Celebrate Our Birthday with Us!

Community, Event

Join us this coming Sunday as we celebrate DCC’s second birthday! It was two years ago that a small group of people began praying about planting a new Jesus-loving, Bible-believing, Gospel-centered church in the heart of downtown Seattle. In the last two years many have moved downtown. God has gone before us in supernatural ways. Our communities have multiplied, and people have met Jesus. We have a lot to celebrate!

Gathering Time & Location

Sunday, April 7 @ 10:00AM
AMC Pacific Place 11, 600 Pine St, Seattle 98101

Downtown parking is free on Sunday. Please allow time to secure street parking. We offer 3 hour validation to the Pacific Place Parking garage for families and folks with special needs. (Please try to secure street parking first.)

Children

Children of all ages are welcome to sit in the main gathering with their parent or caretaker. Cornerstone Kids is provided for children ages one year to six years old. All of the volunteers are well-known, trained and have undergone a thorough background check.

Our Prayer for the Years To Come

It is our prayer that God would use DCC to sink the roots of the good news of Jesus Christ deep into the heart of this great city. We invite you to join us as this story, His story, continues to be written. “O Lord, [we] have heard the report of you, and your work, O Lord, do I fear. In the midst of the years revive it; in the midst of the years make it known…” (Hab 3:2)

We’re Moving on April 1st!

News | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

By the great grace of God, after much prayer and diligent searching, we have located a new center city gathering space for our next season of life together, following Jesus.

Starting Sunday, April 1st at 10am, we will relocate our Sunday gatherings to the AMC Theatres in Pacific Place on 6th and Pine.

This is a significant answer to countless prayers over the last five months. Please take some time to thank our gracious and kind Father for providing so abundantly.

Here are some of the details:
  • Space: AMC has various theater sizes up to 600 seats. Our initial theater will seat 225.
  • Kids: The kids will have a cool, unique, safe, corner set aside, with floor-to-ceiling windows, in which to learn about and grow in Jesus (and easy bathroom access!).
  • Time: We will keep our 10AM, Sunday morning, gathering time.
  • Storage: AMC has agreed to allow us to store our gear on-site, saving us countless dollars and hours.
  • Baptism: AMC has also agreed to allow us to hold baptisms. That’s no small deal, as that involves them allowing us to bring 400 gallons of water into one of their theaters.
  • Post-Service: There are countless options for places to eat, connect and shop following our gathering.
  • Parking: Though many will be able to walk, there is ample street parking within a two block radius that is free on Sundays.
  • Transit: Pacific Place is close to all transit lines, including the LightRail and SLU trolley.
  • Location: Pacific Place is also a well-known landmark, therefore very strategic, right in the heart of the city. We’ll also be closer to major downtown population centers.
  • Price: All of our research indicated we would be paying 2-4x’s what we’re paying now if we were to move. Yet, at AMC we’ll be paying only $100/Sunday more than we’re paying right now. Amazing.
  • That said, we now get to celebrate our first birthday on April 1st as a newly forming church at a new location. This is a huge providential win for us.

    What do we do from here?

    First, as I mentioned above, please take some time to thank our great God for providing so abundantly, in His perfect timing.
    Second, please spread the word regarding our move! The best way to make this move known is via word-of-mouth.
    Third, please continue to ask Jesus to go before us as there are many details to work out. This is no small move, particularly amidst an already busy season.

    “I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever. I will thank you forever, because you have done it. I will wait for your name for it is good, in the presence of the godly.” Psalm 52:8-9

    Happy Birthday, DCC! We’re having a party.

    City Life, News | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

    You’re invited to your party.

    On Sunday, April 1st, we are celebrating our first birthday together as a newly-forming, Jesus-following people in the heart of this great city. Jesus’ church is a people, not a place, so this is our birthday. We’re not celebrating the planting of an organization, but the planting of the gospel in this city that is resulting in a new, redeemed, forgiven people for Jesus – us. Yet, this isn’t about us and what we have done, but about Him and what He is doing.

    We exist to build a great city through
    the gospel of Jesus Christ for the glory of God.

    A great city is one in which Jesus is loved, sin is forgiven, lives are transformed, mercy is extended, hope is planted, justice is worked, and joy is rampant. All of this points to the Great City that is to come (Rev 21:9-27) and is only, ultimately, made possible through the gospel of Jesus. We’re already seeing this take place in small measure and it is beautiful in God’s sight.

    We don’t know the future,
    but we know the One who holds the future
    – and He’s all that really matters.

    At the end of our lives, we’ll only wish we had trusted Him more and loved others better. While it is (very!) exciting to think of all that Jesus may do in and through us, let’s not make those things the standard of our success. Let’s work, pray, love, serve, live, and share the gospel as though it is all up to us (because it is!)…while trusting it is all up to Him (because it is!). Somewhere in the middle of all that we get the joy of partnering with God in His purposes and He gets the glory.

    But, don’t forget. Jesus is our success.
    Jesus is our righteousness.Jesus is our hope.
    Jesus is our celebration. Jesus is our joy.
    Jesus is our salvation. Jesus is our redemption.
    Jesus is our Shepherd. Jesus is our King.
    Jesus is our God.

    So, you’re invited to your own party as we celebrate Jesus’ work in, among and through us. From the beginning of this church, we have asked Him to do what only He can, so that the city will not confuse our work for His. Let’s continue to trust Him for the same in the year(s) ahead.

    Join us on Sunday April 1st, 10:00am, at the AMC Theatres in Pacific Place (6th & Pine) for a family-style celebration. Be sure to invite someone to see what Jesus is doing. No Cornerstone Kids provided.

    “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Eph 3:20-21
