1“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
5“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
9“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command. 15I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. 16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. 17This is my command: Love each other.
18“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’

Party Like It's Twenty19
May 19 | 7-8:45 PM | Sprecher Road Campus
This past year has been crazy for all of us. Specifically for our students. We have been meeting inside as separate small groups for a WHOLE SCHOOL YEAR. With warm weather just over the horizon, we will be getting outside for our end-of-the-year party! We are calling it "Party Like It's Twenty19". This will be a time of connection, music, games and a whole lot of fun. Whether it's your first time or last time joining us, you won't want to miss it!
Women's Bible Study
May 20, June 17 & July 22 | 6:30-8 PM | Sprecher Road Campus
As we look at the lives of three women of the Bible—Sarah, Rahab and Esther—we’ll discover how trying to solve problems in our own way doesn’t usually work out well, how God uses His unimaginable resources with the most unlikely people, how God is even in charge of world events and so much more.
Mission Market began out of a desire to love the people of Haiti, one of our global partners. Eli is from Haiti and a member of our DCC church family – his father recently passed away leaving a partially constructed home and no money to finish it. We are grateful to be able to use sales from Mission Market to help with these costs!
Keep Mission Market in mind for Mother’s Day and graduation gifts. You can be a part of Eli’s story, as well as others, by making a purchase through Mission Market.
