October 17 Holy Communion Service: "Rescued From Ourselves" By Pastor Steve

How do we free ourselves from worry? It seems to be human nature to be emotional and to fret about problems and situations that are beyond our control. Jesus knew and understood our temporal tendency to carry this spiritual and mental baggage of “what ifs” and “how wills” until we grow weary. In Matthew 11 verses 29-30, it is written that Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” God walks before us and leads us. Pastor Steve’s message focused on the fact that we can’t always control the circumstances that confront us, but we can control our attitude toward them through prayer and faith in our Savior’s saving Grace. Pastor’s message reminded the congregation to drop those uncomfortable burlap bags of worries and take heart in the promises of scripture, as written in Psalms 23: 1-4: “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. “

October 10 Pastor Appreciation: "Changing the Impossible to Possible" By Pastor Steve

Gary Hackbart opened Sunday service with Call to Worship and noted that DCCC is literally built on God's Word-scriptures sent in from around the world and collected from community members. These scriptures were put in cannisters and buried in the foundation. Thus began the very special Pastor Appreciation Service on October 10. Mark 10: 17-31 was the scriptural focus for Pastor Steve's sermon. this passage, Jesus addresses the question of a rich young man who is seeking answers and affirmation on how he can get into heaven. Without our Savior Jesus Christ interceding for us, mere mortals would find it impossible to get into heaven. This is because we all are sinners answering the call of God the best we can. For each of us, it is human nature to have falls and missteps along the way, despite our best efforts. It is time to ask what keeps us from God in our own lives and also to remember, all things are possible through God.

October 3: "Something To Hold On To" By Pastor Steve

DCCC participated in World Communion Sunday Oct. 3. Pastor Steve’s sermon concluded with Holy Communion and the congregation reading a World Communion Prayer that focused on love, being accepting of one another, and strengthening Christians around the world through faith in Jesus Christ. The congregation joined people across the world in remembering the sacrifices and saving Grace of our Savior Jesus Christ. It was a beautiful service. The scriptural focus for the sermon was Mark 10: 2-16. The sanctity of marriage, the miracle of love, companionship, and sharing in God’s journey are topics included in this message. Pastor delved into the context of Jesus’ exchange with the Pharisees on the topic of marriage and God’s compassionate loving nature, dating back to Genesis when Adam was given the companionship of Eve.
