From The Elders

At the elders retreat in August, we discussed what we believe should be the core values of DPC. We wish to communicate this to the congregation, and will speak more about it at our AGM this Thursday Oct 27. We would like to have your feedback, and urge you to be present at the meeting. We have inserted in the newsletter this week, a paper on what we decided at the meeting. Please read it.

We need to check that we have your
current contact details for the new Church
Directory. Please visit the table in the Morning Tea area after the service today.
