A great looking Sunday morning crowd.....are you in these photos? If not, you should be....join us again next Sunday as the 125th celebration continues!

Sunday evening August 23rd

Wilton Baptist Church welcomed Rev. Greg Sellers and family for the PM worship service on August 23rd. Greg had spoken at Wilton a couple of years ago - we enjoyed his preaching then and last night also!

We praise the Lord for our time together studying the word of God and also for the fellowship afterwards.

Our sincere appreciation goes out to the Sellers' family for being a part of our
125th anniversay celebration!

Sunday Morning Aug 23rd

Wilton welcomed home Debbie Martin who blessed us with her beautiful singing voice.

Dr. Eddie Ruddick (former pastor in the 1960's and again in the 1980's) delivered the message by telling bits and pieces of his time at Wilton. He made us laugh, he boldly professed his faith and was a blessing to us all. Thank you Dr. Ruddick for your service to the Lord.

Just a quick update on how the Lord is blessing us

Hello everyone,

I have just come from the business meeting and decided to write about the blessings that the Lord is bestowing on us right now.. so here goes!

The new sign has been ordered and will be delivered/installed before the finale of the 125th celebration - Special thanks to Building & Grounds Committee for the great job!

The projector has been mounted in the sanctuary ready for power point productions and dvd clips - Special thanks to Jeff Broadhead for all his hard work.

The choir now has microphones installed from the ceiling - soon no more stands in the choir loft.

The new hymnals are ordered and will be here before the celebration is over.

Our former pastors have agreed to come home (so to speak) to help with our celebration.

The building is slowly but surely getting all the honey-do items fixer ups that have been needed for so long - Special thanks to Joyce Sherrer for the painting and to all who worked at the work day recently - what a testimony of fellowship!

The 125th committee is amazing - their endurance and perservance is a sight to behold! Specials thanks to Sheila Hogge for picture taking:Myra Stewart for invitation design and record keeping; Ashley Murdoch for memory book design work; Kelli Slankard for scheduling the former pastors; Kevin Peters for the awesome 125th celebration DVD.

I am sure that I have forgotten something but just look over the list above at all the blessings that we have recieved - what a list just to start! God is SO good all the time - Praise the name of Jesus! To God be the glory!
