Upcoming Gathering at Diboll FUMC

Mark your calendars. We have a Gathering coming up. May 20th in Diboll at the First United Methodist Church. Board meeting at 2pm, Sponsorship Training at 4pm and the pot luck supper at 5pm. Don’t let that feeling fade away. Keep those hearts on fire. Bring a friend. Remember that anyone can come to the Gatherings. Call someone that has been on a Walk and carpool. A lot of people just don’t want to drive to the Gathering by themselves. Do what Livingston does and borrow your church van. The address is 401 South Hines, Diboll, Tx. Coming from Lufkin, stay on 59 South. At the 3rd traffic light turn right onto N Hines. Before you get to the railroad tracks, turn left staying on Hines Street. Stay on that street and you’ll see the church on your left.   Coming from the South, turn left at first red light coming into Diboll… turn left on Hines St. (just before railroad tracks) and church will be approx 200 yds on left.

We want to see everyone there.

October walk postponed until February 2018

Due to unavailability of leaders and time constraints, it has been approved by the board to postpone October walks until February. This will allow time to prepare for the best walk ever in February.  Please pray for potential leadership and clergy as we enter into team selection.
