2nd Annual – Multi-Family Rummage Sale – Thursday, June 16-Saturday, June 18, 9am – 4pm

DPC’s long-awaited rummage sale is finally upon us! At DPC, folks have already been hard at work getting many items ready to sell. But there’s still time for you to get involved!!

You can talk to Carol Buech, Chrys Gregoire or Jessica Driscoll if you’re interested in helping out. Folks will be at church setting up Monday, June 13, Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15.

Then, June 16-18 are the days of the actual rummage sale. On those days, we’ll need people around to help out with ringing people up, restocking our shelves and answering questions for shoppers.

On the evening of June 18, we’ll also need help with tearing down, and getting unsold items where they need to be. You can also donate baked goods, as we’ll have a bake sale too. Any way you can help will be greatly appreciated!

Bible Study will restart February 20

Due to enhanced COVID safety protocols at DPC, the Bible study group has decided to hit “pause” on our Bible study until we will be able to meet in-person again. This means that we will resume our Bible study on February 20. It will be in the conference room at 11 AM. We will look at some of the historical context of the book of Genesis, as well as different genres of writing that appear in the book. Understanding these things will help us to understand the book moving forward.

Family Promise – Week of January 30

The churches of Family Promise are cautiously hopeful that we’ll be able to return to hosting families in the church rotation schedule this spring.

Meanwhile, we continue to share responsibility for providing meals for the three families we have in apartments supported by Family Promise. DPC’s meal week is the week of January 30.

Jane will be sending out instructions in the next couple of weeks so if you would like to help, get in touch with Jane. 

We’re looking for people to make a freezer main meal, salad fixings, bring milk, or make a dessert. You can contact Jane Lurvey at jlurvey@wi.rr.com.

Annual Congregational Meeting – Sunday, February 7th after service

DPC’s Annual Congregational Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 6, 2022, immediately following the church service. Due to high COVID infection rates, we will forego our normal luncheon, and instead stay together in the sanctuary for a short update and time for questions and answers. If you are unable to attend on the 6th or are not comfortable joining us in-person, but would still like to receive an annual report, please contact Pastor Nikki at PastorNikkiDPC@gmail.com
