Classes

Jesus reveals to us a passion for life, a reverence for matter, and “the holiness of wholeness.”  We at DCC walk this way of life as we focus our hearts and minds on our faith journey. We provide a full array of opportunities to explore spirituality through  the practice of meditation and classes in dreamwork, financial planning, Bible study, yoga, art, personal growth, spiritual direction, Reiki, and other ways to enhance personal well-being.


Many classes are free; some have a fee. Scholarships support our primary mission of welcoming all. You are invited to pay what you find to be affordable. You are also invited to "pay it forward" with a donation to the Scholarship Fund, as you are able. 


Experience new expressions of Christian life and practices that are emerging among us.
