Opportunities for Connection

DCC Women’s exists to support and equip women in their spiritual development, relationships, and in where they feel their role is in this world. Our hope is to create space for women at DCC to cultivate authentic connection with God and with other women. In every space, we focus on Community, Identity, and Influence. Below are some ways to connect to our DCC Women’s Community. We hope you can join us in our upcoming events!

Community Groups

Community Groups at DCC are a way to engage in a weekly time of building relationships, discussing, learning, asking questions, and growing in our understanding of a God who is love. Explore Community Groups below, or contact Julie McCaffrey for more information.

DCC Women’s Book Study:

John Ortberg’s All the Places To Go… How Will You Know?

WHAT: Over the course of 6 weeks we will reading John Ortberg’s book All the Places To Go… How Will You Know? During our time together we watch a short video from the author and utilize a corresponding group study guide as we process the material together.

ABOUT THE BOOK:God has placed before you an open door. What will you do? Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to “Stay.” He opens a door, and then he invites us to walk through it—into the unknown. And how we choose to respond will ultimately determine the life we will lead and the person we will become. In fact, to fail to embrace the open door is to miss the work God has made for us to do. In All the Places to Go . . . How Will You Know?, bestselling author John Ortberg opens our eyes to the countless doors God places before us every day, teaches us how to recognize them, and gives us the encouragement to step out in faith and embrace all of the extraordinary opportunities that await. So go ahead—walk through that door. You just might do something that lasts for eternity.

WHERE: Denver, CO

WHEN: Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30pm starting October 9th- November 13th (6 weeks)

COST: $13 for the book – books will be distributed the first night of study.

DCC Women’s Book Discussion Group: Angie Smith’s Seamless: Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story 

WHAT: If you are someone who feels intimidated by the vastness that is the Bible or simply wish to gain a basic understanding of how the individual bible stories connect to one another and to the person of Jesus, come join us for 7 weeks as we go though Angie Smith’s Seamless bible study. The weekly homework assignments in the workbook will have you digging in and reading the key portions of scripture. We’ll then meet as a group we will review our homework and discuss together.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Discover the people, places, and promises of the Bible in seven sessions. Seamless connects the pieces together into the greater story of Scripture so participants can gain an understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word. Seamless will help you replace insecurity that holds you back with clarity so you can move forward with confidence in your understanding of Scripture.
Each week of study focuses on key information that connects all of Scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message and is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies.

DCC Women’s Book Discussion Group: Rachel Held Evan’s Inspired

WHAT: Join us for the next 8 weeks as we read and process together what it means for the bible to be inspired by God and what implications that has for us in our individual faith journey’s.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

If the Bible isn’t a science book, instruction manual, or position paper, then what is it? New York Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans invites readers on a journey of rediscovery as she explores the magic of the Bible, engaging the old, familiar stories in new ways that honor the past and enlighten the present.

Drawing upon recent scholarship and literary analysis, Evans creatively retells our favorite Bible stories, explaining their contexts and possible interpretations, and then connects these ancient stories to our present-day ones. Using her well-honed literary instincts and experience in both evangelical and mainline Protestant traditions, Evans discovers a way of understanding that avoids noncommittal liberalism on one hand and strident literalism on the other.

Readers are invited to fall in love with Scripture all over again without checking their intellect–or their imaginations–at the door.

BOOK COST: Please secure your own copy of the book before our first gathering

Theories of Inspiration Bible Study

WHAT: What does it mean to say that the Bible is inspired? Group A says… Group B says… How can they come to such different conclusions? Does one group “respect the authority of Scripture” and the other group not?f Jesus came to show us the Father, why are his words and actions often so much more kind and merciful than the words and actions of God in Leviticus or Deuteronomy?Is God good? I invite you to come and explore these questions and more in an 8-week class designed to enrich your relationship with God through a better understanding of who our Father is.

WHERE: Wash Park Conference Room (Upstairs near DCC Kids)
