Sunday Worship – December 17th

Worship

Join us in the Sanctuary for a special worship service on Sunday, December 17th, 2017 at 10:00 AM.  Wilton Congregational Church is proud to present our annual Christmas Pageant:  “The Promise of Christmas.”  Bring your family and friends and enjoy this very special Christmas production!
  Rev. Anne’s Biblical Reflection:

This week’s Advent Gift is Joy.   Like the other gifts of Advent, it is something that God continually offers to us.  Like the others, Joy is a choice that we can make.  You can hear about this gift on Saturday at our last Saturday@5 and you can experience it on Sunday morning at our Christmas Pageant!

Realm Connect is Here!

Earth Ministry

baystateWCC now has a recycling bin for used textiles in the parking lot behind Pilgrim Hall.  Please support the church and the community by placing your unwanted textiles in the box.  This is not like Goodwill, as we will take them in any condition.  These are collected and recycled by Bay States Textiles.  They are either mended and sold to third world countries, turned into wiping cloths, or made into filler material.  This reduces the amount of waste going into our landfills.  They need to be put in plastic bags before putting them in the box.  Click here for a list of acceptable items.

Toiletries Collection

travel-size-toiletriesDo you have travel-size toiletries that you’re willing to donate? Please drop them off in the basket in the lobby by the church office. These items will help clients at Norwalk’s Keystone House.
