Davis Community Church believes in a bottom-up approach to ministry together. The various ministries of DCC are open to everyone and are a great first step toward creating meaningful relationships with others. If you are looking for a way to find community in Davis, there’s no better way to do that than by joining an intentionally loving, open and accepting group. Read about DCC’s ministries below, and click on “contact a ministry” to learn more and connect.
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! Help us expand beyond the “sitting in rows of chairs” approach to make better connections.
BUILDINGS & GROUNDS
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.
The Children’s Ministry of Davis Community Church seeks to create a loving, safe, supportive community that fully engages our children 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 children and families by teaching Sunday School, planning family activities, organizing childcare, or keeping us connected to the ministry of DCC? If so, please join us.
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.
COMPASSION, PEACE, AND JUSTICE
The Ministry of Compassion, Peace, and Justice shall oversee and promote the response of our church community and its individual members to God’s calling to be a missional church in our community and 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. The ministry shall oversee and support mission work based at, or directly connected to, Davis Community Church such as the Brown Bag Lunch program, Cal Aggie Christian Association, the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter, and use of the Deacons Fund. Church and Society Ministry shall also support and promote other faith-based, non-profit, and interfaith endeavors that further the mission calling of our church through groups such as Heifer Project, Bread for the World, and Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network.
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, homebound, or in need of someone to listen, to be present, to be an advocate. In our large congregation Congregational Care Ministry provides personal care and support to families and individuals, along with an opportunity to sense God’s presence and provision. Click above to see how you can live your faith through Care Teams, the Prayer Chain, or one of the many other ministries of Congregational Care.
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.
