Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
How wonderful to worship together in our sanctuary! As we adjust to sharing space again, please be mindful to the needs of those around us.

Out of love & safety for our youngest & most vulnerable, ALL worshipers are to wear masks while in the sanctuary.

As Matthew 7:12 says, "Treat others as you would want to be treated." Thank you for living in Christian love with one another!

Remember Your Church This Summer 
As summer fun and vacation draws us away from town and church, don't forget that our church is still in ministry in the community. We are still open and need your support. Your financial gifts are essential to the ministry and campus of Dilworth Church. Visit our website to make your contributions online or you can drop off your contributions and use other means of giving. Also, worship with us live on Facebook at 10 am even when out of town. Enjoy and find relaxation this summer. Thank you for sustaining the ministries of Dilworth Church through your gifts.

From The WNCC:
On Saturday, August 14, 2021, the southern region of Haiti was hit with a devastating magnitude 7.2 earthquake. All of our partners connected with the Northern Haiti Mission Connection are safe, yet felt the impact from the epicenter located in the south of the country. We ask that our congregations lift the Haitian people in prayer. You can contribute financially to this urgent crisis through UMCOR or the WNCC Mission Engagement Team.

SPARK volunteers - every Sunday at 10:00 am. Have you heard about some of the fun things we've been doing in SPARK Sunday School this summer? Acting, science experiments, art, Bible stories, prayer, and more! Volunteer to be a part of it and help our children build strong foundations of faith. Here's what some of our recent volunteers have said:

"Really glad you asked me to help because I don’t think it’s something I would have actively volunteered for on my own and I ended up really liking it! I really enjoyed the opportunity to help kids learn beyond my own children and had a lot of fun in the process." - Ryan Mills

"I thought it was a very fun and easy way to serve. It was also so heartwarming to see the children’s enthusiasm to learn about God." - Mariel Findlay
