Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
GATHER!
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 :
Joshua 24:14-15
Matthew 25:31-40

Stay After Church on Sunday!! Help Build Set Pieces for Musical
Calling all handy men and women. The Dilworth players need your help to build 6 set pieces for their upcoming musical. The lattice will already be cut so this should be a quick project for a few people with carpentry skills, others who are willing to learn, and the right tools. Please stay after service on Sunday to join in the set-building fun!!
GIVE!
Love your neighbor through gifts of time, talents, and financial gifts.
Room in the Inn
Sign up to help Dilworth this winter as we partner with Roof Above to host folks experiencing homelessness through Room in the Inn. Volunteers are needed to help our church show hospitality to those in our community who need it the most. To be a part of this ministry opportunity, search for a weekend (or two!) that you are available and sign up for the role listed that you would like to help in. Please reach out to Pastor Cade with any questions about this outreach opportunity.
Tutor Request
The pandemic has greatly impacted our CMS students and many are behind. Tutors are needed to help struggling readers. Students are best served when a tutor can meet with them weekly for 30 minutes to an hour.  If you wish to participate but are unsure of the process, you are welcome to shadow Kelly Hofstatter during a tutoring session. Any who are interested should let Madison Rubottom know and also complete the CMS volunteer sign-up form.
