Welcome to Dexter United Methodist Church!

Veterans and Soldiers Support

Mission Statement

The mission of the Veterans and Soldiers Advisory group is to recognize, honor and support local veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and the soldiers who are currently serving. We will provide support, resources and activities to the soldiers that reflect our care and concern. Various activities include clothing drives, card showers, Valentines for Vets, visits to the VA Hospital, collecting magazines for the VA clinics, clothing drive for homeless Veterans, recognition dinners for Veterans, Memorial Day flag display in the Memorial Garden, and a video on Dexter UMC deceased Veterans.
