2016 High School & College Graduates


The goal of the Youth Group is to encourage personal and spiritual growth by reaching non-believing youth through teaching and connecting with Christian Youth, and sharing and respecting the love of God’s Word. DNC Teen Meeting is a meeting of teens to discuss information relevant to their age group, attend outings, and other activities. DNC Teens meet at the church on the third Sunday of each month at 4:00 PM. The 8-13 Youth Group meet to discuss information relevant to their age group, attend outings and other planned activities. This group meets every first Friday of the month at 7:00 pm. This group is not limited to just youth members of the church, but is open to all of the community in an effort to bring young people to Jesus.

Children's Church is held every Sunday except 3rd Sunday. On the 3rd Sunday, the children join their parents in regular service as 3rd Sunday is designated as Youth Sunday. We have a "Sermonette" presented by a member of our youth ministry. After which, we have our "Youth Minister" or a "Guest Youth Minister" deliver the worship message at the 10:30 Service.

Porscha Doyle, Youth Director

Thomas Jerome Boyd Scholarship

Tom Boyd was very instrumental in the political arena in Teaneck and statewide elections. Along with Dr. Lacey and Mr. McNatt, he played an integral role in electing the first black mayor for the town of Teaneck. They were also assigned by the political club to pick qualified leaders of the community to run for the town council, as well as being in charge of their election process in order for them to win.  Tom worked, too, to make Martin Luther King Day a celebrated day of remembrance in Teaneck.  In his later years he worked for the election of State Senator Matthew Feldman and U.S. Senator Bill Bradley.

In Columbia, South Carolina he continued to volunteer and serve others. He focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and was a volunteer and active member of the Jewish Community Center (JCC), thoroughly enjoying the weekly water aerobics classes.

He volunteered over 3400 hours at Palmetto Richland Hospital, including teaching a nutrition class and serving as Chair of the Volunteer Promotion Committee on the Volunteer Auxiliary Board.

Accepting the responsibility for developing young people into leaders, Tom served with the USC Medical Student/Senior Citizen mentoring program, which pairs medical students with elders.  He was an avid supporter of his alma mater and his fraternity, Omega Psi Phi. 

Deadline: Applications must be submitted by Sunday, June 4th, 5 pm.  Presentations of scholarship recipients, Sunday, June 18th at 10:30 a.m. services.
