Hospital Visitations: If you are admitted to the hospital be sure to inform them that you would like Pastor Pagotto notified.  Dinkey Memorial Church's code number is 370.  By giving the hospital that number they should have all the information on file to contact the church office.

Lay Eucharistic Ministry: Vising homebound members of the congregation and sharing communion with them is an extremely rewarding ministry.  By taking a few hours a month to visit and spend some time with a homebound member of the congregation you are making yourself a conduit for God's love helping keep that person connected with his/her church family.  If you are interested in participating in this task or just want to find our more information, please speak with Pastor Tony.  Perhaps you can even accompany him or one of the other ministers on a visit.

Spring Clean Up will be held Thursday, May 23rd beginning at 8 am.  If you can donate an hour or two of your time to help it would be greatly appreciated.
