UMC Response to Nepal Earthquake and How You Can Help

United Methodist respond to Nepal EarthquakeMany of you have been asking how our congregation, and the United Methodist Church as a whole, is responding to the devastation caused by the earthquake in Nepal.

For many years, the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church has been in mission with the people of Nepal. This existing relationship positioned UMC to take immediate steps to assist the people of that nation, including providing household and community water filtration units for survivors, and working with United Mission to Nepal, a partner in community-based health and education projects in Nepal for more than 60 years. To read more about these efforts, click here.

Closer to home, the Mission, Justice and Community Work Area of DGFUMC, has approved an immediate emergency gift of $1,000 from our congregation to the United Methodist Committee on Relief’s (UMCOR) Disaster Response in Nepal to support relief efforts.

You can also help with relief efforts. Individual gifts may be sent through UMCOR, using the code Advance #982450. To send a gift electronically, click here.  To donate by check, please make your check payable to Advance GCFA, write the Advance number 982450 on the memo line and mail to:

Youth InTent: Tent Rentals

Youth In TentFor the past thirteen years, our Youth InTent program has served our church and community by renting out tents, tables and chairs for graduation, birthday, anniversary and other summer celebrations, as well as neighborhood block parties, weddings and wedding receptions.

DGFUMC youth take care of delivery, set-up and take-down. In return they receive credit toward mission and choir trips.

Our prices are competitive with commercial vendors and benefit a wonderful program. Without revenue from Heritage Fest parking, our Youth InTent program is the largest fundraiser for our youth program. Help Chapel Choir fund its annual choir tour.

For prices and information please see the Youth InTent Reservation Contract at the link below.  Feel free to contact Don Dunham with any questions.
