As a church we associate with the Empire State Fellowship of Regular Baptist Churches. Throughout the year there are a variety of events bringing churches together from across NY State centered on their fellowship in Christ.
- Men’s Adventure:
Each year DBC participates in the Men’s Adventure which is a weekend Men’s conference held in Binghamton NY at Central Baptist Church. Well known speakers and musical groups encourage and strengthen the men who attend in God’s Word. This is scheduled for the third Friday and Saturday in February each year.
- Ladies Advance:
The Ladies Advance gathers women from across the state in celebration of their savior with the goal of spiritual growth. There are many workshops and main sessions that will both encourage and chalange the attendees in their faith. This is now held in October at First Baptist Church in Johnson City NY.
- Youth Seminars:
Several Youth Seminars are held each spring across the state at participating churches. Thousands of teens participate and are challenged in growth focused workshops. A central theme is used for the main sessions and the teens celebrate their faith in worship and are challenged in their Christian stand with God’s Word.
The ESF holds three conferences throughout the year focused on solid biblical teaching and building networking relationships across the churches of the state. There is a Fall, Winter, and Spring conference that all are welcome to attend. Details and dates will be found in the calendar.
- Holiday Getaway Couples Retreat:
Each December the Holiday Getaway is a good after Christmas gift or vacation. Couples from Empire State Fellowship churches join together at the Radison in Corning to grow in their relationships. Activities are used for fun and growth and the speaker brings biblically centered truth with regard to marriage and living love. Meals are provided and the fellowship is valuable.
