When you first arrive: As you enter the parking lot you will notice that we have special guest parking near the front entrance. Our parking attendants will help you find a place to park, and as you approach the main worship center, one of our greeters will meet you and direct you to the right area. They can also answer any other questions you may have.
The worship service begins at 10am on Sunday mornings, and filled with beautiful and inspiring worship music from the choir, ensembles, and soloists. The music is always followed by a clear, helpful, and challenging Bible message from Pastor Joe McKaig.

The Discipleship Process
Cost of Discipleship
This class is required before you can be paired up in a Discipleship Relationship. If you are ready to go deeper in your walk with Christ and want to be involved in Life on Life Discipleship (Discipleship 1).
Discipleship 1 (D1)
Discipleship 1 (also referred to as D1) is one of the foundational ministries at DBC. It is the first step in getting grounded in the Word of God, the key to spiritual growth, ministry involvement and leadership service.
The process of Discipleship 1 is a one-on-one (life on life) relationship with another member here at DBC for the purpose of prayer, spiritual growth, encouragement and Bible study. If you are interested you will need to take the Cost of Discipleshipprior to being pared up for D1.
A series of Bible study lessons are used to establish each person in the Worship of God: The focus of your life, in the Word of God: The authority of your life, and in the Work of God: The purpose of your life.
Discipleship 2 (D2)
Discipleship 2 is a group study where every person is given the proper tools and steps on how to study their Bible. Understanding key words and phrases, the importance of context, application, rightly dividing and many other valuable principles enable each person to understand the Bible like they’ve never been able to do before. Discipleship 2 prepares you for an exciting lifelong journey of knowing God and His Word in a powerful, life-changing way.
