Welcome to Due West United Methodist Church Recreation Ministry. Our mission is to reach the youth of our community for Christ through athletics. Experiencing the joy of being part of a team, the children are offered a positive, supportive, non-competitive environment in which they can play and learn more about their sport! The teams are coached by carefully selected adults who invest their time, gifts and abilities to bring Christ to the children on the field.

The Recreation Ministry will offer several seasonal programs for children including soccer (indoor & outdoor) and flag football . We also offer camps for children during the summer. Additionally, programs are offered for adults throughout the year, including exercise classes.

The Recreation Ministry needs volunteers in many different capacities. Please Email Joyia if you want to get involved.
