Are you looking for a place to serve at DEC? God has gifted each of us differently and has called us to use our gifts to encourage and edify the church. 

1 Corinthians 12:4-6; 12-14

"There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many."

All of our different gifts make up the body of DEC and the greater body of the universal church. If you would like to use your giftedness to serve here are some opportunities:


MOPS | Mothers of preschoolers

MOPPET helpers needed!

We're so excited for this new MOPS year. We’ve already started a waiting list since the group is growing faster than we can get childcare. The only way to make this ministry possible is to get enough volunteers to care for the kids. The commitment is only the first and third Wednesdays from 9-11am, starting Sept 20th. Your help will make a huge difference in the lives of these families. Please contact Grace at Thank you!
