As I am writing this, I am marveling at the annual miracle of the budding of leaves. Just three weeks ago,the tree outside my window was completely bare. And as the days passed, the tiny buds formed, the leaves began to open, and now my window view is filled with green- too many leaves to count.

I see that same new and budding life all over our
church too. There are too many joys to count! This past month we welcomed a wonderful class of new members-14 adults and 11 children! I hope you will join me in warmly welcoming them into our community and making space for them to participate and lead in our church service. I hope you will join me in welcoming: Mark and Holly Cowgill and family, Kaia Erickson and family,
Tim Grzybowski and Lana Fulton and family, Shane and Rebecca Hasse, Bob and Karen Karst, Bill and Jean Livingood, Linda Motzko, Nick and Katherine Thompson and family.
This month I also had the honor of being part of a group of you who decided to be the family for a senior citizen in our community who doesn't have family in the area but who needed the wisdom and decision making help that only a family can provide. What a joy to see the way you love each other and care for each other! A few weeks ago, you may have been in a very special worship service where 8 of our first graders stood up in front of the congregation and with gusto and sincerity recited the words to the Lord's prayer which they have spent the last months learning about in the worship service and in their small group.

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.
