In Memoriam
Robert(Bob) Powell Hodges
Our Dilworth brother in Christ
10/31/1982-2/4/2021

Our Christian love and sympathy goes to Bob's mother and our sister in Christ, Nancy Hodges. Please keep Bob's entire family in your prayer in this time of his sudden, unexpected death. The family requests that memorials be made to either Dilworth United Methodist Church or the CPCC Foundation. Bob was a faithful member of Dilworth his entire life and loved his church family greatly. He will be missed. There will be a private family service in our columbarium.

Altar Flowers
If you want to see these beautiful arrangements, make sure you watch the Worship service on Facebook Live. In addition to the calendar on Aisha’s office door, we’ve created a Sign-Up Genius to make it super easy to reserve a date to place flowers on the altar. Flowers on the altar make our worship more beautiful and alive. If you would like to use the church’s florist, The Blossom Shop, Aisha will be happy to call in the order for you. The standard seasonal arrangement they provide is $50 plus tax but will enhance it with specific flower and color requests for an additional cost. You can also bring in an arrangement from your garden, a market, or wherever you want to get them. We’ve got lots of available dates, so click here to sign-up for 2021, and let’s bring some of the beauty of God’s creation into our worship in the Sanctuary.
