Annual Pledge Drive

We are into the third month of our annual Pledge Drive!  There are Pledge Packets at the end of the pews and we would like you to take the time to prayerfully consider what you intend to do for our Douglas Community United Methodist Church next year.  Remember, it is not just about the money. The money is necessary but in the United Methodist tradition, we advocate discipleship through presence, prayers, gifts, and witness.

Thank you in advance for your radical generosity!

others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven.”

Cooperative Youth Group

Our Cooperative Youth Group continues to meet on Sundays at 5:15 pm at Northern Light United Church and explore Scriptural parallels in the Harry Potter movie series.  Themes include, Good Vs Evil, Choices and Free Will, and the Nature of Humanity.  The youth taught me that despite the characteristics of the four houses in the film series, the human characters are more complex.  We drew parallels with groups in the Bible, such as the Pharisees and Sadducees. 

We have shared delicious meals, fellowship and delightful insights into our faith.  We are grateful for the meals provided by parents and members of the congregation.  Good food makes our time together even richer!

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!
