Opportunities for Service

Each of us is a unique creation of God, empowered with gifts--not only our talents and skills, but also our experiences, interests, passions, and even our wounds. Our gifts are a vital part of the web of giftedness God has provided for our ministry together.  These are given to us so that we might minister together as partners in God's work in the world.
We use our gifts in service to God in our families, our vocations, our church, our community.  DLUMC can make use of your service in all the ways shown below, and more! It doesn't always have to be something you've done before--sometimes we are called up to new heights of service! (Just ask the Webmaster.) If you would like to become involved, please let us know.  Information about many of these opportunities can be found on this website.
Please check the areas on the form that you are interested in and submit it to the church office. Your willingness to serve will be communicated to someone who can help you get connected.  It would be wonderful to have you involved!
Please be aware that to volunteer with children you must be a member of DLUMC for 2 years, be willing to submit to a background check, and complete a Safety Training course.
