ways to serve

No matter your gifts, we have a place for you

Serving on Ministry teams

DCC is a ministry-led church! This means that we operate democratically: the church is led BY the people, for the people. They're called ministries but they're more like action groups. Scroll down to learn more about the different ministries that make DCC who it is.

Adult formation

the folks who do classes

Adult Formation Ministry helps adults both in our congregation and in the wider Davis Community who long for opportunities to learn about the beliefs and traditions of Christianity and ways that they might deepen their own spiritual journeys. We create experiences to deepen our understanding of community making us better able to respond to Jesus’ command to “love our neighbors.” The Ministry welcomes all eager learners to join us, especially those who have interest or experience in 21st Century learning techniques!

Buildings & grounds

The folks who fix stuff

Buildings and Grounds Ministry is both very visible and very fun. As the condition of the property is one of the first things anyone notices when visiting DCC, we feel that a beautiful presentation of the campus helps folks prepare themselves to embrace God.  Do you fancy yourself as being handy around the house?  Do you enjoy working with landscaping?  Or maybe your talents are more interior based?  We do work hard, but we also have lots of fun, and we would enjoy having you connect with us as we care for our campus.

Family Ministry

the folks who care for kids and Teens

The Family Ministry of DCC seeks to create a loving, safe, supportive community that fully engages our children, teens, and families, encouraging them to grow in their Christian faith and to experience and express God’s love to others. Are you feeling called to help create this community for our families by teaching Sunday School? Or volunteering with the youth? Or maybe by planning family activities, organizing childcare, or keeping us connected to the greater population of DCC? If so, please join us!

Community Life

The folks who Party

Do you have the gift of Hospitality? We’re the ministry that makes fun gatherings happen! Opportunities for social interaction, such as meals, coffee hour, small group gatherings, special celebrations, and fun activities help us get to know each other better. The mission of the Ministry of Community Life is to encourage fellowship and community for our congregation and our neighbors and friends who join us for worship and more. If you would like to be involved in making fun times and genuine fellowship happen, please consider joining us, either as a ministry member or to help with specific tasks and events.

New Expressions

Spirituality broadly defined

The New Expressions Ministry of DCC provides, and partners with, diverse programs that offer welcoming community, meaningful engagement and spiritual deepening.  New Expressions practices outreach and forms community partnerships with groups consistent with our mission and vision.  Programs vary widely including art, Centering Prayer, yoga, SoulCollage@, Reiki, meditation and more. 


Compassion, Peace, and Justice

THe folks who have a heart for justice

The Ministry of Compassion, Peace, and Justice (or CPJ as we like to call it) oversees and promotes the response of our church community to God’s calling to be a missional church in our community. This includes involvement in the work of the Presbyterian Church (USA) both nationally and globally, wherever God is leading, to promote peace, justice, and caring for our neighbor in need. CPJ oversees and supports mission work based at, or directly connected to, DCC such as Cal Aggie Christian Association and use of the Deacons Fund. We also support and promote other faith-based, non-profit, and interfaith endeavors such as Heifer Project, Bread for the World, and Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network.

Congregational Care

the folks who care a lot

Congregational Care Ministry provides practical, meaningful care to our congregation and the community. Along with DCC’s pastoral staff and our Stephen Ministry, they provide loving care to those who are ill, home-bound, or in need of someone to listen, to be present, to be an advocate. Congregational Care provides personal care and support to families and individuals. You can live your faith through Care Teams, the Prayer Chain, or one of the many other ministries of Congregational Care.

financial support

the folks who keep the books

Financial Support Ministry provides budget recommendations to session. Their stewardship of the generous gifts and pledges received help us carry out the mission and vision of DCC. Two responsibilities of Financial Support Ministry, planned giving and the building of endowments, help provide for the long-term sustainability of the church. If you feel called to help in any of these areas of service, you will be warmly welcomed into this ministry.
