The annual Covenant Men's Retreat in Mission Springs has arrived! Join hundreds of other men in a time of fellowship, worship, and devotion to the Lord. If you are interested, please contact Allen Johnson; email@example.com or Bill Schappert; firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us on Wednesday evening, March 29th as we volunteer our time at the SF Food Bank. Our time slot is 6-8pm, and we'll be leaving 65 Dorland St to drive over at 5:20, so please be dropped off by 5:15pm. Pickup will be either at the Food Bank at 8pm if that's convenient for your family, or at 65 Dorland around 8:30pm.
Prayer is vital to followers of Jesus, and vital to any Church that strives to seek the kingdom of God. Our next prayer meeting will be on Sunday February 26th at 4pm in the gym on the second floor of the Anderson building. Please bring a list of 5 people you know that people can pray for. If you can, please join us in seeking the Lord.
Friday February 24th, we're going to meet at 65 Dorland at 6:20pm and walk together to the BART station at 16th and Mission. We will be serving at YWAM San Francisco at 357 Ellis St from 6:45-9/9:30pm and then BARTing back to church where pickup is at 10pm or if you need a ride, I'll be providing rides home. YWAM is a fabulous organization our church partners with and their experience working with youth ministries is extensive. Youth ministries from across the Bay Area and country come to YWAM for service projects throughout the year. Friday evenings they have a Hot Chocolate Ministry where they send teams out around the neighborhood and provide folks with a nice hot chocolate and the opportunity to pray for them. Each evening begins with a training/orientation for the teams led by YWAM's experienced staff and there is a debrief afterwards as well. We will be holding our own debrief when we get back to DPC together that night. Our prayer is that it will be a valuable time to be stretched and grow as leaders and students alike.
**** Just for peace of mind, for safety reasons students are never sent out in groups without an adult from our church present who is leading the team.
What to Wear: Closed-toed, comfortable shoes and Layers.
What to Bring:
1. A DPC 2016/17 permission slip AND a YWAM Permission slip (click here for under 18 and here for over 18).
2. $3.90 for BART.
3. $5 for the cost of the service supplies. (DPC will cover the other $5 as it's $10 per person).

The Alpha Pregnancy Center Walk for Life is a day for us to join together and help families that are facing the difficult situation of an unexpected pregnancy, or raising children as a result of those pregnancies. Like any fundraising walk, participants walk to raise funding and awareness of a cause they are passionate about. In this case it is making sure families have complete, holistic support to keep a surprise baby and raise it with abundant love. Unlike other fundraising walks, participants in the APC Walk for Life deliver care packages to the families supported through Alpha Pregnancy Center. Click here to register!
