Trunk or Treat

BO7B1555.jpg

Trunk or Treat is a safe way to enjoy the Fall season with your family. For the last two years we we had rain and had to move the event inside. We liked it so much we decided to keep it inside this year as well! It's heated, safe, and provides much more parking! Kids can go from room to room to receive pre-packaged candy from costumed friends. DEC wanted to have this event to reach out to the community of Durham and to bring the community of DEC together. We also wanted to provide a safe place with non-scary costumes and decorations.

This event allows ages from 1-92 to get in on the fun!

This event will run from 3-5PM at Durham Evangelical Church.

Outdoor Movie Night

movienight.jpg

**IN CASE OF RAIN**


The forecast is looking grim for Friday. However, WE WILL STILL HAVE THE EVENT. We will be moving the event in the Worship Center in the event of rain. Still bring your own blankets and chairs because we will be putting all of the chairs to the side so you can relax!

We will have free popcorn and the Organically Mooed Food Truck will be selling ice cream and other yummy snacks! You are more than welcome to bring your own snacks as well!

Parking will be available on the upper and side parking lots at DEC. 

We will begin the evening at 7:30PM. The movie should end around 9:30PM.

 


Join us for some family fun at our outdoor movie night! Bring your chairs, blankets, snacks, and friends for a fun night featuring "The Greatest Showman". We'll have some drinks and movie snacks for you, but you are more than welcome to bring your own snacks to enjoy!

Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

Parking will be available on the upper and side parking lots at DEC. 

We will begin the evening at 7:30PM. The movie should end around 9:30PM.

WATCH A SCENE FROM THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, "THIS IS ME"!

Focus on the Family's Plugged In review

"Hugh Jackman, who stars as P.T. Barnum here, recently compared the iconic character he portrays to "Elon Musk or Steve Jobs." Like those men, Barnum was truly an innovator. He constantly challenged the rules of traditional society, creating an unprecedented world of wonder as he invited audiences to gaze into the great and the unknown, the majestic and the mysterious. "Comfort," he opined, was "the enemy of progress." 

Barnum's extravagant circus performances appealed to huge audiences. But those shows also generated criticism from some who felt the great showman's work was nothing but an immoral spectacle. The Greatest Showman paints a portrait of the metaphorical tightrope P.T. Barnum walked, and we're drawn into his mesmerizing world where dreams take flight. There, all individuals have value, family is esteemed highly, and fidelity is shown to be the bedrock of marriage. 

It's a place where you feel as if anything is possible, that any dreamer can conquer the world. You might even stand to leave with a feeling of true joy thinking, as did Barnum, "The greatest art is of making others happy."

Parking and tickets

When you arrive to Pawtuckaway State Park let them know you are with Durham Evangelical Church for their Lake Day. Otherwise they will likely charge you to enter the park. Please try to arrive to the event early. 2 years ago we were delayed by almost an hour because the line was so backed up at 11AM. You can enjoy outdoor activities and fellowship if you arrive early. 

You can follow the DEC Lake Day signs to where you will park. 

Sometimes people have trouble with the directions when using their phone apps. There are many signs once you are close to the Park. You can follow those signs to the Park entrance.

Courageous Grandparenting
Oct
21
10:00 AM10:00

Courageous Grandparenting

We live in turbulent times—evil days filled with lies and godlessness. The hearts and souls of our children and grandchildren are at risk. These are urgent times needing grandparents who will choose not to pass the baton and take a seat on the sidelines. Your leg of the race is not yet completed. The race is still on and you are called to finish well. You are needed because God’s purpose for you to disciple and bless another generation to walk in the truth is not complete.

DEC will be hosting the Courageous Grandparenting Conference (Seminar) presentedby Dr Glenn Havumaki, author of Trashed or Treasured and Jere Vincent Family Builders Ministries, on Saturday, October 21st from 10am-4pm in the Function Hall at DEC to help you finish the race well. Glenn and Jere will unpack practical, biblical tools to help you build a faith legacy that outlives you generation after generation. Whether you are a grandparent, parent or other concerned member of God’s family, this event is for you. It is for anyone not content to merely be a good grandparent, parent or Christian. “It is a call to courageous, intentional faith,” according to Glenn Havumaki, “in which we live our lives as conduits of God’s grace and truth one generation to another. Will you join me as we link arms together in response to God’s call to build a movement of courageous grandparents (and parents) who understand the times and know how to fight for the hearts and souls of their families?”

 

Registration: Cost for this event is $25 per person, which includes lunch and materials. Registration closes on Tuesday, October 17th.

Outdoor Service

Outdoor Service

 

Why an outdoor service?

The outdoor service is set out to accomplish two major goals: building our community at DEC and breaking down a barrier for people at DEC to their non-believing family and friends.

Here at DEC we wanted to provide a place where everyone could share in one service together. Providing two separate services at DEC is a necessity to fit everyone in the building, but those who attend first service may never meet someone who attends second service and vice versa. One of our missions as a church is to provide opportunities to build our community. We believe this is a unique event that will allow for our entire church body to build that community as we join together in worshiping our Lord.

We also understand that some people may feel intimidated or afraid to step inside the doors of a church. This service is a great, non-threatening way, for our congregation to invite their non-believing friends and family.

We also believe this is an event that fulfills all three of our main goals at DEC: worship, community, and proclamation.

 

What should I bring?

This is not only an opportunity to build the community within our church, but this is an opportunity for you to invite a friend!

This is a "picnic style" event. We will only be providing seating for a small amount of people, so bring your lawn chairs, blankets, or whatever you plan to sit on for the service and the meal.

We are asking that you bring a side dish that could feed the amount of people you are bringing to the event to share. The church will provide burgers and hot dogs with all the fixin's. We will also provide drinks.

DSC_0355-300x199.jpg

 

Where do I park?

Wagon Hill can only hold so many cars. We are asking those who are handicapped, elderly, pregnant, or parents with infants to park at Wagon Hill while those who are able bodied take the shuttles. If you are parking at Wagon Hill there will be signs and parking attendants to show you where to park.

If you are someone who would like to park at Wagon Hill, please pick up a parking ticket on Sunday, August 27th or Sunday, September 3rd from the Connect Table in the Worship Center.

There will be a shuttle leaving from DEC and from Oyster River High School beginning at 9AM and continuing every 15 minutes.

The shuttles will resume after the service to take you back to DEC or ORHS beginning at noon and continuing every 30 minutes ending at 1:50PM.

If you are a UNH student the shuttle from UNH will bring you to and from this event.

 

What if it rains?

In the unfortunate event that it is raining we will provide information for you by the afternoon of Friday, September 8th on this page and our DEC Facebook page

 

What else should I know?

There will not be an 8:30AM and 10:30AM service at the DEC building. We will only be meeting at Wagon Hill for the 10:30AM service.

This is a family friendly event. Please do not bring alcoholic beverages.

While Wagon Hill is a dog friendly park, we ask that you do not bring your dogs to this event.
