Update to Church Response to COVID-19 Pandemic - November 11, 2020

Our church community's health and welfare is of great importance to us during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to offer worship at 10:00 a.m. online through Zoom and have suspended in-person worship at this time. Our church staff is working in the building, as needed.

The office phone is answered at 630.968.7120 during our regular office hours from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The building doors will remain locked at all times during the week. 

Church staff can be reached by using email or phone with any questions or needs you may have. If you need to visit the church office, please call first to make an appointment to ensure that a staff member will be available. 

Masks will be required in the building at all times.

Meetings and Activities
No in-person meetings, activities, or gatherings are allowed in the church building at this time without prior approval. All DGFUMC in-person indoor activities and events, remain canceled until further notice.

When possible to return to the building, a few outside groups that have requested meeting space and are approved by the ReTurn Team will once again meet. They are required to monitor their own groups and agree to follow the established health instructions and guidelines established by our Health Team.

Our preschool is holding classes and the staff closely follows the guidelines set forth by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Updates to in-person worship and other gatherings will depend on improvements of cases of COVID-19 in the local area as well as on applicable state and local guidance. As such, restrictions and guidelines may change. We will continue to provide updates by email, on our website, and by mail.

Make a Difference: Join the Virtual CROP Hunger Walk

Sunday, October 18

We will gather with others in our community to fight hunger both here and around the world. Now more than ever people are experiencing food insecurity. Twenty five percent of the proceeds raised go to local food banks and 75% to help our brothers and sisters who live domestically and abroad.

The South DuPage CROP Hunger Walk will be different this year as "We Walk Together - Apart"  on Sunday, October 18. You are encouraged to walk in groups of five or less around your neighborhood, forest preserve, or church as far or as long as you want! We need walkers and sponsors to join us! You can sign up to walk or donate to another walker from our church by clicking here.

We invite you to get a couple of friends or family members together and make a difference while you get some exercise and be the feet of Christ in the world!
