Deadline approaching for contributions to Dumas Wesley Toy Store 

One of the most beloved events each year is the Annual Christmas Toy Store at Dumas Wesley Community Center.  The event serves 75 lower income families in surrounding neighborhoods by giving them the opportunity to buy new toys and bikes at a fraction of their retail value.  This year the Toy Store will take place Saturday, December 12th.  We need the help of our United Methodist family and others to provide the toys that will be sold.   Click here for more details on how to participate and/or contribute.  All donations need to arrive at Dumas Wesley by December 9th. More information can be found at

Annual Toy Drive at North Mobile Singspiration

Our next Singspiration will be held at Sunflower UMC on December 13th.  We will be collecting toys for our Annual Christmas Toy Drive.  All toys will be taken to DHR in Chatom for distribution to local families.  Look forward to seeing you there!
