Dear Church Family,

As we move into Fall there are several changes happening within our staff. I sat down with everyone a few days ago to discuss and want to share that conversation with you. I hope you’ll take 15 minutes to hear what is going on.
 
Speaking of changes, for those of you that are doing church online, this Sunday we are transitioning from a pre-recorded service to a live-stream. The service will be live online starting at 10:00 am (you can also watch any time after that). To view the live-stream just go to DCChurch.org and click the "Livestream" button.
 
A big thank you to Shane and his team for the work they have put in to make this happen. 
 
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday morning either in-person or online!
 
In Him,

Pastor Tim

In July of 2021, David Piper travelled to Guatemala to help distribute wheelchairs with DCC Global Partner, Bethel Ministries International. David sat down for an interview with Britt Hemphill, who is the Family Ministries Pastor for DCC as well as the chair for DCC's Global Outreach Committee. Watch that video here, along with excerpts from David's personal blog about the trip. 

If you would like to learn more about the Global Outreach Committee at DCC, reach out to Britt Hemphill. He can include you in our DCC on Mission newsletter. 

 

Honoring The Legacy & Testimony of Ted Sires

"Do you have any role models? Men or women who have had a significant impact on your life because of the way they've lived? Ted Sires is one of those men for me. Today I'm the pastor of Dungeness Community Church, but this church is here because Ted Sires and his wife Sandy, and a few other couples, over 40 years ag, decided that they wanted to start a church. But, Ted didn't just want to start a church. Ted wanted to follow Jesus. And he followed jesus well. And when Ted passed away at almost age 90 he left behind a rich legacy in his own family, his children, his grandchildren, and also in the life of this Church and this community. It was an unusual memorial service because Ted actually preached his own sermon. He had recorded it ahead of time, and it is a powerful testimony of his faith in God, and of God's faithfulness in Ted's life. We'd like to share that message with you now. Here's Ted."  - Pastor Tim

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!
