The Caring Connection Callers Ministry keep our church family connected by phone, email, visits, and flower delivery. They are hosting an appreciation lunch and a brief training/info session on August 18 at 11:15 a.m. in Chapel Hall. Callers usually meet for a brief devotional and send off every 4 - 6 weeks to make "connections" - visits with our homebound church family.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you to become a part of this ministry which connects the "callers" to our DGFUMC family in a variety of ways — visits, phone calls, flower delivery, baby baskets, cards, and more. We have heard that this ministry is very much appreciated by both the giver and the receiver.

Please consider joining this ministry as a way to care for and connect with our church family. If you are interested in joining this ministry or know someone who would appreciate a visit, please contact the church office at 630.968.7120. Or, if you know of members who would like to receive a connection, please contact Rosie Roose or Pastor Anna.

For more information about Caring Callers or the training, please contact Rosie Roose at 630.204.1565 or email trroose@aol.com.
