Welcome

Elkhart Dunlap United Methodist Church is a welcoming and loving congregation that seeks to help everyone grow in their relationship with God and experience Jesus Christ and his power to transform their lives.

With a rich history dating back to 1854, we are known for our music ministry (including a chancel, handbell, and children’s choir as well as a brass ensemble), an active scouting troop, and an annual 20,000 item cookie walk that raises funds for ministry and missions, and an active & growing Preschool.

A core value of the people of DUMC is to be a service oriented community supporting local agencies such as Church Community Services, Salvation Army, Susanna’s Kitchen, Bashor Children’s home, and also the United Methodist Advance Special Mission projects around the world.

We are a community with open hearts and open doors where individuals & families grow in faith and become disciples of Jesus Christ. We would love to meet you and hope you join us soon!
