care and support
We offer Recovery and Care Ministries for those who are in the process of recovering from past hurts.

Our goal at DSCC is to help strengthen marriages and families to make them the best they can be. The Marriage Mentoring Ministry is designed to do just this. Whether you are facing challenges in your relationship or would just like some enrichment, our trained mentors can help you by walking you through our 10-week program. Designed by Matt Loehr, the Love & Respect curriculum is a logical, step-by-step process that clearly identifies the issues that may be causing problems for you and your spouse. The feedback from this ministry has been very positive, and we look forward to coming alongside you as well.
upper room prayer ministry
God calls His people to pray. Here at DSCC we recognize prayer is a privilege and the foundation to ministry and fellowship within the body of Christ.
Did you know that prayer leads to a deeper walk with God and builds our faith?
1 John 5:14-15 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
We meet every Thursday evening from 7:00 pm-8:00 pm in the Youth Room. We welcome all ages; however, childcare is not provided. If you are interested in joining the Upper Room Prayer Group, sign up on the form below.
During this time of social distancing, our prayer group is meeting via Zoom. Email if you need a Zoom invite.
MENDING THE SOUL
At DSCC, Mending the Soul (MTS) support groups are small groups for women who wish to receive support and help with recovery from their experiences of sexual, physical, verbal (emotional), spiritual abuse and abuse from neglect. The group works through the Mending the Soul Workbook which is a complement to the book Mending the Soul: Understanding and Healing Abuse by Steven Tracy. In the group the nature and effects of abuse are discussed but the group also provides a Christ-centered, biblically based model for support towards healing and recovery from abuse.
To sign up for our next group (they begin in January & September), or to get more information about joining, please click the button below to email one of our leaders.
This group is for anyone who has lost someone close to them. This is a professional produced curriculum which is used by over 5,000 churches world wide. You will learn how to cope with your loss from a practical Christian viewpoint. You will find comfort from one-another and from God. GriefShare deals with questions such as:
Why am I feeling this way?
Will I ever get over this?
What about Heaven?
We will begin each session with a video followed by a discussion facilitated by someone who has been through the fog of grief that you are going through. Perry Harris and Carol Melton facilitate the group.
GriefShare meets on Thursdays at 6:30pm in Room 107 in the Spring and Fall. The 13 week sessions begin in January & September. Everyone is welcome to join.
surrendering the secret
Surrendering the Secret is a Bible study for women who are looking for healing from abortion. We want to help you find hope and freedom in Christ!
Do you have the same secret? God already knows. Come to Him for the great exchange. The experience will change you forever.
Please contact us if you are interested in joining us.
Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before. You don't have to go through it alone!
DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:
A Seminar with Experts
During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video.
A Support Group with Focus
After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.
DivorceCare meets on Sunday afternoons at Desert Springs and is led by Bill & Billie LeCompte'.
