June 1972 DoveTales Headline METHODIST TO JOIN DOVE!

"DOVE is happy to announce that the central group of the Decatur District of the United Methodist Church voted that their churches should have the opportunity to join DOVE.


Letters have been sent to all of these churches detailing what DOVE is about.  Each congregation will make its own decision about joining.


As most of you are probably aware, DOVE originally stood for DISCIPLES ON VOLUNTEER ENLISTMENT.  Today, DOVE represents Christian people helping others.


We are looking forward to having our Methodist brothers and sisters join us in the Reconciliation effort!"
Ray Batman, Coordinator
(DoveTales is the newsletter of Dove, Inc.)


Today, the list of congregations is long and there are many denominations represented across central Illinois.  Next Thursday, (April 21) Dove will host its Annual Meeting where these congregations are encouraged to come, share, learn and to elect Dove's Board of Directors. 


If you are in a congregation seeking to see if Dove is a good fit for your outreach mission work and to encouraging volunteering, please contact us to learn more.

“have you talked to a trained domestic violence advocate?"

Have you ever had a victim of domestic violence try and open-up to you about their abuse and you not know what to say or how to handle it?...
