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):

A Study in Genesis 

WHAT: Spiritual formation is important as it helps us understand our spiritual roots. There can be no place better than the book of beginnings, Genesis. This study will focus on Abraham, and then followed by Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. These patriarchs help us understand what faith is (and is not) as we watch them struggle with loving and following God and grow from spiritual infants into those possessing adult faith.

Not only will we be watching the formation of their faith, but we will, along the way, learn much about interpersonal relationships: husbands and wives, sibling, employer/employee—as well slaves to owners back then. We’ll also learn about how to view those in our community. We will chart the father of faith’s own faith to see how this giant of the Bible (Abraham) is like us.  We will discuss what we can learn from him and the other patriarchs to see how their faith walks apply to our own lives in 2020.

WHERE: Englewood

WHEN: Weekly on Thursdays, beginning January 23, 7pm

MOPs (Mothers of Pre-schoolers)

WHAT: We are a community of moms of young children seeking to provide connection… and coffee! MOPS is a space for moms of littles- by that we mean, pregnant with your first up to having kids in preschool. If we are being honest, sometimes deciding to flourish scares us, because flourishing is wild and organic. It is unpredictable and hard to define and far from tame. It is a dance with holy goodness. And that is both terrifying and thrilling.
