Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
Here are the ways we worship together.

How wonderful to worship together in our sanctuary! 
Let us be mindful to the needs of those around us.

Out of love & safety for our youngest & most vulnerable, and due to the rise in Covid-19 cases,
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!

Worship Schedule
10am in the Sanctuary or on Facebook Live.

This week’s scripture lesson is :
Luke 10:25-37

Love your neighbor through gifts of time, talents, and financial gifts.
Summer time was fun and ministry was in full swing for the church. Financial giving, however, suffered as many of you vacationed. We 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. Thank you for sustaining the ministries of Dilworth Church through your gifts.  
Habitat for Humanity
SIX more volunteers are needed to help build alongside homeowner-to-be, Jerton Dixon on DUMC’s Habitat for Humanity host date next Saturday, October 16! Sign up here TODAY, search group number 1686, and select Charlotte Church Partners Volunteer Teams to volunteer on this date or any other build date. Reach out to Jennifer Meier (jwmeier7@gmail.com) and Meredeth Murr (mer.murr@gmail.com) for more information.
Worship Committee Support
Folks have been expressing the desire to return to our two distinct worship services of the 11am Traditional and our 9am Loft. With that in mind, the Worship Committee is reaching out for needed support. This group serves as the pivotal committee for Dilworth UMC. Worship is what brings us together ever Sunday. It allows us to hear God's word in unity, to glorify God in praise and song in one voice, to participate in the spiritual upbringing of new babies, children, youth, to celebrate the birth, life and death of Jesus together, and so much more. Please consider being a part of this important committee. The time commitment is minimal if we have a good core group. But we need more help and team support before considering moving back into the two distinct styles of worship. If YOU are interested, please contact Allyson Utter (allyutter@yahoo.com), Jennifer Snelson (jbsnelson12@gmail.com) or Pastor Michelle. We would LOVE to have you on board and make use of your gifts and service!
