Smart Lunch, Smart Kid

Decatur First and Action Ministries are working together this summer to feed kids who count on free or reduced priced lunches at school. We’ll pack lunches in the DFUMC Fellowship Hall the week of July 1-5. We need volunteers each weekday morning to deliver the sandwiches. Those who deliver lunches get a Free DFUMC Volunteer T-shirt! Click HERE for Sign-Up Genius. This is a very kid-friendly project, but be aware we’ll be making sandwiches using peanut butter. For more info, email Amy Jackson at


Help a Neighbor

If you are cleaning out your kid’s bookshelves this summer, please consider bringing your books to DFUMC! We’ve got several opportunities to share books with the local kids we will serve this summer. You can leave books for babies through teens in the crate outside room 203 (Janice’s office) and we’ll take care of getting them into the hands of local kids. If you have questions, email Janice Yates at
