People of all ages are invited to the Dining Hall for a 2-hour meal packing event to help stop global hunger. We will pack 10,152 meals (34 cents/meal) in approximately 2 hours. We need a minimum of 50 volunteers. Sign up sheets available in church office or after worship in back of sanctuary.  A simple lunch will be provided! 

This endeavor is a way for DUMC to honor long-time mission worker Martin Carr. Martin has given his time, talent, and resources for Habitat for Humanity, Between Cultures, Volunteers in Mission, and other mission ministries.
