Community Presence in Danville

February 4, 2015

The Danville United Methodist Church reached 205 children on Halloween night last fall. The event was a part of their effort to be a “friendly presence in the community,” said their pastor, Kathleen Moore.

Halloween has been a popular evening in town, and many trick-or-treaters prowled the streets on that cold and windy night. The church simply provided a place for kids and their families to warm up. They had a lighted pumpkin at the door, but “nothing scary.” Eight members of the church served as hosts for the event.

Danville UMC is “a church God-sized in spirit and small enough to care.” The church plans to hold at least two community events this calendar year as a part of this ongoing outreach. Their website says that they “are growing God’s family by making disciples of Jesus Christ!”

They are aiming to use a variety of communication tools to help them extend warm, personal invitations to the people of the surrounding area, including notices in store windows, free publications in town, and electronic resources. “We strive to be a caring community, open to all persons who are seeking a church home.”
