“Now when all the nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the Lord spoke to Joshua, saying ‘Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from each tribe, and command them, saying, ‘Take up for yourselves twelve stones from here out of the middle of the Jordan, from the place where the priests’ feet are standing firm, and carry them over with you and lay them down in the lodging place where you will lodge tonight.” So Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the sons of Israel, one man from each tribe; and Joshua said to them, ‘Cross again to the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan, and each of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Israel. Let this be a sign among you, so that when your children ask later, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ then you shall say to them, ‘Because the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off.’ So these stones shall become A MEMORIAL to the sons of Israel forever.”” – Joshua 4.1-7 (NASB)

As we move forward into a new year, a new season as a church family, it is important to take a moment to pause and remember where we have been… to tell stories of the amazing things that the Lord has done among us and how He has brought us to this present moment.

This Sunday, Kevan will be taking us through several such stories, highlighting a few key points along the way which demonstrate the then and now Word of the Lord for DCC. Don’t miss it.

Spotlight on DCC Kingdom Connections 01/19

Spotlight on Kingdom Connections

Pastor, writer, Kingdom leader, and teacher (not to mention, member of DCC’s elder team), Leon DeHaan has taught and ministered all over the US and the world for over 45 years, eventually founding Thrive Ministries International.  Leon and his fabulous wife, Audrey, are personal friends and mentors of many, impacting lives in the DCC family and beyond on behalf of the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thrive “works all over the world to bring powerful and down to earth teaching to believers and ministry leaders.” This is done in a variety of ways, but primarily through podcasts and ministry intensives where Leon travels to Mexico, S. Africa, and other locations, partnering with churches and other mission agencies to teach and train indigenous pastors and Kingdom leaders.


“Thrive works all over the world to bring powerful and down to earth teaching to believers and ministry leaders.”

– Leon DeHaan

Please pray for Leon and Audrey, keeping in mind some of their recent prayer requests…

  • for the US and it’s leaders – that they would reign in righteousness
  • for peace in Israel
  • for the finances of Thrive Ministries International
  • that Leon and Audrey would have wisdom and favor as they move forward into a new time of life and ministry

Peace | Advent 2018

Sermons

December 23, 2018

Historically, the church has celebrated the four weeks of advent to mark the beginning of the liturgical calendar. During this season we remember the incarnation of the Eternal Son and look forward to His return when He will set the world to rights. Advent is a celebration of both remembrance and anticipation.

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
-Matthew 1:23 (NKJV)

“The central miracle asserted by Christians is the Incarnation…
Every other miracle prepares for this, or exhibits this, or results from this…
It was the central event in the history of the Earth—the very thing that the whole story has been about.”
-CS Lewis (Miracles, chapter 14)

Each Sunday of Advent we focus on a different aspect of who JESUS is to us. He is our HOPE, LOVE, JOY, and PEACE. This week, Brian will be leading us in a celebration of JESUS: prince of PEACE.
