A Way Forward Study

This February, United Methodists from all over the world will gather in St. Louis, MO, for a special session of general conference. They will vote on a structure and plan for the United Methodist Church moving forward, especially in regards to inclusion of the LGBTQ community. Want to learn more about what this means?

Pastor Anna will be leading a four-week study covering the history of legislation and attitudes towards the LGBT community in the United Methodist Church; the plans that will be presented at General Conference; and information about what our Book of Discipline currently says.

We hope you can join us for this study! Join us for one week or all four starting on January 27 at 12:30 p.m. in Room 213.

Wednesday Women's Bible Study

The Wednesday Women's Bible Study will be reading Short Stories by Jesus:  The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi by Amy Jill-Levine this winter. This is an exploration of the historical background and spiritual meaning of Jesus' parables by one of the foremost Jewish biblical scholars, who visited our church to give a series of lectures in 2009.

The group is facilitated by Pastor Anna, Maggie Roth, and Leah Ostwald. Books are available at the meeting. Can't make it every week? Drop-ins are welcome. Childcare is provided. Cost of the book is $14 and copies are available in the church office or at the Wednesday meeting.

Hearing Loop System Available on the Main Floor of the Sanctuary

DGFUMC is pleased to provide the Hearing Loop System for use on the main floor of the Sanctuary.

A hearing loop is a wire that circles a room and is connected to a sound system. The loop transmits the sound electromagnetically. The electromagnetic signal is then picked up by the t-coil in a hearing aid or cochlear implant.

Users with a t-coil in their hearing aid can now listen to the service directly through their hearing aids. Please check with your hearing care professional to see if your hearing aid is equipped with a t-coil and properly adjusted. Non-hearing aid users can pick-up a headset to use at the sound board.

To learn more about the Hearing Loop System, please see the flyer below..
