1The word of the Lord that came to Micah of Moresheth during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah—the vision he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.
2Hear, you peoples, all of you, listen, earth and all who live in it, that the Sovereign Lord may bear witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple.
3Look! The Lord is coming from his dwelling place; he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth.
4The mountains melt beneath him and the valleys split apart, like wax before the fire, like water rushing down a slope.
5All this is because of Jacob’s transgression, because of the sins of the people of Israel. What is Jacob’s transgression? Is it not Samaria? What is Judah’s high place? Is it not Jerusalem?
6“Therefore I will make Samaria a heap of rubble, a place for planting vineyards. I will pour her stones into the valley and lay bare her foundations.
7All her idols will be broken to pieces; all her temple gifts will be burned with fire; I will destroy all her images. Since she gathered her gifts from the wages of prostitutes, as the wages of prostitutes they will again be used.”
8Because of this I will weep and wail; I will go about barefoot and naked. I will howl like a jackal and moan like an owl.
9For Samaria’s plague is incurable; it has spread to Judah. It has reached the very gate of my people, even to Jerusalem itself.
10Tell it not in Gath; weep not at all. In Beth Ophrah roll in the dust.
11Pass by naked and in shame, you who live in Shaphir. Those who live in Zaanan will not come out. Beth Ezel is in mourning; it no longer protects you.
12Those who live in Maroth writhe in pain, waiting for relief, because disaster has come from the Lord, even to the gate of Jerusalem.
13You who live in Lachish, harness fast horses to the chariot. You are where the sin of Daughter Zion began, for the transgressions of Israel were found in you.
14Therefore you will give parting gifts to Moresheth Gath. The town of Akzib will prove deceptive to the kings of Israel.
15I will bring a conqueror against you who live in Mareshah. The nobles of Israel will flee to Adullam.
16Shave your head in mourning for the children in whom you delight; make yourself as bald as the vulture, for they will go from you into exile.
As a part of this year’s School Supply Drive, we have the opportunity to gather school supplies for our local school partners! These supplies will go to our school partners to distribute to families who are under-resourced and assist teachers to meet those needs. Collect anything on the list linked below and drop off the school supplies at your campus on Sunday, August 8 or 15!
We also need volunteers to help us open boxes, count and sort the school supplies for delivery to our school partners. Use this form to sign up to volunteer on Tuesday, August 17!

Giving Hope is a faith-based support group for people who love someone with addiction or mental illness. We gather together to share our struggles, how God helps us get through the ups and downs and spend time in prayer for each other.

Baptism & Swim Night

Baptisms will begin at 7:30 pm with a time to swim following. If you are interested in being baptized, register for the online baptism class and fill out the baptism application. If you are interested in the swim night following the baptism service, please RSVP.
I SAID YES
If you said YES to Jesus today, let us know! Text "isaidyes" to 608.292.3456.
Check out the resources we have to connect you to ministries, to care for physical and spiritual needs, spiritual growth resources and more—all in one place.
Join a Group
Connect with others, and grow closer to God. Groups are key to building meaningful relationships and growing closer to God. Most of our groups are sermon-based, discussing and digging deeper into the previous weekend’s message. We have groups that meet online or in-person.
We believe that one of the ways to become more like Jesus is to serve. We also believe that one of the ways to grow deeper in your relationship with others involves not only serving others but serving others together. There are many opportunities to put your gifts and passions into action by serving others at DCC.
