We are now only two weeks away from Easter. You are invited to join us for our Holy Week and Easter services, beginning this coming Sunday, April 14 for our Palm/Passion Sunday Service. We will celebrate Palm Sunday with the reading of the story of Jesus riding into Jerusalem as folks waved palm branches and we will wave our palms, as well. Then we will participate in a dramatic reading of the Passion narrative as we look toward Jesus' last supper with his disciples and his crucifixion on Good Friday.
On Thursday, April 18, we will have a Maundy Thursday service with the service of Holy Communion and the Service of the Tenebrae and the reading of the Seven Last Words of Jesus. Then, on Easter Sunday, we will celebrate Jesus' resurrection in our Glorious Easter Service.

UPDATE: We are now in the second half of Phase Three of our Historic Restoration Project. We now have a handicapped entrance in the front of the building so that we are not walking into the building on frozen stones and have completed payment for the ramp. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported our Historic Restoration project to date. We could not have done it without your help. As a result of your support we have been able to completely repair the back wall (with the exception of one small area - see below) so that we will have no more worries re: water infiltration into the foundation. We also have a new handicapped entrance and bathroom. There is still a need to finish the entrance, floor, and kitchen and we will be working on that in the months to come.
The second half of Phase Three is the closing in of a small space on the back wall near the furnace which has now been started. We need to complete this part of the project prior to the snow melting, so time is of the essence. We need about $3,000 to complete this phase. If you would like to support this part of the project, you can send a check made out to the WUMC to PO Box 94, Wolcott, VT 05680 or go to our website: www.wolcottvtumc.org and click on the "Giving" tab.
Week 26 saw the completion on our handicapped bathroom! We now have a fully functional bathroom once again - much larger and more pleasant than our previous one.
Week 23 ended with more plumbing work being completed on our handicapped bathroom. An additional wall needed to be added to accommodate the required grab bars, so we will now also have a small closet in the bathroom, as well. And the door also needed to be moved. We have received a number of donations in memory of Linda Clark, who died very unexpectedly on August 6 and who was one of our most active members and an avid supporter of the historic restoration project.
Week 18 of our historic restoration project saw work beginning on our handicapped bathroom. The framing of the room has been completed. We now need to choose flooring for the bathroom before we can move forward. It is our current goal to be able to install the bathroom prior to winter. We are presently about $6,000 short of having enough funds to meet this goal.
Week 17 saw the pouring of the concrete slab, completing Phase One. Our next step is to finish raising funds for our handicapped bathroom. Many thanks again for all of you who have supported our Historic Restoration Project.
