Honor & Remember Loved Ones This Christmas with a Lights of Hope Luminary

Lighting the World

Waretown United Methodist Church LOVES being Waretown’s neighborhood church! If you’re ‘from around here’ you would be hard-pressed to go to one of our church gatherings without knowing someone from somewhere in town. Whether its a friend, family member, scout leader, coach, co-worker, business owner, or someone else EVERYONE knows someone at the Waretown UMC. We are ALWAYS loving and serving our friends and neighbors, and we are ALWAYS a ‘community hub’ where we engage people for a Jesus lifestyle to serve the world in faith, hope, and love! And, we’ve been doing it since 1848!

We open our doors weekly to support groups like AA  and Al-Anon, civic groups like Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, fitness groups, and deaf groups just to name a few.  We partner with town government, county government, local business, other non-profit organizations, and other faith communities all to help build the strongest community of friends and neighbors possible.

It is a privilege for us to freely love and serve our friends and neighbors. And we mean FREELY. None of our initiatives are provided at a cost to those who receive them. The generosity of our church members and friends make our community services possible.

If you have been touched by the Waretown United Methodist Church, or you are inspired by our mission, consider making a financial gift this season. Now until December 20th, we have opened our ‘Lights of Hope’ campaign which raises gifts to help us innovate new projects and improve our current services throughout the year in Waretown and beyond. Your generous gifts will be reflected in a Luminary Display on our Christmas Eve. You may even choose to make a gift in honor or memory of a loved one, and we will put their name on the luminary. Every $10 donated will light 1 luminary.

  • $10 gift will light 1 luminary
  • $50 gift will light 5 luminaries
  • $100 gift will light 10 luminaries
  • Or make a larger gift and we will be sure to light enough luminaries (1 for every $10)

You can send a check to the church with ’Lights of Hope’  in the memo line (along with the name of a loved one you are honoring if you choose to), or you can make a gift online safely and securely by going to our website and clicking DONATE. 

AND NEW THIS YEAR YOU CAN DECORATE YOUR OWN LUMINARY BAG! GREAT FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES. JUST DONATE AT OUR LIGHTS OF HOPE TABLE DURING SUNDAY WORSHIP AND TAKE YOUR BAGS HOME TO DECORATE

Help us light 500 luminaries! That’s $5000! Then come by the church on Christmas Eve and see marvelous display of beautiful Lights of Hope!
