Community Thanksgiving Service
Can You Help?
The Community Thanksgiving Service will be held on Sunday, November 19 at 6:00 at the Congregational Church. It will be a wonderful opportunity to gather as a town and give thanks for all the ways that God has been present in our lives during this year. It will be a service filled with music. All are invited to join us for this service.

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.PUMPKIN PATCH VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Calling all WUMC Folks.
