Messy Church

Messy Church is a new kind of service on the second Sunday of the month for parents and children to share. There will be a time to make crafts as a family, a short (and lively) time of gathering, and a family friendly lunch. This time will be about building community along with thinking about that greater power that is creator and love of all. It takes place in the church gym. Please register in advance so that we can prepare food and supplies.

DGFUMC Summer Camp 2019 - Peace Works

DGFUMC Summer Camp 2019 - Peace Works

Peace is a prayer for some and a life’s work for others. It’s a blessing we share with others and a longing within each of our hearts. Scripture is filled with the stories of peace and justice and camp is the perfect place to share them. Peace isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth the effort, because we know that peace works! Peace Works, our summer camp curriculum resource from InsideOut, offers a fun, enriching, spiritual, and biblically-based camp experience.

DGFUMC is offering this summer camp experience for children and youth from 2nd to 9th grade at the Wesley Woods Conference and Retreat Center in Williams Bay, WI from June 24-28. The grade listed is the grade the student will be entering in the fall of 2019.

Camp lasts only one week - but what campers take home can last a lifetime.

Registration for Summer Camp begins March 1 for DGFUMC members and April 1 for non-members.

Registration deadline: June 1.

A $50 deposit is due at the time of registration with payment in full due by June 24.

Space is limited, so register early!
