Conversation and Book
Do you know someone who doesn’t quite believe? Or are you not quite feeling it? Or you feel like you have to sacrifice what you learned and valued as a child to live authentically in the 21st century world? You are not alone. In fact there are many people who feel as you do. Let’s learn how a guy called SCIENCE MIKE traveled the same road as you. Mike Mchargue is host of the ASK SCIENCE MIKE podcast and author of Finding God in the Waves: How I lost my faith and found it again through science. Sign up to get the book on the bulletin Board near the education office and join in a conversation on January 28 at 12:30. Books can be purchased through Amazon or Cokesbury or we can order it for you. $10.00 each.

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.
