Go and Serve in the United States

God has called us to go share his love with others – including right here at home in the United States. First Woodway sends people to serve all through the year – including week long summer mission trips for the entire family and smaller fall trips to serve at the Texas/Mexico border. Come join others at First Woodway and share the GOOD NEWS with those here in the US.
