The 8:30am (9:00am Summer hours from June through August) Traditional Worship service tends to be a little more formal in its liturgy and feel and lasts for a little more than an hour.  The DCC Chamber and Chancel choirs sing at this service approximately every 3 of 5 Sundays.  Printed bulletins are used to lead the congregation through worship.  Children and babies are always welcome in worship!  Communion is served the first Sunday of each month.  Upon arrival, you will be provided a bulletin that outlines the liturgy, including when to stand or sit as well as other instructions.  Inside the bulletin, you’ll find the announcements that highlight upcoming events and news.  You are welcome to sit anywhere you’d like.

THE FLOW OF THE SERVICE

  • The Prelude

    The Prelude involves music, typically on the organ, that signals to us the start of worship and provides a moment to draw ourselves together as a community.

  • ENTRY OF THE CHRIST CANDLE

    The Entry of the Christ candle is a reminder that Christ’s light shines brightly in our midst.

  • WORDS OF WELCOME

    The Pastor welcomes everyone to worship and invites us to center ourselves in a few moments of silence.

  • CALL TO WORSHIP

    The Call to Worship draws our attention and spirit into the movement of God in our midst.  The Call to Worship is often responsive and led by the lay worship leader.

  • HYMN

    We join together in song, often singing music from the Presbyterian Hymnal.  The music connects us to our rich history and heritage as a people of God.  Music is a response that gathers the whole self in prayer.

    Confession is a communal act where we express our brokenness in both our personal and common life together.  Following confession is an “Assurance of Forgiveness,” a time where we are reminded that our God is a God of love, forgiveness and grace.

  • ANTHEM

    An anthem is often shared with us by the DCC Chancel or Chamber choirs.  Let the music speak to your soul.

  • SCRIPTURE

    During this time, the Pastor welcomes everyone and shares highlights of upcoming events, classes or items of importance.

    The Passing of the Peace is our time to share the peace of Christ with one another through handshakes or hugs.  It is an ancient practice that supports our bonds with one another.

  • THE OFFERING

    The Offering provides an opportunity for the congregation to financially support the ministry and work of Davis Community Church.  It is a gift from the fruits of our lives that enables us to meet the needs of our community and world.  Music, often an anthem, is played during the offering.

The 10:30am Contemporary Worship service tends to be less formal than the first service in its liturgy and feel and lasts for an hour and 20 minutes.  The DCC Chamber and Chancel choirs sing at this service approximately every 2 of 5 Sundays.  Powerpoint is used in place of printed bulletins are used to lead the congregation through worship.  Sunday School for children and youth runs concurrent with the service, though children start out in worship and depart after the “Discovery Time” (a sharing time with the pastor up front).  Childcare for Infants through age 5 is available starting at 10:15am.  Communion is served weekly.
