The mission of DEC is to glorify God by making mature disciples of Jesus through worship, community and proclaiming the Gospel locally and globally. This is the same mission that guides the DEC women’s ministry.

The vision of women’s ministry at DEC is to offer opportunities for spiritual growth, events, and support that aligns with the overall mission of DEC and addresses the unique needs and roles of women. As daughters of the King we are chosen, redeemed, cleansed, called, empowered, and enabled to bring the message of Jesus Christ to a broken world. This vision promotes a life that is centered in Christ and an identity that is rooted in God’s unconditional and extravagant love for his children so that we are always prepared to share the reason for the hope we have in Christ.

Women’s Ministry at DEC is offering an Inductive Bible study on Tuesday evenings which is open to all women.  This study’s purpose is to practice the self-discipline of hearing and obeying the voice of the Lord in a safe and nurturing environment.

Women’s Time Together – Coffee at the Milk House

Contact: Mel Young,

Wednesdays– 8:30 am to 10:00 am

Come when you can, leave when you have to. This is a time for women to informally connect over coffee. If you have children, bring them. No official childcare will be provided, but we figure this is like being at another women’s home.  Bring some toys (we will have some at the Milk House also) or something for them to do.  It may be loud at times, peaceful at times – but we figure, it is community and life and exactly how God wants us to be living and growing together.



Friday, November 16th at 7PM - Saturday, November 17th at 5PM at the The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine

While women do no have to attend with friends, the “getaway” will be organized so that women who are already friends (or hope to develop a friendship) will spend the “getaway” together and then hopefully continue that community after the weekend is over. The hope is that women will return home recharged and ready to engage those around them with Christ’s love, surrounded by a few women who can encourage them.

Any woman from DEC is invited to participate and invite a friend (or a few friends!) even if they do not attend DEC.
