Service and Mission
tongues of fire
The Missions program at DUMC has supported several outreach programs this year. Among these are the Backpack Program of the South Anne Arundel Rotary Club and the Breakfast Club of Mt. Zion UMC. The former provides weekend meals for needy children in South County during the school year, while the latter helps to feed many of these same kids during the summer break. Another major beneficiary has been neighboring Union Memorial UMC that is in desperate need of a proper handicapped ramp.
Funding these and other mission efforts is provided primarily by the Tongues of Fire BBQ Ministry team. This group of 30+ holds 5 sales yearly, ever mindful of its tongue in cheek motto, to "Spread the Gospel, one bite at a time".
Both groups are open to all those who love the Lord and believe that we are justified not by faith alone, but by good works for our savior.
