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):

Mark Study

WHAT: Mark is the gospel of immediacy. There’s no messing around with the birth of Jesus, instead Mark jumps right in to his baptism and ministry. We will go through the book chapter by chapter and sometimes story by story looking for application for our lives today. This will be a Bible study that will deal with geography, politics—of the time of Christ—empire, class; and we will try to answer the quip, “what would Jesus do” and see if we might be able to follow suit in our daily lives. Some might bring their kids, but we have no babysitting. Come join us.

WHERE: Littleton

WHEN: Wednesdays; 7:00-8:30 pm; beginning November 7th

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.

About the facilitator: Celeste Linn is a counseling student at Colorado Christian University who is passionate about Jesus and His people. She values community and sees great benefit in seeking growth together, whether that be in a counseling, church, or informal setting.

WHERE: TBD

WHEN: Overcome has been postponed until January 2019

Prologue

WHAT: Prologue is an on-ramp experience for anyone interested in exploring how their spiritual and religious past and present merge with Denver Community Church’s vision for being a faith community. It is an opportunity to explore the context and background of the story of this faith community known as DCC,  as well as dig deeper into understanding your own story. Through discussion and interaction, you will have the opportunity to better discern how your spiritual past, present, and future fits into the spiritual, theological, and communal ethos and practices of the DCC community. Prologue is also an excellent time to connect with others at DCC, including some of our pastoral staff and our Lead Pastor, Michael Hidalgo. We are convinced that people begin to form a clearer picture of how they fit into community when they get to know others, ask questions and engage in meaningful conversations about life, God, relationships, faith and who we are as the church. If you find yourself intrigued by the possibilities, Prologue could be for you!

20s Connect

WHAT: A chance to meet with other post-college 20-somethings to explore life and faith together. Why? Because your 20’s matter.  It can be difficult to connect with others in significant ways,  so this will be a space to connect more deeply in community, grow in knowing who you are and your unique calling, and to consider what God has for you in your faith community and beyond. At each gathering we will share a meal together, hear from a speaker on a topic and then break into small groups to discuss and go deeper.  Each small group will be paired with mentors from DCC.

COST: $60 for the 7 weeks. This goes toward dinner and materials needed.

30s Journey

WHAT: Gather with other 30-somethings to explore life and faith together. Back by popular demand, the 30’s Journey is a space to connect more deeply in community, grow in knowing who you are, and to consider what it means to follow Jesus in real life.

It has been said that the most important single ingredient in the formulas of success and happiness is knowing how to get along with people. So, we’ll delve into what it means to have great relationships: friends, family, dating, God, at work, etc.

COST: $59, which pays for dinner each week, materials, and a chance to hang out with some awesome people for six weeks.

Women’s Beth Moore Study

WHAT: Beth Moore’s The Quest: An Excursion Toward Intimacy with God

Curiosity is hardwired in humanity. We have this innate need to question and seek after what we don’t know or understand. In this study, delve into Scripture to explore how God created us to seek after Him—a God who desires to be found and known. In this lifelong quest of faith, learn to develop your intimacy with Him and embrace the adventure that comes with living a life for God.

The structure of this study is different from the other Beth Moore studies you may be used to in that it is designed to spark conversation between you and God. The weekly homework will be a guided study of scripture with opportunities to dialogue with God through prayer journaling woven in. Our hope for this fall is to journey together while each of us engages God in our individual lives, talking to Him and listening for His responses back to us. We hope that in this process that you will develop a foundation of intimacy with Him that you can continue to build on long after the study is done.

COST: $15 which covers the workbook

WHERE: DCC Wash Park – Community Room

WHEN: Thursdays, 6:30-8:30pm, Beginning October 11th
