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 require 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.

Please be mindful of safe social distancing in our sanctuary. The signs taped to the pews alert us to safe seating. If the sign is on the end of the pew, we ask that you and your family sit beginning at the end of that pew. If the sign is on the middle of the pew, we ask that you and your family sit in the middle of the pew. If there is NO sign on the pew, we ask that you leave that pew vacant. As always, please fellowship freely with one another once you depart the building in our lovely front yard, courtyard, or parking lot. Thank you for minding the safety of all folks.

Welcome Guest Preacher
WE WELCOME to our pulpit today, the Rev. Santosh Niroula. Rev Niroula is the pastor of Fountain Hill and Mt. Moriah United Methodist Churches in the Uwharrie District of WNCC. Before his current pastorate, he was an associate pastor at Central UMC here in Charlotte with Pastor Michelle, concentrating in ministry with the immigrant community. Rev. Niroula is from Nepal, serving with both the Baptist and United Methodist denomination there before moving to Charlotte 5 years ago. He received an M.Div. from India Bible College and Seminary and then completed the COS at Duke Divinity in 2019. His reason for coming to Charlotte was his marriage to his wife, Munna Giri, and they now have two beautiful daughters. Please give Santosh a warm Dilworth Church welcome.
In Memory
We gratefully acknowledge memorial contributions to Dilworth Church by Bill Parlier in the loving memory of Clarence Faile, Joyce Seller's brother.
We Express Our Deepest Sympathy
Our love and sympathy go out to Jon, Gina, James, and Mac Windham in the death of Jon’s father, Jim Windham of Gastonia, following a lengthy illness. Please lift Jon and his family up in your prayers.

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.
