Church Family Update…
Today Scott Rouse begins teaching the adult class on the Book of Ruth… In an effort to involve more people, the class will be live streamed and questions will be furnished each week prior to class so everyone might study and be prepare to get the most possible out of the class.
Bob Brown drove his packed pick-up full of food, towels, and blankets for Newby Ginnings over to their warehouse this past Monday… The volunteers there were ecstatic over the generosity of our congregation. A big thank you to all who helped. You have made the holiday even more special for some vets.
Please let us know if anyone has any need… We are here to help, but also trying to be extra careful during the pandemic. It is extremely important to stay connected during this difficult time and it requires both the effort of those coming to the building and those sheltering at home.
Don’t forget our coat drive… We are looking for any new or gently worn coat (any size). Drop them off soon. Thanks.
The Youth Barn got a new floor this past week… Thanks to some funds provided by the CCS Board they allowed us to take care of what has been an eye-sore for sometime. The old frequently stained carpet was taken up and replaced by a new, fairly indestructible vinyl plank floor. Next up is repainting the room. But, it is a big improvement! God is good.
“This is why you were chosen. A Strong Man who has know power all his life loses respect for that power, But a Weak Man knows the value of strength and knows compassion.” ~Dr. Erikskrine talking to Captain America~

Thank you so much to everyone who gave of their time and money during DGCC’s Family Promise Meal Hosting Weeks this summer during the pandemic. We are incredibly grateful for your support and hearts of service.
- DGCC’s next Family Promise Meal Hosting Week is December 27th through January 2nd! This ministry helps families without safe shelter stay together, find work and resources, and stand on their own feet again. You can be a part of loving on these families in one of three ways during our hosting week:
- Cook meals and “no-contact” deliver with notes of encouragement to hotels in Appleway area. We’ll have specific dietary needs and location drop off information a few weeks before our host week. If you’d like to cook a meal but aren’t able to take it to the families, DGCC coordinators can pick up and deliver the meals for you. We can also provide disposable cookware if needed. Can’t make two meals for two families? Let us know if you can manage one, and we’ll arrange the other.
- Order meals for delivery via Grubhub, Door-Dash, or your favorite restaurant’s delivery option. This can be done ahead of schedule but must arrive to the families between 5-6pm. If you need help with this, please let coordinator Emily Moore know!
Donate gift cards or money toward the Family Promise ministry to the Church office. We’ll use these for nightly meals, breakfast and lunch groceries, and other expenses the families may have while they are in our care.
Please contact coordinator Emily Moore 530-410-2734 (call/text) or firstname.lastname@example.org or Freda Campbell if you have questions or would like to sign-up. We will be using mealtrain.com to keep track of sign-ups. Please look for an email with sign up details on Monday, December 7th.
Thank you again for all you do for this special and necessary ministry!
