Youth and Family Ministry
Philosophy of Ministry
The mission of the Youth and Family Ministry is to spread God's glory broader and deeper by equipping the DSC body to lead its youth in the process of Christian maturity. We recognize parents as the God-given and primary instrument of discipleship in a child's life. Therefore the Youth Ministry should never replace parents, but rather come alongside them in the work they are doing. While we have lots of fun together, our philosophy of ministry is no different than the rest of the church—we want our students and families to treasure and worship Jesus above all else because of a greater knowledge of God's glory and our sin.
Meetings and Gatherings
At DSC we hold the weekly assembly of the entire church—both young and old—as one of our highest values. Whilst our youth meetings are important they do not replace our main church services but are in addition to them. Thus, we strongly encourage families to attend the 9:00 AM Sunday service together.
Then, during the second service at 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM we meet as a Youth Group in the Youth Room and do interactive Bible study with group discussion. Here we pray in small groups and study and discuss the passage that is then preached on the following Thursday at Youth Night.
Our Youth Night is each Thursday evening in the Youth Room from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM, but young people are free to come and hang out from 5:00 PM. In this meeting we worship God by sitting under the expository preaching of His Word and by singing His praise. Our Youth Band leads us in this time of song worship.
