Friday 1/14!

THIS Friday (1/14) @ 7:30pm, we will have our Spring Kick-off for youth group!

After meeting with our leaders, we made ONE little change to our schedule. NEXT Friday, 1/21, we will NOT have small group outing. We will have a LARGE group event at DCBC (youth room). Please check your email for the Spring Calendar.

We do have hybrid Youth Group (zoom & in-person). Please check your email for the link and password.

Pray with us!

  1. For God to renew and refocus our hearts and minds on Him as we gather together
  2. For the Holy Spirit to come and bring a spiritual renewal in our youth ministry (and our church and to our world).
  3. For the Holy Spirit to help us develop a deeper connection between us. It has been difficult to reestablish relationships between our small groups and our teenagers in large groups.

Need prayer?

I am trying to dedicate every Thursday morning to prayer for our youth group, youth leaders, and our parents. You can put in as many as you would like. Please use this form to let me know how to pray specifically: https://forms.gle/y8qwDo8z63ghi2k78

Thanksgiving Break

Happy Thanksgiving (week)!!! Youth group & Sunday School will be on break until Dec. 3 (youth group) and Dec. 5 (Sunday School).

We are praying for you all this break to be able to have intentional spiritual conversations with your teenager(s). We are praying for each family to experience Christ in an undeniably real way and that, like Jacob (in Genesis), would be transformed as a result of your very real encounter with God. 

If you would like to do the parent/teen activity this week, they are always available here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18T3a6u-o1weKhr2scnkOj-VAYgzHs572GDKdEL6suOw/edit?usp=sharing

Parent/Teen & Spiritual Renewal

Tomorrow (FRIDAY, 11/12), we will not have youth group at DCBC.

This will take the place of our annual winter retreat (we will not have winter retreat this year). Friday is for our teens. Saturday is for families. Kids can come without parents, but our desire is that parents will engage with their teen. 
Please watch this video for further clarification: https://youtu.be/8xkWiRP-nBA
