Join the students of DCC almost every Sunday night from 4:30-6:45pm as we play games, eat dinner, worship, listen to a message, then discuss what it means for our lives. Jr. High and High School are combined for most of the night, but when we can, we break up for teams in games, and for discussion at the end. The students in our community might be different ages, but we think that’s why we have so much fun together!
Student Community is a place for you to be yourself, talk about what’s important to you, and make solid friends that will last through the ups and downs of school. It’s a place where you can ask questions, a place where you can say “I don’t know,” and a place where you can say exactly what you think, then even change your mind.
We’re not about being ultra-cool, deciding who’s in and who’s not, or making everyone be the same.
At Student Community you will get to know a caring adult who wants to know what you think about life, and who wants to help you decide how you can live in the best possible way. You will also get to know some peers who are on the same life journey as you and who want to talk about real things, not just the stuff that’s on the surface.
One thing I really like about youth group is it lets me hang out and have a great time with people I wouldn’t otherwise even know. ~Sam
Student Community is also a place where we’ll have fun. Where we’ll laugh at ourselves and each other, and where it’s OK to be a little geeky.
So come try it out for a while, and see how you fit into our Community!
Sundays from 4:30-6:45pm during the school year, with various events and trips available throughout the year, plus lots of fun events during the summer: it’s all posted on Facebook!
Raising kids is not an easy gig, so to have a safe, fun space like youth group where my son can connect, laugh and grow alongside peers and supportive, caring adults means the world. ~Abby
Family Service Saturdays
Families that serve together, stay together! Each quarter, families gather together on a Saturday morning to serve elderly members of DCC. From yard work, to window washing, to cleaning out cars; you name it, we do it! As many hands make light work, we’ll usually serve two people before enjoying lunch together and heading our separate ways.
Each year in February, we head to Lake Tahoe for two days and three nights of pure snow awesomeness. We stay in cabins right next to the lake, and whether we tube, ski, or cross-country, we always have a blast getting to know each other, talking about things that matter, and enjoying the snow!
Don’t miss our annual all-day rafting trip! Each summer we hit the American River for some excellent white water adventure! Bring a friend–the more the merrier!
Beach Camping and Cleanup
What better way to wrap up the summer than to hit the beach AND help beautify it? We spend two nights right on the coast, hiking, playing and talking about caring for God’s creation. And of course, we take time to clean up loads of trash!
Have you ever wanted to explore more about your own faith? Every two years, we hold Confirmation Class. It’s a 12-week process of talking about Christianity, and what it means for you. Students are paired with adult mentors to help process the journey, and at the end, students can join the church, if they’d like.
