Support Groups

Congregational Care Team

DUMC is strengthening its ministry to all members and friends of the church by establishing a Congregational Care Team. These team members will provide prayer, care, and follow-up for situations and concerns that are communicated on the blue prayer cards.
If you would like to become involved in this ministry, please speak with Laurie Lewis. Training is provided and beginning-level computer literacy is necessary.


The DivorceCare support group was created for people who are experiencing separation, divorce, or the end of a long-term relationship.
During the 13 week semester the group explores topics such as loneliness, depression, finances, forgiveness, and moving forward. It is an incredibly helpful program which lets people know that they are not alone in this difficult time. If you or a friend are dealing with divorce, please look into the DivorceCare group. It offers hope and healing at a time when life seems darkest.
This group is coordinated by . 


This support group helps those who are mourning the death of a loved one. Becky Van Dine facilitates this 13 week, video-based program. Participants have found it extremely comforting, and helpful in moving through grief, toward healing.

Prayer Cards

The Congregational Care Team meets weekly to prayerfully address the concerns and joys submitted by the church the previous week. You can find the blue prayer cards at different spots around the church, not just in the sanctuary. Please feel free to take some cards home with you, to complete in advance or to use as you need them. Drop them off to the Church office anytime, and they will be processed by the team at the regular Monday morning prayer meetings, if not before.
If you need more space for your concerns, please feel free to submit more than one card, or to write on the back. The most important thing is to get your message across—we’re not terribly concerned with what it looks like.


Doylestown United Methodist Church maintains a prayer ministry through the Congregational Care Team. Prayer requests may be submitted at any time via the blue prayer cards, which are located in the pew racks as well as different locations around the church. When a request for prayer is sent to Laurie Lewis and the Congregational Care Team they provide prayer support, visitation and long-term follow-up. If you would like to be a part of the prayer ministry, please contact Laurie Lewis or the church office at 215-348-5224 or
Please feel free to invite friends from other churches and the community.
All are welcome!
