and 7th graders spend the first part of class in worship together and then meet in room 1-3. Younger children start out at the service sitting with their family and then are dismissed from Children's Moment to their Sunday School classes. Visit our Sunday School

The Path of Peace. This is a four week long devotional bible study. Each week we will travel to a local site to reflect on the message of the week and take in the beauty that surrounds us. Walking/Hiking ability & skill is not needed but you may stroll and take in the area after our discussion/devotion. All locations will be within 15 min’s of WUMC. Carpooling can be arranged.
We need to replace the altar cloths (paraments) that are placed at the front of the church each week on the altar, pulpit and in the Bible. There are four sets of paraments: white, green, red and purple. The white set is used the weeks we have communion, during funerals and other special occasions. The green set is used during the church period called “Ordinary Time”, and is most of the year. The purple set is used during Advent and the red set at Pentecost. The white and green sets have multiple stains and age spots that dry cleaning does not re-move. Each set of paraments costs $1500. We also need a new way to store these paraments, so they can be hung to avoid the creases that come from the folding and storage in a bureau. We plan to build a closet where these paraments can be hung and kept free from creases and dust.
Donations should be payable to Wilmington United Methodist Church and marked “ALTAR FUND”. Please consider contributing. If you would like to make a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one, please include a note with your contribution.
