December 18th, Christmas Choir Cantata
Winter’s Grace tells the Christmas story using music, scripture, prayers and poetry. We light our candles of hope, peace, joy and love. We sing our songs of gathering. We read the ancient words of the prophets and cling to every promise. Then Christmas comes sweeping into our fading hope with its jubilant glorias and peaceful carols of love. The darkened mangers of our hearts are transformed into cradles of light, and we surrender our doubts and fears for the shining joys of star-shine and angel-song. Join us at 10:30 a.m. for this annual presentation.

We have made over $1000.00 on our fantastic fundraisers. The fund raisers have not only built some community for both ourselves and the congregation but raised money in the process for our trip this summer to the Red Bird Mission in Kentucky where we will be working in mission with people from very poor neighborhoods. We hope to bring the skills and the experience home to people closer where we live!
Thanksgiving At The Food Pantry!
During thanksgiving week, Wharton UCC gave away food and gift certificates for over 51 Wharton Families. They expect to do it again during Christmas week.
Bilingual Regional Ministries
Around 70 persons participated in a region wide bilingual thanksgiving service – this is part of a region wide initiative called Building Bridges. That initiative is set to include trainings for leaders who will continue to help us build culturally competent and just relationship foundations for discipleship, Hope Centers which will house mission with the Hispanic/Latino communities, a bilingual regional Vacation Bible Camp the last week in August 2017 AND participation in other celebrative moments.
