About Our Church

Decorah Covenant Church is a gathering of people of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about following Christ and following Christ together. We believe that God's Word is alive when we live it out in a community of faith.

Motivated by the love of God, the mission of Decorah Covenant Church (DCC) is to share the gospel through a dynamic and flourishing community of faith that is Christ-centered and biblically based in meaningful worship, encourages authentic discipleship, and is empowered by the Spirit for ministries of compassion, mercy, and justice.

Our  beliefs are consistent with many other protestant evangelical bodies.  Like other Evangelical Covenant Churches, we agree that the following Affirmations  should guide our life and mission together:

  • We affirm the centrality of the word of God.
  • We affirm the necessity of the new birth.
  • We affirm a commitment to the whole mission of the church.
  • We affirm the church as a fellowship of believers.
  • We affirm a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit.
  • We affirm the reality of freedom in Christ.

Additional information on these Affirmations can be found at: www.covchurch.org/resources/covenant-affirmations

Many thanks to DCC's Amanda Peterson for her continued work keeping our church library organized and active. Looking for a particular book? Just want to browse the selection? You can now view the church library inventory at our website under the 'Resources' tab. (https://www.decorahcovenant.org/library-corner.)

She has devoted a space on the website (as well as the wall inside the library) to periodically highlight and review books to bring to our attention. Her synopsis of Blood Ransom by Lisa Harris, a story of modern day slave trade, is up now. In addition to her book reviews and library inventory, information on the Racial Righteousness Reading & Discussion Group can be found. Beat the winter blues with an inspiring book!

Here at DCC, we believe that camp experiences are an important part of the spiritual formation of our children and families. Registration for summer camps at Twin Lakes Bible Camp in Manson, Iowa is happening now!

The 2020 Summer Camp Theme is "Marvelous Light". While the battle between light and darkness rages on around us, we have a God-given truth to hold onto: light WILL prevail. It can never be overcome. Step into the light this summer and discover how life in Christ brings victory.

For more information on how to register and apply for financial aid, follow this link: https://www.decorahcovenant.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/DCC-Camp-Fund-2020.pdf

We believe that ALL members of the Body of Christ are important, so we seek to intentionally connect as individual parts in order to strengthen the whole Body of Christ. C3 Tribes are multi-generational small groups that meet twice a month in someone's home for a meal, fellowship, sharing, and prayer. In addition to our regular Tribe gatherings, we have 3-4 Body-Building events each year where everyone gathers for food, fun and fellowship.

January is a GREAT time to join a Tribe if you haven't, or to give Tribes a try for the month without having to make a commitment. Contact the church office (382-1342) if you'd like more information or would like to get connected. January Tribe gatherings will be held on Sunday mornings January 12 and 26 during the CE hour after worship.

NEW RACIAL JUSTICE COMMUNITY GROUP FORMING IN DECORAH. Be a part of forming a new community group focused on combating racism in our community and working towards racial justice. Help us envision the scope of the group, and strategize its structure to most effectively work towards racial equity. This will be a collaborative and informal meeting, designed to assess the needs and interests of local people already doing social justice work, and those new to this work. All interested people are welcome, though the session is especially targeted towards those who would like to commit to ongoing anti-racist work within our community. The racial justice group will meet at 6:30 on Monday, January 6 (epiphany!) at the Decorah Public Library meeting room. Spread the word and let's show up for racial justice!
