Come be a part of our group! We have a few different opportunities available for you to join in and serve the Messiah. We are growing and excited about what HaShem (God) is doing. He has sustained us with His Mighty Out-stretched Arm and look forward to the opportunities to come!
Mats Of Mercy
Dothan Messianic Fellowship is excited to announce a ministry opportunity for all ages. We have discovered that there is an increasing number of homeless in our city, enough that our local shelter has an overflow. It has come to our attention that there are actually a couple of “tent cities” in our community where many of them reside. Ms. Lucy Peters found a way for us to minister to them by making mats that can be used to sit or sleep on. They are made out of plastic grocery bags. When completed they form a barrier from the ground and are soft and cushiony. This is such a wonderful way to let our homeless know that they are not forgotten and that the Father loves them.
Our first meeting will be held on Sunday October 15th at 1:00pm. This will be a teaching day to show those who are interested how to actually make the mats. Please bring sharp scissors. Our goal is to have as much participation as possible! If you don’t want to make the mats, you might be willing to help cut bags, or make the “plarn” (plastic yarn). If these don’t interest you, we need everyone possible to volunteer in saving plastic bags for us! We will have two boxes designated for drop off, one in the Fellowship hall and one in the foyer of the sanctuary.
For those who would like to cut bags and or make mats, we will meet on the first and third Sunday of every month at Karen's house 1:00pm. We hope you will come and join us! If you have any questions, please contact us using the link below.
Our dance team currently has five members. We lift up praise to Hashem through traditional Jewish dancing and flags.
Our team is open to any and everyone who would like to Praise His Name through dance. Regardless of experience, gender or age!
We would love to have you join us!
Also, If you would like us to come and visit with your Church, Bible Study or group, we would be glad to teach a few steps or a dance. You can contact us by clicking the button and sending an email.
We are thrilled to announce the start of our men's/young men's group through DMF. Inspired by King David's mighty men (the gibborim), this ministry will be geared towards training and discipling men of all ages to live up to their manly role as provider and priest of their home. The Gibborim, led by Adrian Barajas, will meet the first Sunday of every month and, after a manly breakfast and time of prayer, will use hands-on techniques to learn basic 'man skills' such as auto mechanics, personal finance, self-defense, home repair, bushcraft and many many more topics. This is open to men of all ages.
Yeshua said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
At Dothan Messianic Fellowship, we place a lot of value in the training and discipling of kids in the gospel of Yeshua and the Torah. Each week, we welcome all kids potty trained to 9 years of age into our interactive, story-based class. In our weekly Kingdom Kids classes, we teach them about life and miracles of Yeshua the Messiah using the Action Bible. We do our best to prepare them for a life spent 'set apart' for their Creator and encourage them to hold fast to the testimony of our Redeemer.
We use a rotation of teachers from within the congregation to teach and disciple our Kingdom Kids. As a parent, you are always welcome to sit in and learn as well!
Death is a reality of this fallen world. When living in community with many families, it is inevitable that we come face to face with death or someone who is mourning. 'Chuvra' and 'kadisha' are two Hebrew words meaning 'holy society'. At DMF, we believe that accompanying someone through the process of bodily death and seeing to it that loved ones receive proper support and comfort is of utmost importance and one of the best ways to show selfless love. Just like the three ladies saw to it that Yeshua received an honorable burial, so too our Chuvra Kadisha honors those who are in a time of loss by serving as liaison between the mourning and the broader community.
In summary, the Chuvra's main job in one word might be "comfort". If you have a gift for comforting those in loss and would like to use your gift in our community, please see one of our Elders for more information on how you can get involved.
