Property Improvement Program
This spring there are teams of volunteers from FUMCD, First Christian Church, Trinity Methodist Church, Grace Place Church, Holy Spirit Catholic Church, and a team consisting of employees from the City of Duncanville. There are a total of 103 volunteers participating in PIP DAYS this spring and 49 of that total are from FUMCD! Five Duncanville homeowners will receive help.
On those mornings, we all will meet in the parking lot at 8:00, take a few pictures, have prayer and disperse at 8:30 to go to the properties.
PIP DAYS gives renewed hope to the property owners, pride in their homes and property, and the knowledge that someone cares.
May’s Mission Moment provides an opportunity to continue the amazing works of First United Methodist’s Children’s Ministry. The children will be participating in “The Great Kid Mission” June 29-31st, and doing several service projects to help others in our community.
WOW- these kids are doing great things, and your support will continue this beautiful ministry. Thank you for helping our children grow in faith!
This Sunday is the last Sunday to buy homemade Mother’s Day cards! Stop by the table in the Lobby on Sunday, before or after service. Support Loving Hands Card Ministry!
There are numerous copies of Sunday School / Bible Study materials and motivational books on the shelves in the church office. We are planning to clean out these shelves and were wondering if any of you would have interest in any of these books. Please come by the office during regular business hours (Monday – Thursday 8:30-4:30) if you may be interested. You are welcome to take what you like and keep them for yourselves or store them in your Sunday School classroom. The shelves will be emptied the first week of May.
