Serving in Our Church & Community
Community Leader: Cathy Snider - Email Cathy
Due West offers many ways to get involved to meet the needs within our church family. Each year we church members gather for our Great Day of Service in which we participate in service throughout the church and within the community. We also have a wonderful LifeCare Ministry who offer support in many areas for families in crisis. Our Stitchin' Sallies uses the art of quilting and other sewing techniques to create lap quilts and other items for families in crisis.
Take a moment to see the many ways you can become involved within our church. We would love to have you join us.
