Senior Adults

Creating a caring Christian community of love & support while enriching the spiritual lives of older adults.

Worship & Sunday Mornings

Saturday Night Worship
6:00 p.m. in the Chapel (304 South Main Street)     

This is a "come as you are" service. Dress is casual. The service reflects the worship style of DUMC, recast in an informal gathering and contemporary music. Communion is served the first Saturday of each month.

Sunday Worship Services
8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary

While we honor the traditional liturgy of the Church and the style of worship remains formal, we link the “old, old story” to the present day stories we are living. 

The sacrament of Holy Communion is always celebrated at our 8:00 a.m. service and is part of our 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services on the first Sunday of every month.

Large Print Bulletins & Hearing Devices

Both are available for all Sunday worship services; simply visit the Welcome Center in the Gathering Space.

Sunday Shuttle Bus

Complimentary bus service is provided to and from both The Pines and Williams Place in time for the 9:30 a.m. service or Sunday School. No reservations are required - simply be at the door of the lobby at 9:00 a.m. A step stool is provided to assist with getting on and off the bus.

Support for Seniors

Visitation Program

Our church’s Senior Visitation Team focuses on providing visits to church members who are unable to attend church for a variety of reasons. Members of this team are eager to spend time with folks who need company, friendship, and support. 

If you are interested in having a visitor or serving as one: Dave Alexander 

Legacy

In an effort to preserve the story of our church, we have created the Legacy Project. Trained interviewers meet with church members to create a written document of their life story. One copy is given to the individual and one is kept in the church Library. 

Help us preserve our church history for future generations as an interviewer or interviewee: Mike Kayes

In-home Communion

If you are unable to attend worship service and participate in Holy Communion, Stephen Ministers from the church are happy to bring the elements to you: Mike Preib
