Dahlgren UMC aspires to make disciples by expressing the love of God both within the walls of the church to equip ourselves for service to the community and to the world beyond. All we have in the way of resources and facilities are gifts from a loving God, and we its stewards.
Those gifts are shared with the community through church-sponsored or -hosted outreach activities like the Christian Preschool, the Little Lambs Bible and Art Time, making the playground available to the community, and hosting the scout troop.
The church, corporately and through the activities of individual members, extends God’s love to the community in many other ways, such as the food chest in the atrium collecting for the county social services, support to the Thurman Brisben, providing meals for school children, and countless caring cards sent, meals delivered, and rides and helping hands lent to those in need.
As a part of a connectional church Dahlgren supports UMC global missions, many of which members of the church participate in as volunteers.
