Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place
for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at DVLC.


Fellowship
 

The fellowship activities at Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church (DVLC) include the after service coffee hour, social outings, luncheons, weekly potluck/pizza dinners, W/ELCA (Women of the ELCA) Craft Circle/Quilt Circle, Youth activities, weekly Men's Breakfast, luncheon/dinner groups, and much more.

 

Bible Study

Every Thursday at 1:00 p.m. we have an informal time of study and discussion about the Bible. The pastor leads the group while we learn about God's plan
for us and delve deeper into the Word. Everyone is Welcome!

 

Women of the ELCA (WELCA)

The mission statement of the Women of the ELCA is "to mobilize women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ." Toward that end, the Craft Circle and the Quilt Circle have been meeting almost every week for the purpose of ministry action both locally and internationally.

Our Annual Yuletide Bazaar -

This fundraiser is organized by members of the church's craft ministry, who for 18 years have selected recipients that serve families, women and children, primarily in Clallam County. For the bazaar, dozens of women work January into November to knit, crochet, sew, paint, quilt, bead, bake, and create hundreds of items, including seasonal decorations, kitchen and table linens, clothing, and greeting cards. All crafters are welcome, regardless of church affiliation. All proceeds from the bazaar are donated to community nonprofits. Receiving grants from the most recent bazaar were:
Clallam Mosaic

Peninsula Behavioral Health

First Teacher

Sequim Community Aid

Forks Abuse Program

North Olympic Foster Parent Association

Voices for Veterans

First Step Family Support Centers

Captain Joseph House Foundation

Healthy Families of Clallam County

the Olympic Medical Center Sequim-based Cancer Center Patient Navigator

This year's event will be Saturday, Nov. 17. For more information about the craft group and the bazaar, see https://www.facebook.com/dungenessvalleyyuletidebazaar/.
 

The Quilt Circle made and shipped 24 quilts, 20 school kits, and 26 layettes this year for distribution by Lutheran World Relief. The Prayer Shawl Circle, made about 60 shawls to comfort those who are suffering. In addition, the quilters have quilted and sent 220 quilts to the Salvation Army.

We are active in the Olympic Cluster of the Southwest Washington Synod, and joined other congregations in our synod for Bible study and faith celebrations.
