Each year the women from Discovery Christian Church drive into the mountains because connecting with each other is better. This year we are excited to announce that our speakers will be women from Discovery. Joan Wright, Lisa Cuss, Laura Brasov and Renae Loring will bring an invitation to women to find soul freedom in their walk with Christ. Join us at Camp Elim and prepare to hear the word of God as we sing, pray, and worship together. Enjoy the mountain scenery, play volleyball, canoe around the lake, find a quiet spot to read or just take a nap. The cost for the retreat is $140 for two nights and $85 for one. You can register and pay here. Email email@example.com if you have any questions.
Have you decided: To follow Jesus? To change the pattern of your life? To speak openly of your faith? Are you ready to be immersed into Jesus Christ? Learn about baptism at Discovery. Baptism: Jesus modeled it. God visits it. Early Christians practiced it. Jesus commanded it. For more information, email Dan Pence at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are your debts weighing you down? Do you desire financial freedom? We welcome you to join us through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University Class. This class will teach you everything you need to know to budget, get out of debt, what types of insurance you really need, how to save for retirement and so much more! A kit for class materials will need to be purchased and can be done at the time of registering online for the class here:

Discovery will be hosting, at the Barn, four Growing Home families who are homeless. The families and their children are enrolled in the emergency interfaith family shelter program of the Growing Home agency in Westminster. Discovery households, Life Groups, individuals, and other groups are invited to serve by donating time or resources. You can help by: assisting with room set-up or tear-down, providing a dinner for 16 - 20 persons, serving as evening or overnight hosts by enjoying hanging out with the guest families or providing a fun evening activity. Food and supply donations will be needed & there will be linens to wash at the end of the week. The guest families will be at the church from 5:30 pm each evening until the next morning. Each Growing Home family will have their own room every night. Our overnight hosts will have their own room as well.
All volunteers will receive plenty of assistance and an orientation from our coordinators Tom & Rhonda McNally and Susan Wiitala. Background checks are required for some of the serving opportunities if you have not already completed this at Discovery.
