Property Improvement Program
Property Improvement Program is a partnership of First United Methodist Church, Duncanville and the City of Duncanville. The purpose is to repair the exterior of homes, repair fences, and clean up yards in Duncanville for homeowners who, because of life circumstances, are not able or cannot afford to make the repairs. The dates for this spring’s Property Improvement Program (PIP DAYS) are April 28th, 29th and May 5th, 6th. We will be working at 207 E. Little Street and 358 West Vineyard Street. You can sign up to volunteer in the Narthex of Aldersgate and the Narthex of the Sanctuary this Sunday, March 26th, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Betty at 214-534-3039. You will be blessed many times over by becoming involved in this endeavor. We are commissioned to go out in our community and beyond to share the love of God because He first loved us!
