Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
We rejoice that we are now open to up to 250 people in the sanctuary for Sunday morning worship at 10 am! We will continue to live stream the service so that you may worship in the way you feel safest. In order to be safe and "do no harm" as the family of God, please arrive early and be prepared to abide by the following protocols:

  • Wear a mask at all times 😷
  • Maintain 6-foot social distance ⬅️ 6ft ➡️
  • Enter sanctuary from the main front entrance (unless you have need of the elevator) 🚪
  • Sign in with the usher as guided 📝
  • Usher will seat all worshippers in "reserved for you" spots and ushers may lead you out of the sanctuary from back to front at the end of worship.

Thank You
Dear Dilworth Family,

Words cannot express how much the love, prayers, cards, texts and gifts have meant to me as I navigate this journey. I am humbled, blessed, and grateful beyond measure for such incredible support! While I have not been able to respond to everyone, please know your love has been appreciated by me and my family more than you will ever know!
With deepest gratitude and love,

Kelly
Altar Flowers
This week's flowers are in memory of Pat Phifer's birthday on April 13th. He is rejoicing in Heaven with his daughter Kelley and many other family members! 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.
