! The Next 7 Words of Christ
On Good Friday we will hear the last 7 words of Christ. These are the words spoken by Jesus on the cross. It is a powerful reflection on Jesus' crucifixion and a moving reminder of God's love. This year, beginning Easter with Easter worship, we will begin a 7 week sermon series on "The Next 7 Words of Christ." This will be a reflection on seven things that Jesus said after his resurrection. It will be an opportunity to consider the blessing of our life in Christ and our call to faithful discipleship. Mark your calendars, invite a friend, and join us on this journey Spring Cleaning

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.
