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.

Please be mindful of safe social distancing in our sanctuary. The signs taped to the pews alert us to safe seating. We ask that you and your family sit beginning at the end of that pew WHERE THE SIGN IS POSTED. You will notice that we alternate ends of the pews for social distancing. If there is NO sign on the pew, we ask that you leave that pew vacant. Masks are still mandatory within the sanctuary until people of all ages have the opportunity for vaccination. We have many who can be vaccinated at this time, such as our children and youth, and we want to keep them safe. 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 Savannah Smith To Dilworth
Our summer intern, Savannah Smith, began her work at Dilworth this past Tuesday! Savannah is a rising Junior at Appalachian State University and is in the midst of discerning a call to ministry and service. We are so delighted to be a part of her journey this summer. If you get a chance, please drop by the church and welcome her to Dilworth. Also, you can sign up here with or email Cade to provide lunch for Savannah on one of the lunch days and get to know her that way. She will be serving Sunday through Thursday of each week till the end of July. Let's make this a great summer of affirmation and fun for Savannah!!
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.
