FOOD DRIVE Mission Project
Our local need for food is never-ending, and DSUMC works to support our area food pantry through donations of non-perishable food items. Collections are received throughout the year and delivered to the Dunn United Ministerial Association Food Pantry (DUMA) Food Pantry at 319 W. Broad Street in Dunn. We have a cabinet inside our courtyard entryway for collections.
We also set aside one Sunday in December as our "White Christmas" celebration. On this Sunday, food is brought to the church in white packaging which is then delivered to the DUMA Food Pantry. Contact person: Hank Bethea.
CARE TEAM Mission Project
Throughout the year, our Care Team visits, sends cards, delivers flowers and reaches out to our Divine Street community. We especially concentrate on those who are homebound or struggling with health. Contact person: Joanne Taylor.
FOOD PANTRY Mission Project
DSUMC volunteers show up twice a month to lend a hand in distributing food items to folks in need. The DUMA Food Pantry is open twice a month (2nd & 4th Tuesdays). Contact person: Hank Bethea.
LUNCH BAGS Mission Project
Often folks stop by DSUMC needing food to get them through the day. On days when the DUMA Food Pantry is closed, we offer a small bag of snack type items with a bottled water. Contact person: Susie Creel.
ANGEL TREE Mission Project
Children at Dunn Elementary School are recommended to us each December, and we work to provide Christmas gifts for each child. From socks to bicycles, anything is possible, and DSUMC wants every child to experience the wonder of Christmas! Contact person: Susie Creel.
JOHNSON BETTER CARE Mission Project
Johnson Better Care Facility is an assisted living facility here in Dunn which offers independent and daily support services. This year at Easter, we will provide gift bags with personal care items and socks. Each year in December, we provide gift bags and Christmas stockings for the residents. Many of our friends here may have limited resources or visitors and we love sharing and visiting! Contact person: Joanne Taylor.
HYGIENE KITS Mission Project
During times of natural disaster, we work to create and deliver hygiene kits. Most recently, we were able to deliver over 200 kits to folks in the Houston area following Hurricane Harvey. Contact person: Beth Gaines.
KNIT WITS Mission Project
When people in our area are struggling with illness or other difficult situations, our team reaches out with a hand-crafted prayer shawl. The comfort these shawls offer is immeasurable as those who receive them know they are loved and prayed for constantly. All levels of knitting and crocheting skills are welcome, and beginners are often mentored in the craft by our resident experts. Contact person: Barbara Bethea.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES Mission Project
At the beginning of each semester, our United Women in Faith group gathers needed school supplies for the children at Dunn Elementary School. A list of needs is provided by the teachers and counselors at the school. Contact person: Joanne Taylor.
CAMPBELL STREET FAIR Community Involvement
At the beginning of each academic school year, DSUMC joins hundreds of vendors and exhibitors at the Campbell University Street Fair in welcoming students back to classes. We greet others, offer a smile and friendly face, hand out goodies, and invite folks to make Divine Street their home-away-from-home church. Go Camels! Contact person: Jim Martin
