Neighbors Helping Neighbors - Special S.O.S.

We once again have a unique opportunity to join together for a special one-day off-site S.O.S. mission trip on Saturday, October 20 to Berry United Methodist Church in Chicago.

This will be the third year that volunteers from DGFUMC will work with Berry UMC members doing landscaping, painting, electrical, small carpentry, and other hands-on projects. This has been a rewarding experience supported jointly by the DGFUMC Board of Trustees and Missions, Justice, and Community Work Area.

Possible jobs this time include:

  • painting projects
  • replacing cabinets
  • addressing some plumbing issues,
  • landscaping and outdoor clean-up
  • several other miscellaneous projects

Located in the vibrant and diverse Lincoln Square community, Berry UMC is a struggling urban church which has many maintenance and repair needs.

Everyone is invited to participate. Bring your family and friends or come by yourself. We will meet at DGFUMC at 8:00 a.m. and carpool to Chicago. We will plan on returning by 4:00 p.m.

Contact Don Dunham at  if you are able to attend or want more information. Some painting supplies, tools, and other materials may be needed.
