10-27-22 Moment for Mission:


DCFS was started by Woodlawn Church in 1999 as a food assistance program for anyone living in the Derby School District.  Our motto is "People coming together to serve others thru Christ."  We now offer two services:  people can get food once a month and we can help with utilities once a year with a limit of $400.
The need for food has increased and we are now serving 60-70 families each month.  We are thankful for the support from the Derby Community and the food drives that have benefited the food pantry.  Last year we helped 125 families with utilities and paid out over $40,000.  The Church Thrift Shop on K-15 contributes $800 each month to help with utility assistance.  DCFS could not exist without the support of this church and this community.
Thank you for helping us help others.


Screen/Media and Tech Volunteers needed for Contemporary Worship

Volunteers are urgently needed for the Contemporary worship service on Sundays. Volunteers would serve once a month, sitting in the tech booth and advancing the screens by computer.  It's as easy as pushing a space bar!  Training is available.   

Stephen Ministers are here to help

If you are in a struggle with anxiety, loss, and/or isolation, you might not know exactly when your understanding and acceptance from this crisis will come.  But, we can rely on our risen Lord to be truly present with it all, even when others can't be. If you need a message of hope and encouragement, call on a Stephen Minister to help you on this journey. A Stephen Minister can help you through the valleys of life to help restore your joy.  Call Kelly Gifford- 316 708 0691 to be matched with a Stephen Minister. 

God’s command that we love one another is as relevant now as it was thousands of years ago, and Stephen Ministry is one way you can show that love. A Stephen Minister training class is starting soon. Contact Roylene Klein at 316-250-0135 to learn more about how you can get involved.
