Dear Friends,
Someone once said, "Autumn is spring all over again, with each leaf a flower." Autumn is also the time DLUMC blossoms with color and energy. I want to lift up a few highlights from this month and encourage you to take part. Check out these wonderful opportunities, including:
Second Annual Block Party on Sunday September 10th from 4:30-6:30pm. This is a great event to invite a friend to attend, with food, fellowship, fun and games for all ages, and a bouncy house for the kids.
Liturgist Training Sunday September 10th at 11:15am. If you would like to serve as a liturgist for our church, this short training session is essential. If you are interested in serving as a liturgist but cannot attend this training, please contact the church office.
TGIW (Thank God It's Wednesday) kicks off again for the school year on Wednesday September 13th with supper at 5:15 and worship at 6:15 and small groups for all ages.
North Star District Breakthrough Renewal Institute September 14-15 at Hubbard United Methodist Church. Eight of our church leaders and I are planning to attend, and Lisa and I will be leading one of the workshops to talk about our Wednesday night ministry. Please keep those who are attending in your prayers.
New Member Class beginning Sunday September 17 at 11:15am-12:30 for four weeks. If you are interested in joining Detroit Lakes United Methodist Church, please contact the church office.
Annual Fall Supper Tuesday September 19th. Each year we serve well over 400 people a delicious meatball dinner with all the trimmings. This event is an amazing display of teamwork--it takes a hundred people helping in various ways to make this possible. One of the most enjoyable events of the year is working together to make this happen! Check out the signup sheets on the door to the fellowship hall to find a place where you can help!
This fall we also are offering new large print Upper Room devotionals. Would you please contact Ellen in the church office (847-4818) and let her know if this is a useful tool for you? Your call will help us determine how many large print versions to order in the future.

Did you know we send out an email each week called Joys of the Journey with updates from the week in our congregational life, upcoming announcements, and prayer concerns? If you have email and are interested in receiving this let us know by contacting the office or indicating on your communication card.


Joining Detroit Lakes United Methodist Church

We welcome your interest in membership, but please don’t feel you must be a member to participate fully at DLUMC. We welcome your involvement even more! You are invited to seek out programs or people that interest you and become actively involved even before you become a member.

Periodically a series of new member orientation sessions are held on Sunday mornings. Discussions center around the structure and work of the church and how you may participate in the life of the church family. Food is often involved as well!!  New member candidates are paired with sponsors from the congregation who attend the session with them and serve to help them get ever more acquainted with the people and opportunities at DLUMC.

For more information about membership, please contact the church office—phone 847-4818 or use the Contact Us link on the website to send email.
