BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE
Sunday December 16, 4:00 p.m. Christmas is a wonderful time of year for family and friends to gather and celebrate. But, for many it is a difficult time of year. It is a time where grief can overwhelm people as they remember those who have died and will not be the for Christmas. It can be difficult for those who feel alone, cut off or alienated from loved ones. It can be hard for those who struggle financially and cannot give the gifts they would like to give. In response to these very real concerns, we are offering a Blue Christmas Service, where people can come and offer their needs to Christ. It will be a service where we seek God's comfort and presence. All are invited to join us for this service. If you do not feel the "blues" in this season, come and support those who do. If you do feel those "blues" come to be present with others who care and with God.

WUMC to Assist Auburn Maine Ministry

The High Street Food Pantry is led by two organizations: High Street Congregational Church (HSCC) and the United Methodist Church of Auburn (UMC). This organization has been in existence for 20 years, and has a volunteer roster of 40 plus individuals ranging in age from 10 to 95. Besides UMC of Auburn and HSCC, other churches and two Community Banks that provide volunteers. Fifteen or more volunteers are required each week to keep things on track along with the five truck drivers needed for food deliveries from the Good Shepherd Food Distribution Center.


Wilmington UMC will be assisting this food pantry with its new ministry. BOOK MINISTRY This ministry collects and distributes children's books, dictionaries, Pictionary's, cookbooks, etc. Over 10,000 books have already been distributed. In many instances, the book distribution includes a "pastoral care" conversation. Any and all contributions are very much appreciated! How will we help? Throughout this summer we will be collecting books; Any and all books will be accepted and stored in room 2-5. Please bring your donations of new, used books for any age to 2-5 at any time through the summer. And add to the collection.

Can You Help
?
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.
