Introducing the Church of the Dunes App for Smartphones and Tablets!
Is there a way to listen to or watch the sermon you missed? Where can you find the latest copy of the Dunes Digest? What is the name of that catchy hymn from worship last Sunday? Is your Sunday School class meeting today?
Now you can get answers to all these questions, and more, in one place with the new Church of the Dunes smartphone and tablet App! Plus, if you’re on Facebook or Twitter, you can follow all our posts and Tweets right from the App (Yes, @UMCDunesChurch is now on Twitter!)
Thanks to the generous donation of time, talent, gifts, service and witness, Pete Hicks has created a special church APP just for us – and now it’s available at no charge from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Amazon App Store, and Windows Phone Store!
Install the App
Search your smartphone/tablet app store for “UMC Dunes” or scan the QR Code, pictured left, to download the App now.
