TWO DISTINCT WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Sundays at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m.
Sunday morning services offer a traditional worship experience in our main sanctuary (most easily accessible through the doors along Main Street) accompanied by beautiful music. Holy Communion is offered every week at the 8:00 a.m. service and the first Sunday of every month at all services. Children are always welcome in worship (children's bulletins and colored pencils are provided), but childcare for the very young is available during all services. Large print bulletins and hearing devices are available at the Welcome Center.
Sunday School classes for both children and adults are offered at 9:30 a.m. Click here for the Fall 2018 Sunday Morning Schedule.
Saturday at 6:00 p.m.
Saturday Night Worship is a casual, come-as-you-are, worship experience offered in our Chapel (304 South Main Street). This service features a smaller, intimate gathering, with a focus on modern musical expression. This is an interactive service, with opportunities to engage through dialogue, lighting of candles, writing on chalkboards, and journaling. Children are always welcome in worship (they even have their own "doodle" table where their hands can stay busy), but childcare for the very young is provided in the Molly McKay House, just next door. Questions? Contact Rev. Sarah Belles.
No matter when, how, or where you might visit, we look forward to welcoming you in God’s love.
RELEVANT WORSHIP & INSPIRING MUSIC
We plan each worship message and experience with the goal of adding spiritual value and hope to your life through Jesus Christ. We want you to go home inspired and lifted up from your time with us.
Although the Senior Pastor preaches most weekends, other clergy preach on a rotation throughout the year, which offers slightly varied delivery styles. If studying a particular sermon series, study guides are often provided so that you can stay engaged throughout the week.
Sunday morning sermons are supported by a comprehensive music experience, featuring select vocalists, one or more choirs, and/or instrumentalists ranging in age from preschool to adults.
The music on Saturday nights features more contemporary arrangements supported, most often, by an acoustic guitar.
SOMETHING JUST FOR KIDS
Childcare is available at all services on Sunday morning. Children ages three years through Grade 5 can attend Sunday classes at 9:30 a.m.
Frequently Asked Questions
What will the worship service be like?
The worship services begin as you enter the Chapel or Sanctuary, greet one another, and prepare your heart and mind through music and centering time. While all four services follow the same liturgy, each has a distinct character. All bring a traditional worship experience combined with beautiful music, and each service lasts about one hour.
What should I wear?
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. Youth are often in jeans and t-shirts.
Where do I park?
Visitor, senior, and handicapped parking spaces are designated in our main parking lot off Main Street. Parking Lot Greeters (identifiable by their orange vests) will be on hand to assist you in locating a nearby space. At the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services, Davidson police officers are on duty to assist motorists with entering, exiting, and parking in and around the DUMC campus.
Those in need of an elevator should enter through the Church Office entrance. The elevator is located directly ahead, across from the restrooms. You will arrive directly in front of an entrance to the Sanctuary.
Where do my children go?
Children are always welcome in worship. Children’s bulletins and colored pencils are available on the name tag tables outside the Sanctuary. During the school year, Sunday morning classes for ages three through Grade 5 are available at 9:30 a.m. Click here for the Fall 2018 Sunday Morning Class Schedule. A staffed nursery for infants and toddlers is available during all three worship services.
Likewise for the Saturday evening service, all children are encouraged to worship together with their family. A table with activities is provided for children who prefer to color, etc. Childcare is available for infants through age four at the Molly McKay House, just adjacent to the Chapel.
Do I have to be a member to take Communion?
Everyone is welcome at the communion table, whether members of DUMC or not, children and adults alike. 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.
