Advent Conspiracy 2021 Totals

Our final totals have come in for DCC's Advent Conspiracy Initiative in 2021.

Our five local community groups (who are featured farther down in this article) received a total of $25,000. Living Water International received $50,000, which will go toward at least three known wells. In additon, a donor in Texas asked Living Water International to match their own giving with a church and DCC was selected. So an addiional so $40,000 will go toward building wells. So that's $75,000 plus $40,000 which equals a total of $115,000 for Advent Conspiracy this year. Isn't that amazing!

Psalm 115:1 says "Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory,  for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!" 

Thank you to each one of you that were participants. We ask God to go ahead and mobilize these acts of faithfulnees for His glory. Amen 

The following is a list of our global and local community partners for Advent Conspiracy 2021.

madisonFallsAs a part of Advent Conspiracy in late 2020, the Community Engagement Team at Dungeness Community Church was blessed to support Clallam Mosaic, a local non-profit that benefits individuals with special needs in our community. The following article, explains the history and the heart of Clallam Mosaic, from their humble roots in 1998 to their work in 2020 to help their community in the midst of a pandemic.

Clallam Mosaic – 22 Years of Service

In 1998, four families came together in a living room wondering what would happen to their child when he/she graduated from high school. All of these parents had one thing in common; their child was a student with special needs. As they looked around the community at adults with special needs, they saw a bleak future. Their children seemed destined to sit at home with no activities to engage in other than watching TV. They were worried that their children would lose all of the hard-fought learning they had acquired through their school years. The future was scary!

Mothers Day Project for Obria Pregancy Resource Center - 2021

Mother's Day is just around the corner, on May 9th. As a staff we were discussing what to do this Mother's Day, as a congregation. Sometimes we do things specifically to recognize moms but not everybody is a mom, so we thought we would come up with a way that all of us could honor our moms, and bless some other moms, along with some important women in our lives.

We are taking a special offering this Mother's Day season as a tribute to honor motherhood. We're going to use that as a gift to Obria Pregnancy Medical Resource Center. Obria is right here in Sequim and they help moms, many who are going through a difficult time in their pregnancy.

So, if you donate to help with Obria, we're going to give you a flower and you can present that flower to a special lady of your choice. So, be planning ahead for mother's day and a special offering. For those of you who are joining us online and want to participate in this CLICK THIS LINK

The mission of the Community Engagement Team (CET) is to encourage our congregation to reach out to our community with the love and message of Jesus Christ. We do this by providing outreach training for the DCC family. We explore the local area for outreach opportunities by continually exegeting the Sequim community. We then inform the elders and pastoral staff to see if these opportunities are a good fit for DCC in a given season. An ongoing goal of the Community Engagement Team is to build relationships of trust and goodwill with community leaders.

Wow!!! What a whirlwind summer!  When God decides now is the time, He makes what was before seemingly impossible come together. In the middle of the Covid lockdown God, through His people, birthed a women’s home in downtown Sequim.  The body at DCC has lovingly stepped forward to provide prayer, finances, furnishings, and much more.  You all joined a much bigger movement of His Spirit in the Sequim Valley as God brought other major churches alongside to bring about His plan.    For so long a women’s faith-based home has been much needed in the middle of this plague of addiction in Sequim and Port Angeles.  This scourge has effected families inside and outside the body of Christ.
