Join a LifeGroup
One of the best ways to get connected at Door Creek Church is by joining a LifeGroup. A LifeGroup is a small group of people who gather regularly, build friendships and serve together. Many groups discuss questions from the weekend message. Significant life change happens when people study God’s Word and apply it to real life.

Books for Schenk Elementary - providing needed, quality reading material for kids in our Madison school system. Scholarship Program - sending under resourced kids to a Christ-centered soccer camp. Habitat Home Build - funding a build with Habitat for Humanity to provide a safe home for a family in need right here in our city. High School Mission Trip - supporting the Door Creek Church high school students who are traveling to share the love of Christ. First Aid Tent at Brat Fest - sponsoring a First Aid tent for those who get sick or injured at the event.
