FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What will the worship service be like?
The worship service begins as you enter the Sanctuary, greet one another, and prepare your heart and mind through music and centering time. While all three worship services follow the same liturgy, each has a distinct character. All bring a traditional worship experience combined with beautiful music.
How long are the worship services?
All of the services typically last about an hour.
What should I wear to DUMC?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. You will see men in suits and ties as well as golf shirts and slacks. You will see women in dresses as well as slacks. “Mortals look on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
Do I have to be a member of DUMC to take Communion?
Everyone is welcome at the communion table, whether members of DUMC or not, kids or adults. Christ invites to his table all who love him, who repent of their sin, and who seek to live in peace with God and one another.
Where do my children go during the worship service?
All children may attend worship with their parents, though our Children’s Ministry provides exciting Sunday School experiences for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary ages through fifth grade. This allows you to get the most from your experience at DUMC while your child has a great time in a safe, friendly, kid-centered environment. Click here for a Fall 2012 Sunday Morning Class Schedule.
