Hope you’ve had a glorious week between watching beautiful snow flakes falling, and seeing the emergence of fantastic flowers, shrubs, trees, leaves, and the greening of the earth as spring makes its arrival now in extraordinary ways!
Here are a couple of updates for this week as you look forward to joining in fellowship, worship and ministry this coming Sunday and into next week.
SUNDAY WORSHIP, 9:30 a.m. We share in HOLY COMMUNION on this first Sunday of the month, and we’ll be going to the hospital after worship to extend the Lord’s table to members of God’s family on the long-term care unit there. Others will remain at DCC for coffee and fellowship after worship.
Sermon will be: Scoping out the Neighborhood: Stethoscope. We hope you can join us as we further consider the ways in which we are learning some fresh approaches for considering our community and neighborhood through the lens of Scripture and with metaphors of various “scopes” as we seek to pay attention to what God is doing in our midst, and through us to embody Jesus’ love.
