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.
CET Has A Local Focus
While the Global Outreach Committee manages the broad reach of DCC across the globe, The Community Engagement Team promotes, oversees and shepherds the work the affects our local community in Clallam County and the Northern Olympic Peninsula. Here is a list of some groups we are curently working with:
Beautiful Day – A group of Christian churches partnering together with community organizations, schools, businesses and individuals to impact our city with generosity. Our desire is to empower those we relate to in our church community, and already work alongside with, in local organizations, businesses and schools to get out and make big difference in our city at least one weekend a year each April. We also will actively encourage Beautiful Day volunteers to continue serving their communities throughout the year.
