A sign of Christ’s love for the world, starting right here in our local community and then reaching beyond.
Make plans to join us this Sunday morning at 9 am for our live-streamed service in the Sanctuary. Seating will be allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be done by the ushers to maintain social distancing. Masks must be worn the entire time and all safety precautions will be taken. UNLESS YOU NEED THE ELEVATOR we request that everyone use the main entrance to the sanctuary on East Blvd.

A Message of Gratitude
There are no words to express my thanks for all of your best wishes and many expressions of love as I approached my retirement. The cards, emails, hugs, and tears these last several weeks have overwhelmed me and were culminated in the presentation of your Love Offering. I was truly humbled and speechless.

As I look forward to the next season of my life, it is nonetheless tinged with a bit of sadness that I won't have my daily interactions and inspirations from working alongside you as we strived to carry out our church's mission of being "signs of Christ's love to the world."  

Dilworth Church, you are a part of my life story, and I will always carry in my heart the memories of 34 years of ministry that are my richest treasure.

With love, Carol Biddy
We celebrate Evelyn Cade Bondurant, born April 1, 2019; she receives the Sacrament of Baptism this Sunday, November 15.  Evelyn is the 19-month-old daughter of Alex and Molly Bondurant. The Bondurant family joined Dilworth in 2016, and they were married in the sanctuary that December. Evelyn is supported in person by her parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins. She is supported and loved from afar by so many more.
