DC Students is a ministry of DC Church to middle and high school students (grades 6 - 12).  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.

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. At the Deep Creek Campus, student Connect Groups meet on Sundays at 9:30am for middle and high school. At the West Portsmouth Campus, student Connect Groups meet at 10am.


On Sundays, all students from both DC Church locations gather together for Connect Nights! Connect Nights take place from 5pm - 7pm in the gym at the Deep Creek Campus and consist of food, games, worship lead by our student band, a relevant message, and small groups.  Connect Nights provide an environment for students to be themselves and connect with God and other students.  These are great opportunities for students who want to grow deeper in their faith, as well as those who are looking to begin a relationship with Jesus.
