Serving in Our Church & Community

Contact: Mark Hellman - Email Mark

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.

Church Food Pantry

Many families in our community are faced with the very real issue of food insecurity.  For years our church has been on the front lines helping families with this issue by providing bags of shelf- stable and nutritious food through our Food Pantry Ministry.  Each recipient receives two bags of groceries worth approximately $50.00 when sourced at local grocery stores.  This provides a family of 4 with approximately 35 individual meals!  If your Sunday School Class, small group, book club, Scout troop, etc. would like to collect items and build bags to support this vital community-wide mission, please let our mission team know.  Email Mark Hellman with questions.
