Programs throughout the year will include concerns of today’s church and society, as well as issues that affect the well-being of women and children.
Spiritually, we focus on ways we can become more spiritual through prayer, works of kindness compassion and charity, on a local, state, and national level.
CDA members donate to charities, administer scholarship programs and strive a “to be helping hands” where there is pain, poverty, sorrow, or sickness.
