Compassion Summer Camp was a huge success! We had 40 campers and 20 volunteers fill the church with joy the week of July 12-16. Campers learned about what it means to show compassion to themselves and others. We explored Bible stories of compassion through Miriam, Elijah, the Good Samaritan, Pentecost, and Paul’s letters to his friends. We learned the Compassion Chant: “I see your hurt, I feel your hurt, and I help ease your hurt” as a way to remember how we can show compassion to others. We were reminded that God cares about us just as much as anyone else and that our needs are important too. We live streamed the morning worship each day on the DPC YouTube channel for the 16 campers who were working away from the church as well as anyone else who wanted to join us. Campers collected over 8 bags and boxes of school supplies for students connected with Memorial Drive Ministries.
Join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am and at 5 pm on the 1st Sunday.
Worship is the heartbeat of Decatur Presbyterian Church, the most important hour of the week. In worship, we offer praise, receive forgiveness, listen to God’s Word, pray for the needs of the world, and offer ourselves as living sacrifices to God.
