Youth Camp Out at Church

Saturday, July 10 to Sunday, July 11
Join Deacon Wes and your church friends as we camp out at the church from Saturday, July 10 at 6:00 p.m. to Sunday, July 11 at 9:30 a.m.

We will set up one of our party tents in the yard next to the parking lot for sleeping. Activities will include a hot dog and hamburger dinner on the grill, campfire with s’mores, games, outdoor movie, and time for fellowship with one another. If the weather is poor, we will turn it into a "lock in" so we will hold the event rain or shine!

Youth will need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and an air mat or cot. Email Deacon Wes at wesley@dgfumc.org for any questions.

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.

Messy Church will be in the Gym this Sunday.  We will start at 11:05 as a whole group with singing, worship, story and other surprises.   Following that short time together, there will be a time for crafts.  There will be no meal time.  Hopefully meals will resume in September.    We will look to conclude by 12:30.    
 
Messy Tweens is back this Sunday.  Deacon Wes will take any 5th and 6th graders to the youth lounge for some tween activities.
