WARDSBORO — The historic Methodist Church on Main Street in Wardsboro has 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. Sunday service begins at 9 a.m. All are welcome.

Several phases of restoration are planned for the future. Fund raising events and grants are also planned and donations are always welcome. Donations can be sent directly to Wardsboro Methodist Church, c/o P.O. Box 213, Wardsboro, VT 05355.

Here is the Advent Schedule for the Wardsboro Yoked Parish at the Methodist Church, 122 Main St.:

Sunday, Nov. 28: First Sunday of Advent. Communion will be celebrated.
