Our 2024 Stewardship Campaign has officially started!

Filling out your pledge card helps our church budget for the upcoming year. We know how much we can donate to the amazing charities and volunteer organizations in Wilson that help those in need, how much we can gift to our incredible youth group so they can continue to go on Mission trips, weekend retreats, and fellowship together on Sunday nights, know how much we can support our active Children's program and Vacation Bible School, how we can support our Chancel Choir and Praise Band, and so much more! 

Complete your pledge card by Nov. 12 by clicking the link below.

Romans 8:38-39


For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels not demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


In my life  there have been many moments of uncertainty and doubt.  Emily and I moved back to Wilson as a young couple starting our lives together and I wasn't sure if we would be able to make this community our home. Later we became parents and I recall driving back from the hospital when both Maggie & William were born being fearful of the new responsibility in our lives. Since that time there have been career changes, new starts, sicknesses, and loss...not to mention the seeming chaos that is all around us in this world.  


Through all of this, there have been things that I knew I could always count on: Jesus who I can tell you never stops working on me, this Church which has given me a home and refuge, and very importantly a strong church family that supports us at every turn. None of us know what the future holds, but we do know the good work of this Church.  We all have stories of how it has supported, nurtured, and strengthened us.  This Church has been here for our community and our families for more than 100 years, and we are now the stewards responsible for making sure it is here for hundreds more.


This Sunday is  stewardship Sunday, our pledge packets will be available in the courtyard between services. Please help us by continuing to pray for, serve, and sustain our Church.
