Community Wide Thanksgiving Service...Oh My!!!

What do you get when you fill a sanctuary with Wilton Bible Baptist, Mount Olive Baptist and Wilton Baptist Church members? You get a visit from the Holy Spirit - Oh my!!!! Oh what a night!!!!! The choir loft was filled to the brim with beautiful voices all under the direction of Wilton's Ron Foster! The WBC youth drama team was flawless - anointed from on high! The Mt Olive singers were fabulous and the crowd was overjoyed with enthusiasm! Austin Foster brought the house down with his special music despite the microphone problems! Bro. Greg delivered the message saying no more and no less that what the Lord wanted him to. THE COMMUNITY OF WILTON WORSHIPPED!!! God was glorified and everyone in attendance was blessed!

In this season of thanksgiving - may we always remember to thank God from whom ALL our blessings flows! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Night in Bethlehem preparation

Below are just a few shots of the work that goes into designing, building, publicising and preparing for our annual Night in Bethlehem production....Thanks to everyone who is helping with this major outreach event. You will be amazed at how it looks on opening night!

This was last Thursday's work night....

The Wilton Church van....gets name tagged

Well as most you know, Wilton Baptist Church purchased a 15 passenger van last Sept/Oct and we love it!!! It has been on many church functions with the womens, the children, the youth and the men! However, it was a little plain and lacking in the eyecatching department.

That has changed and now the WBC van is lettered both sides and the back - thanks go to our new pastor, Bro. Greg for his excellent work with the lettering. We are so blessed!!!

Choir Rehearsal.. join us!

Wilton Baptist Church is so very fortunate to have Ron Foster (WZZK Southern Gospel Jubliee on early Sunday mornings) as our minister of music. Ron and Kim and their son Austin all sing beautifully. Austin plays the keyboards at every service jointly with Margie Hatcher our pianist. The music at Wilton is mixture of contemporary praise and worship songs along side the beautiful hymns that we have all grown up with. You have to come hear it to believe it!!!

As you can see from the pictures here -we have a great looking group of choir members with wonderful voices and energy! Join us - we would love to have you. We practice every Sunday afternoon at 5:00. Trust me - you will be blessed by it!!!

We are currently working on our Christmas Cantata which will be performed December 20th, 2009 during the AM worship service....Make your plans to join us!!!

Laughing out Loud....

Wilton Baptist Church did a lot of laughing out loud this past Saturday afternoon at our annual fall festival....As Proverbs 17:22 says - "A merry hearts does good, like medicine" then laughing was just what the Great Physician had in mind when some of our Wilton members showed up for the festival. The costumes were magnificent - these pictures speak for themselves.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a huge success - despite the hard work and the uncertain weather - it was a great day to fellowship, make new friends, share the gospel, eat, play, and enjoy the gift of laughter! We serve an awesome God and we thank him for the gifts that He has blessed us with including the ability to laugh and love all in the name of Jesus!
