United Methodist Men Dinner - Cancelled But....

For over 25 years the Men’s Ministry at Due West UMC has sponsored an Annual fund raising dinner in December for the children at the Murphy Harpst Children’s Home in Cedartown Georgia. This year we will be unable to host this dinner due to COVID concerns. 

...We Remain Steadfast

The road is uncertain for everyone, but particularly for children and youth who have been living lives full of insecurity and trauma. During this uncertainty, though, one thing remains steadfast, Murphy Harpst’s mission is critically important and can’t be put on hold. That is why we are asking you now to reach deep in your heart and prayerfully consider making a donation to this critical mission. 

How Can You Support?

We will be hosting this online donation page from November 22nd-29th to show the support of the generous members of Due West UMC. During this week you may make a donation here or consider dropping a check in the offering plate or deliver to the ADMIN office at church. All proceeds will be combined and delivered to Murphy Harpst on “Giving Tuesday, Dec 1st” when a matching grant of $15,000 will double the impact of our efforts. Please join us as one body representing the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.
*Be sure to specify you are giving to the UMM Murphy Harpst Fund for online payments.

In Memory of Tom Rudd

The Due West United Methodist Men have a long history of service to Murphy-Harpst; fundraising and many, many work projects. It is impossible to look back on all those work projects and not remember Tom Rudd. Tom was an eager servant, sharing the talents in his hands, and the love in his heart. Tom went to the Lord in September.

His gravestone is not yet in place, however, his wife, Helen, shared the inscription on Tom's grave will be, "Well done my good and faithful servant"; a wonderful epitaph.
