As of right now, we are cancelling our gatherings for this week (Sunday, March 15). The decision to cancel was made in conjunction with Leadership Council, staff, and the physicians who attend DBIC.
 
This decision was made not out of fear of the disease, but out of our desire to be a place of health and wholeness. We will reassess the situation during the week and send out further information as decisions are made.  While we not being meeting in the same geographic space, we will be streaming a service that you can watch.  There are many details that are being worked out, like whether it will be a live stream or prerecorded video.
 
If all goes according to plan,  some material for the adult Sunday School class made available.  Stay tuned for more details.. 

 

Links will be made available to these resources, so please stay tuned.
 
During this time, please pray and check in on each other and let us know if there are particular needs that we can help with.  While small groups are asked to not meet, they are being asked to function as house churches in caring for each other during this new experience we are all having.
 
If you wish to contribute to the church during this time, you can do so online at https://app.easytithe.com/App/Giving/dbic
 

Do not be afraid, because he will never leave us or forsake us.
