It can be difficult to build relationships during our Sunday morning gatherings at the church building, so we provide many opportunities throughout the week where you can get plugged into smaller groups, volunteer your time, make friends and enjoy fellowship. One of the ways to do this is to serve in a ministry. Each of our ministries serves an important part in helping to make DVCC a friendly, encouraging place.
Behind the Scenes
The Behind the Scenes team coordinates and helps to carry out some of the preparations for Sunday worship. Those involved "behind the scenes" prepare communion, help with coffee clean-up, assist with seasonal decorating or count attendance.
If you like to serve away from the "spotlight", this ministry could be the place for you!
Building and Grounds
The Building and Grounds team is responsible for coordinating the maintenance of the interior and exterior of our church building and surrounding grounds.
If you like to work outdoors or if you are handy with a hammer, this could be the place for you!
The Children's Ministry works closely with our Children's Ministry Director to create a safe, nurturing place for children during our adult worship service.
If you enjoy working with children and have a heart to bring Jesus to the next generation, Children's Ministry could be the place for you!
The Communication Ministry is responsible for dispersing information about events and activities of DVCC to the congregation and to our surrounding community. This is done through weekly announcements, social media, email and the occasional movie production. The Communication Team also assembles our weekly online worship video and maintains the church's website.
If you enjoy writing, social media or technology in general, this could be the place for you!
Everyone likes a great party! The Events Planning Team works closely with staff members to help plan, organize and execute various church-wide events throughout the year.
If you like to plan, are creative, know your way around Pinterest and like to try new things, the Event Planning Team could be the place for you!
The Finance Team oversees the church budget, and manages church funds. If you like attention to detail and are good with numbers, the Finance Team may be the place for you!
The Hospitality Team helps to create a warm and friendly environment for guests and members. The team is responsible for greeting visitors, and serving at the Welcome Table. The Hospitality Ministry also helps to coordinate meals for those with special needs such as a new baby or hospitalization.

Intercessors Prayer Team
The Intercessors Prayer Team meets year-round and is dedicated to praying for the church. Each week the group prays for our church leaders, Life Groups, ministries, outreach, finances, and the individual needs of our congregation.
If you have a heart for the church and feel called to pray, the Intercessors Prayer Team could be the place for you!
The Outreach Team works closely with our pastors to implement the Great Commission locally and globally. This team assists in our ministry to Fair Acres, Penn State and provides support to our missionaries.
The Worship Team creates an environment of worship to God through music and other creative methods. The Worship Ministry includes instrumentalists, singers, and the Tech Team.
Tech Team members receive training on our sound and visual equipment. Auditions are required for instrumentalists and singers.
If you sing, play an instrument, enjoy technology or have a good ear for sound, the Worship Ministry could be the place for you!
