Hi everyone! I’m Kaylie Lewis, a member of the WUMC Youth Group. I'm also a Girl Scout Cadet working on my Silver Award project. This is my 3rd year participating in the 30 Hour Famine and I've realized how much hunger really affects our world. For my Silver Award I've decided I want to hold a food drive during the 30 Hour Famine to help the Wilmington Food Pantry and Burlington’s People Helping People program. I'm requesting that each 30 hour famine participant and each member of the congregation please bring in an item(s) from the list I have attached down below.
Canned protein-rich items like Tuna, Beef Stew, Chili or Sloppy Joes
Canned Pasta (Spaghettio's, Chef Boyardi)

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 $1,500. 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.Attention Previous WUMC Youth Graduates!!

Thank you to all the wonderful bakers who made the lovely scones, cookies and treats for our Special Grandparent Sunday. Your skills were delicious and made the day extra special.
Thank you to all. Your willing participation in our Sunday School No Muss – No Fuss Christmas Pageant made for a wonderful shared experience with our Kids. Your willingness to joyfully share the love of God through this wonderfully weird Christmas Pageant made the whole event memorable, fun and meaningful for everyone. Thank you again.
