Baby On The Way!!!

Due West United Methodist Church in Marietta, GA and the North Georgia Conference announces that a new baby will be born, a new baby church that is! In September of 2008, just nine months from now, Crossroads UMC will begin worship in north Paulding County, GA. Rev. Ken Hagler, Associate at Due West UMC will be leading this new church.

Like any baby, there are a lot of needs that a family faces when a baby is born. In the excitement of the expectation, Due West UMC is hosting a BABY SHOWER on March 2nd after the 11AM services. We’d like to invite you and other groups in your church to be a part of this exciting event in the Kingdom of God.

Wondering just what a new baby church needs?
