Lenten Prayer Tree

Dunwoody UMC is ALL IN with our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness! Our emphasis in 2021 is on prayer, and the DUMC Prayer Ministry has dedicated a tree to holding your prayer requests. This tree is just to the right of the Sanctuary main entrance. There is now a bench to the left of the tree for you to sit and pray. There are prayer "ornaments" for you to write your prayer request on and then hang on the tree. These prayer requests will be prayed over by the prayer intercessors each week. We hope that you will take some time during Lent to deepen your prayer time and that this prayer tree will be a welcome addition. We welcome prayers from all people, including all our neighbors.

Join a Lenten Prayer Triad

You are invited to join a Lenten Prayer Triad! This is a great way to get to know two other people in the church and deepen your faith through discussion of the week's sermon and sharing prayer together. You can spend as much time together as you decide, and you can meet over the phone, by Zoom, or however the group decides is best. You will be assigned to a triad, and your group will decide the best time to meet each week. Each triad will meet 6 times, once a week from February 21 - April 3.

Sign up here, or call the church office at 770-394-0675.


The season of Lent is Feb. 17 - April 3. Join us each Sunday in worship for the Lenten sermon series, “Don't Waste the Wasteland,” and for the many services leading up to and during Holy Week. Sign up in advance for weekly outdoor worship and indoor worship, or join us online!

Stay connected during Lent with our Lent-at-Home kits, available beginning Sunday, Feb. 14 from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the Activities Building portico, or outside the church office thereafter. If you need your kit delivered, please call the Church Office at (770) 394-0675, or contact

Small Groups and Studies

“The Walk” by Adam Hamilton – Zoom Study

"The Walk" provides a guide for walking deeper with Christ by exploring the essential steps of worship and prayer, study, serving, giving, sharing our faith and practices from the cross. If you started this study last year and care to resume, we have a record of your payment for the book. For new participants, the book can be purchased through the church for $15 when you register, or you may purchase the book from your favorite bookseller. Register here, or email Susan Kee.

UMW Mission Study: “Finding Peace In An Anxious World”

"Finding Peace in an Anxious World," written by Urban Village Church leaders, explores the use of the book of Proverbs and “The Serenity Prayer” in helping Christians work through anxiety, worry, and fears towards God’s peace. Join Rev. Kathy Brockman as she leads this 3 week study. Please register here, or call the church office at 770-394-0675. If you have questions, please contact Susan Kee.
