The purpose of Spiritual
Growth at Damascus Community Church is to
strengthen and mature every believer, making
disciples and presenting them complete in
Christ (Colossians 1:28).
In order to accomplish our
purpose, we offer various Bible teaching
and fellowship opportunities to both children
Groups on Sunday morning and study
groups at other times. Our adult classes
focus on the study and application of
God's Word. We offer a variety of
subjects throughout the year. Please
check our This Week at a Glance page for
a listing of current adult classes.
Our goal at Damascus
Community Church is to strengthen and
mature every believer, and to present
them complete in Christ, (Colossians
1:28). In order to accomplish this goal,
we offer Sunday School for children from
nursery age through sixth grade.
The nursery is located in the south hall
on the main floor. A trained staff of
volunteer adults and teens care for
children from birth through 2 years of
age. In case a child is needed by
his/her parents, we have a numerical
paging system in the auditorium.
Our educational focus on Sunday mornings
is Sunday School for children age 2
through sixth grade during our Community
Group hour (9:45 am). Dedicated
volunteer adult teachers and teen
helpers serve in the pre-school and
school age departments. Currently, we
offer Sunday School for pre-school age
children during all three morning
services (8:30 am, 9:45 am and 11:00
am). This is a curriculum based
education and equipping ministry to lead
our children to Christ and to mature
them in their knowledge of, and
relationship with, Christ.
AWANA is our Sunday evening ministry
(5:15 pm - 7:00 pm) to children
kindergarten through 6th grade. This
ministry is strong on Scripture memory
work and is attractive to young people
because of its game time, prizes and
special events. Each year we send a
number of our qualified club members to
the AWANA scholarship camp. We minister
to our pre-school children through a
program called “TeamKid.” This program
is much more geared to their needs and
Student Ministries exist
to integrate students into the life stream
of the congregation by providing programs
for Junior High, Senior High and College
We currently offer Sunday morning Bible
study for Junior, Senior High and
College age students at 9:45 am Junior
High Discipleship time on Sunday
evenings is at 5:30 pm, while a mid-
week time on Wednesday nights from 7:00
to 8:30 pm is a highlight for many
Junior and Senior high students. The
Flock and Vertical promote participation
through age-related activities, retreats
and studies throughout the year.
The purpose of Small Groups
is to gather our adults together in small
groups (generally 6-12 people) during the
week with a focus on the building of relationships
and meeting needs by the study of God's
Word and the application of His truth to
everyday living. Small Groups are made up
of adults of all ages and in all stages
of life - young and older, single and married,
new Christians and "seasoned saints."
Small Group members share not only joys,
but also failures and frustrations, and
faithfully pray for one another. Small Groups
generally form in September and meet regularly
through the year ending in May.
For more information on the Small Group ministry,
you may contact the church office at 503-658-3179.
Today's women vary greatly in their circumstances.
While this means some of their needs vary,
there are some needs common to all women.
This really isn't as modern as one might
From the beginning book of the Bible we
find women in circumstances like ours and
having the same kind of needs. The Bible
tells us of God going to women to meet their
needs and women looking to God for what
they needed for themselves and others. This
is the basis for DCC's Women's Ministries.
We offer opportunities for spiritual growth,
fellowship, encouragement, service and outreach.
We do this with a desire to see each woman
increasingly know God better, love Him,
and live a life pleasing to Him in every
We invite you to join us!
