March Mission Moment and Communion Offering will be for the Covenant Gardens
Covenant Park and Gardens began 9 years ago and houses both private and community beds. Volunteers plant, weed, clean, and harvest the community beds. All excess produce is donated to the Duncanville Outreach Ministry.
Covenant Gardens’ annual work day is March 10th, and everyone is invited!
Progress is once again being made to our church property as the parking area north of the gym is being paved by the company who did the work on Daniel Street. Thanks Frank for making these arrangements at no cost to the church.
Property Improvement Program (PIP DAYS) began in the spring of 2016 as a service partnership between First Methodist Church and the City of Duncanville. The purpose is to repair the exterior of homes and yards of Duncanville Homeowners who cannot make these repairs themselves because of life’s circumstances. In the beginning it was the hope and prayer that other Duncanville churches, businesses, and organizations would join in this endeavor. First Christian Church and Knight’s Hands of the Holy Spirit Catholic Church joined us in 2017 This spring, Grace Place Church and Trinity Methodist Church will also be joining us.
The dates for spring PIP DAYS are April 27th-28th and May 4th-5th. You are invited to volunteer and help give the gift of “We care about you” to some owners in Duncanville. Sign up this Sunday morning in the lobby!
