Follow Jesus WITH us!
Grow. Serve. Invite.
The DRUMC journey began with a gathering of people from five congregations who chose to come together as one new church to do a NEW thing. Our previous paths were not leading to a good place, and God called us to this journey and we said YES! This means each congregation either has sold their previous locations. We worship together in a new temporary location while we renovate our new location on Beech Daly in Taylor. We are learning how to be God’s people a new in ways.

Learn and Grow WITH Us!
GROW. SERVE. INVITE!
We all tend to place ourselves first. However, we are seeking to love and serve God in action by serving others. We are learning what being God’s people looks like in our daily lives and we want to live this out in action so that God’s love can be experienced by others.

DRUMC: Preparing for our next steps
With July comes our FOURTH birthday. Can you believe it’s been FOUR years? For some the time seems like it’s moved quickly, and for others too slowly.
The year 2016 was important for us as we found a permanent location. This is years quicker than other church plants. The blessing of a new location brought challenges, as the building was incomplete. We are now in full swing of renovations, watching eagerly as water is being plumbed to the nursery/toddler areas as well as into the warming kitchen. We are seeing narrow hallways widen and doors recessed so they don’t open into the narrow hallways. Our entryway will soon be crafted.
Our promise date is September 1. We hope to be in the building around that date, but, as with all things construction, we hold that hopefully but loosely. We envision the first month of occupancy as a time to get acquainted with our new building and adjust to our new digs. This is critical especially for our worship, children and hospitality: the three key areas that are
ESSENTIAL to the long-term functioning of any church. Please consider serving
in one or more of these areas. This means our Grand Opening is planned for
October 8. Plan for a BIG party that Sunday as we celebrate all that God has
done in our midst. God has indeed been faithful as we have stepped into new
methods of doing church.
Please pray that by God’s grace we can BE SERVANTS in our new
DOWNRIVER UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
We desire to grow in our relationship with Jesus and to put into action all that it means to be faithful disciples of Jesus. We have not arrived yet, and we are not perfect, but we strive to evaluate where we are and to take the NEXT STEP toward fully embracing everything it means to be God’s people.
Missed a Sunday or want to listen to past sermon messages again? We have them here all for you!
