We love creating opportunities for our community to intentionally journey together and build relationships that encourage and challenge us in our faith. DCC Community Groups foster meaningful connection with others in a variety of settings and neighborhoods by creating a welcoming, safe, and inclusive environment. Community Groups seek to grow closer to God, share life and friendship with each other, and care practically for their neighbors and their communities. Our hope for all participating in our groups is that we would root ourselves in the love of God, so that we can become who we were created to be. For an LGBTQ+ group, click here.
Denver Community Church ran a 5-week Learning Community in March of 2017 to help our faith community learn and process our move to full inclusion from January of that year. To watch or listen to the content, please see below.
