DC Students is a ministry of DC Church to middle and high school students, grades 6th-12th. At DC Students, our purpose is to provide an environment where students can grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We desire to see students worship, connect, and serve as a thriving part of the DC Church family. On Sunday mornings students gather for connect groups, hang time in the youth space, and to participate in a worship service.
Connect Groups are an essential part of our spiritual lives. It's in Connect Groups that students go deeper into God's Word together, build relationships, and encourage one another. It's also here that students are able to work through life's problems together. Connect Groups meet Sunday mornings at the West portsmouth Campus.
Our Connect Groups are lead by adults that want to be used by God in the lives of students to help them understand God's love for them and instill a passion in their hearts to love others! All of our leaders are personally interviewed and background checked to ensure the physical and spiritual safety of our students.
UNITED NIGHTS take place on the first Sunday of each month at the Deep Creek Campus and are an opportunity for middle and high schools students to gather for powerful worship, a message from one of our pastors or leaders, games or activities, and FREE FOOD! Each United Night has a unique theme and provides a great opportunity for students to invite friends to experience the love of Jesus and DC Church. Doors open at 6pm and we wrap up at 8pm.
CONNECT NIGHTS take place all other Sundays after the first Sunday of the month and provide worship, a message, games, and snacks! In addition, students will gather in smaller Connect Groups with their peers and a dedicated leader to break down the week's message and to dig deeper into God's word. Connect Nights are also a great opportunity for students to invite friends to experience what God is doing at DC Church. We begin at 6:30pm and end at 8pm at the Deep Creek Campus.
