Share Our Skills (S.O.S.)

Are you looking for a new way to get involved at church?

S.O.S. - Share Our Skills meets on the THIRD Saturday of each month to tackle fix-it projects around the church. The group meets at 8:30 a.m. for coffee and then works from 9:00 to Noon.

Only have an hour that day? No problem, just stop in and stay as long as you can. Many hands make light work.

This Sunday, September 12 is our next Messy Church at First United Methodist Church of Downers Grove. We will have a special outdoor messy church in Fishel Park (just north of the church parking lot).  It will start around 11:00 AM and will include a few simple outdoor crafts, a story, and a picnic lunch. We will start with the story about 11:15 and look to eat at about noon. 
 
For the lunch you can bring you own food or you can fill out this online form to order Jimmy Johns.  Don't forget a blanket or chairs to sit on for the picnic lunch.
