Church reopens, clothing drive gets underway

The Methodist Church in Wardsboro has reopened.

WARDSBORO - The Methodist Church on Main Street has several pieces of news to share with the community.
Starting with some background, the church recently reopened, after being closed due to structural issues. A restoration committee was initiated and, after several inspections, a plan was made to address the first phase of repair. Skilled contractors were hired under the direction of a project manager and this first phase was completed. This historic church was then deemed sound for worship.
Several phases of restoration are planned for the future. Fundraising events and grants are also planned and donations are always welcome. Donations can be sent directly to Wardsboro Methodist Church c/o PO. Box 213, Wardsboro, VT 05355.
Second, the church has released its November and December schedule of events. Sunday services will begin at 9 am. All are welcome to attend. Sunday, November 28, will be the first Sunday of Advent. Communion will be celebrated. Advent services continue each Sunday afterwards until Friday, December 24. The church will hold its Christmas Eve service that day at 5 pm. No worship service will occur on Christmas Day. Regular worship service will begin again Sunday, December 26.
Last, the Wardsboro Yoked Parish will be distributing new and used winter clothing on Monday, December 20, from 6 to 8 pm. Donations of winter clothing items are being gratefully accepted and may be brought to the Methodist Church any day of the week, left inside the front door. Items may include all sizes of winter hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, ear warmers, winter coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, pants, shirts, and socks, as well as blankets, comforters, and quilts.
