Worship in the Sanctuary Begins

Join us for Worship in the Sanctuary

Based on our region's recent return to Phase 4, we are returning to the sanctuary at 10:00 a.m. for worship with a limited number of people. Please click on the sign-up link to find out if seats are available.

We will continue to hold online Zoom worship at 10:00 a.m. each week. If you are unable to join us, our worship services will continue to be available for viewing on Facebook and our website after the service.

As a faith community who promotes caring ministries and relationships, we are bound to uphold the responsibility to "first do no harm." Our plan to return to the Sanctuary developed by our Return Team and Health Team committees is based on the continued reduced rate of new cases, positivity, deaths, and hospitalizations; and a significant increase in the rate of vaccinations in Illinois. Currently, the NIC Bishop and the CDC suggest we continue to avoid large groups, especially indoors, so we are limiting the number of individuals who may attend in-person worship.

Although vaccine news is hopeful and positive, the next few months will continue to be difficult as new variants of the coronavirus cause additional complications in the health crisis facing our nation. Experts tell us that the biggest coronavirus risk continues to be personal contact, especially indoors. We encourage all to remain cautious and pray for all those impacted by COVID-19.

About the Encore! Concert
Several years ago, the FUMC Four Men's Quartet presented the first benefit concert for Bridge. Thanks to the efforts of Jim Speta, this concert was brought back in its present format, featuring members of our church family and the local community.

After today, the concert link will remain available on the church website at dgfumc.org for a few weeks so that you can visit at your leisure.

Support the Bridge Program at DGFUMC
No ticket purchase will be necessary. There will be an option to donate online in support of our church's Bridge program and the families that we mentor, should you choose to do so. We appreciate your understanding and your generous support of this meaningful mission.

Proceeds help support our efforts to assist Bridge families as we work with them toward self-sufficiency. Bridge Communities is a wonderful cause and our church family has been and continues to be so generous with their financial support. If you would like to support the work of the Bridge Board's efforts, donations are accepted at dgfumc.org/giving.
