Disciple Bible Study

Next fall we will be offering The Disciple Bible Study. We will offer the class on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-11:00 am, and a slightly shorter version of the study on Wednesday nights from 7:15-8:30 pm. Disciple is an overview of the whole Bible. Participants have their own study guide with daily readings, and the weekly class includes video lectures from outstanding scholars.

If you plan on being part of that class, please sign up in Fellowship Hall or contact the church office so we know if there is interest in the morning class. This will be wonderful study and we hope to have many of you participate.

Our Summer youth retreats are fast approaching!

Interested teens and parents should sign up immediately. Please see our Youth Director, Michael Walton during Sunday service or email DunnsCCTeenTeam@gmail.com for additional details.

The high school members of our Teen Team have begun a community collaborative program with students and student leaders from Juanita Sanchez High School in Providence. The group’s initial meeting has taken place at DCCCP. Please keep this group in your thoughts and look out for upcoming projects and initiatives!

Our youth group has a mission statement! We felt it important to capture the essence of our group in a statement and collectively decided on this: “The DCCCP Teen Team is a youth group geared towards acceptance, inspiration and fun—serving God, our community, and each other.”

Worship Services available on CD

Preach the wordThe Deacons are organizing a ministry for those who are not able to be with us for worship on Sunday mornings. We will make a CD recording of our Sunday morning worship service and then either deliver it or mail it to those unable to attend. We are already receiving names of those who want to receive the recording.

Please spread the word about this, as we believe this can be a very meaningful way to strengthen our family of faith by sharing God’s love and reaching out. Contact the church office with names of those who might welcome these weekly recordings.

We are grateful to our new Deacon Bob Bonafede who is spearheading this ministry.
