IgniteThe DGFUMC youth group is called Ignite - we aim to be the spark that starts the spiritual fire. Our hope is that being a member of Ignite will change kids' lives and move them to help change the lives of their friends. The purpose of the United Methodist Church is to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Ignite will do that by building community through fun, fellowship and service.
