ONGOING OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES

The apostles Peter and Paul teach us...

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace." - 1 Peter 4:10

"For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function,  so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them." - Romans 12:4-6a

Through the grace of our Lord, we strive to fulfill these teachings to serve Jesus and one another. We all have unique gifts, talents, and strengths, and we’re always looking for those willing to use theirs in service of our Lord. We have many teams and committees to become involved in at DUMC!

Youth Mentor Opportunities

- We are always looking for people who are passionate about making a difference in students lives. And get this, you don’t have to be able to teach Leviticus to make a difference. Do you like music? Do you watch TV? Do you like sports? Do you have a facebook? Do you want to be a better person? So do all of our students and what they need is mentors that they can look up too. Anyone interested in helping out, feel free to contact our Director of Youth Ministries Phillip Doty anytime phillip@dumc.org.
