Here at DCC, we value journeying together and intentionally connecting with each other to learn how to follow Jesus and demonstrate God’s love to the world. Learning Groups are short-term study groups that provide an opportunity to learn and grow with others. Here are our current Learning Groups (click on title for more information):

Overcome

WHAT: This is a 9-week series that addresses both people afflicted with mental health issues and those supporting someone who has a mental health issues, teaching them skills to deal effectively with the stresses and problems mental health issues pose.

We understand that having a mental health issue may make you feel like you are by yourself. We want to show you that you are not alone and that you can be in community with other people who feel the same way. During our time, we will grow from each other and become closer to God. The hardest part is taking the first step in signing up to be in community. This is a confidential, non judging, and safe place to be yourself. We look forward to seeing how God can work in our lives.

This group is sponsored by My Quiet Cave, a ministry devoted to helping people with mental illness or their families and friends by providing resources, connection, mentorship, group and workshops (see myquietcave.com). All are welcome!

Life of David

WHAT: King David is one of the main characters in the Bible. He is important theologically because God promised him that through him one of his descendants would have an everlasting kingdom, whom we know to be Jesus, the Messiah and our savior. But what about the man David? This study will focus on the life of David, his character and behavior. What we will see in him is a person who loved the Lord deeply, but who was also flawed like we are and who had struggles in life just as we do. Along the way we’ll learn a bit of the history of Israel. Join us for a great time learning to be people who have a heart like David.

WHERE: DCC Wash Park – Downstairs Conference Room
