Hello DPC

COVID-19 Update

As a Precaution, all events and meetings at Deltona Presbyterian Church are canceled effective immediately until further notice.

The DPC Session will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates by email, website notices and telephone calls for those who do not have access to the internet.

God is in control and will provide a resolution as he does in all situations. God also expects his flock to make wise decisions and to take care of our family. Canceling on site engagement is a proactive step.

If there are any questions or a need for assistance please call the church office, reach out to a session member or Pastor John. Phone numbers are located on the back of the bulletin every week.

Please read your email, check the website, pick up phone calls or listen to your voicemails for updates. Also, check on each other. We all have a responsibility to love each other and stay in touch.


From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless needy children in more than 100 countries around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Operation Christmas Child is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization run by Franklin Graham since 1970. 

You could start with a quality “wow” item such as a stuffed animal, soccer ball with pump, or clothing outfit that will capture the child’s attention the instant he or she opens the box. Lined paper and school supplies are particularly appreciated.

However, some items are NOT permitted: Candy; toothpaste; gum; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; seeds; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers.

Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and family photo in the box, which is due on Sunday, November 18, 2018.
