♥ Vacation Bible School is August 24th – 28th with dinner being served at 5:00 at DUMC and VBS starting at 6 at Dunbar-First Presbyterian.

 

♥ TEACHERS and SERVICE PERSONNEL for our schools…

Save the Date of August 6th at 6PM, Dunbar UMC will be hosting the Blessing of the Teachers. There will be door prizes given away and a special message for those with whom we are entrusting our children.

♥ Flood relief efforts are under way.  Contact the church office or Pastor Okey if you wish to donate your time and/or money.  Donations are asked to be given to the purchasing of school supplies for the approximately 8000 students affected by the recent flooding in our area.  If you care to purchase supplies, please read the note below and please have the supplies to the church by August 31st.

  • There are approximately 8,000 children in Clay, Greenbrier, Kanawha and Nicholas counties who have been impacted by the recent flooding. There were more than 30 school facilities that were damaged. We have been in contact with Beverly Kingery of WV Board of Education, who is the project coordinator for the Back To School Supply Flood Relief Project. A company from the northern panhandle is donating all of the backpacks. So, we have shifted our focus to school supplies to fill the backpacks. Below is a list of suggested supplies. It is anticipated that there will not be as many binders as needed, so you may want to consider getting some of those. Supplies that are donated will be taken to the distribution site to be included in the backpacks. The distribution site is the former 84 Lumber warehouse in Logan. On August 3 – 5, from 10 AM – 6 PM, volunteers will package the supplies in the backpacks, to be distributed to the schools as school begins. If you want to participate in packaging the supplies, go to wvde.state.wv.us/schoolsupplies/ website for more information. Please bring your school supplies for donation to the church Narthex any time between now and the end of July.
