Meet the Pastor

Pastor Karen is hoping that folks will host "Meet the Pastor" gatherings in their homes over the next month.  

It is super easy; just invite a few folks - maybe church folks who live in your neighborhood - for cookies and hot chocolate or tea.  You can even ask someone to bring the cookies!  

This is a great way for a new pastor to meet folks, and for folks to meet a new pastor.   

If you are interested, please email Karen:

Cooperative Youth Group

Confirmation from the Methodist Camp has been received that we will have use of the Lodge this Saturday for the day.  We will NOT have Youth Group on Sunday, 2/10.  Instead, we will meet on Saturday.  We will not have an overnight.  This is just a daytime event.  


There should be snow for plenty of sledding.  Sleds are at Camp.  I will bring 5 sets of snow shoes, and there are 3 pairs at the Camp.  Youth are invited to bring their own snow shoes or Nordic skis.  Bring warm clothes (hats and gloves) and wear layers.


We will be doing some cooking, foosball playing, and probably our usual games of Sasquatch, Gargoyle, etc.  It should be a very fun day!


We will plan to carpool.  I have a 4Runner with 4 wheel drive that seats 5 and an Acadia with front wheel drive that seats 7.  I will take one of those cars.  Please let me know who will be joining us!  For the Youth riding with me - we will meet at NLUC at noon to be at Camp around 12:45 pm.

Douglas Community UMC Food Pantry Needs


Food Pantry Hours!

Wednesdays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.


Fridays:  2:00 to 4:00 P.M.


Based on the needs of our current clients, we have noticed that some of what we’ve been stocking is not usable because our clients do not have access to kitchen facilities, etc.  They are homeless and are unable to heat or cook food. We have revised our needs lists to reflect these changes, based on their requests.


  • Canned protein: (Tuna, Spam, Chicken, Turkey, salmon, etc. Pouches work well, too.)
  • Canned meals (Beef Stew, Spaghetti, Ravioli, mac and cheese; the pop-top cans work the best)
  • Peanut Butter (small jars)
  • Canned soup
  • Canned Beans
  • Crackers
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruits & applesauce
  • Dry Cereal & Packets of Oatmeal
  • Milk (canned & dry)
  • Ramen noodles
  • Granola Bars
  • Small jars of Mayonnaise (to go with the tuna)
  • Bread

The Southeast Food Bank, where we shop weekly, is very low on food and we will need supplement elsewhere.  Any and all donations of food are appreciated; we cannot accept or distribute food that has expired or food that has been opened or home-canned or preserved.   

If you are unable to shop, monetary donations are accepted, as well.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!
