Local Missions

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.
Take a moment to see the many ways you can become involved within our church. We would love to have you join us.
GREAT DAY OF SERVICE
Thank you to the many people who came out to be a part of a wonderful Great Day of Service on October 20! Watch here for dates for the next GDS!

LIFECARE

LifeCare Ministry is devoted to helping provide our church family and community with a variety of care outreach.
If you're looking for a local mission volunteer opportunity, our church is looking for more volunteers to help out with Shady Grove Nursing Home! We visit this nursing home the third Sunday of every month to provide drinks, dessert, and Bible Study. There are also opportunities to serve with activities during the week and to bless them during Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays for their big Thanksgiving Feast as well as Secret Santa.
