What to expect

when you attend on Sunday morning

You may be wondering...

Are you Inclusive?

Yes, our congregation is comprised of all gender identities, sexual orientations, economic and educational backgrounds, races, ages, and physical abilities. If you’re human, you are welcome here.

Will I be Introduced?

No. We don't do public introductions. You will be welcomed one-on-one, and it's up to you to decide how you would like to be involved in a way that is meaningful to you.

Can kids stay in the sanctuary?

Of course! Children and babies are always welcome in worship. The back of the sanctuary is perfect for wiggly kids! Rocking chairs are available for nursing mothers or new parents, where you will be able to see and hear everything clearly. Also, childcare is available in the nursery.

What do I wear?

Whatever you want!!

Dress is casual and varied at DCC. Everyone is welcome to wear whatever feels most comfortable.

how does Sunday School work?

10:30 service for kids

Each Sunday, you will need to check your child into their age-specific classroom just off the playground. Please take a moment to do this before the 10:30 service begins. We ask you to give us all relevant info (allergies, special needs, who will pick them up), and the best way to get a hold of you should the need arise.

At the end of service you will be greeted by a volunteer and asked to sign out your child. 

For kids 5 and under, it's always nice to bring a little snack, and a familiar water bottle for them to use. We have diapers and extra clothes should accidents happen, but you are welcome to bring extras in to leave with your child.

Who's involved in Sunday school?

Every Sunday morning we provide a safe environment for kids from birth through sixth grade where they can learn about God and connect with each other.

Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry, and it’s an honor to serve with each and every one of them as they love our kids each week! Every volunteer who leads in the Kids Ministry has had a background check, is CPR and First Aid certified, and is trained to handle emergencies.

We also have childcare providers on staff who care for our youngest kiddos, and they go through the same trainings and certifications as the volunteers, in addition to trainings in abuse prevention and reporting. All of us are committed to making the ministry a safe, relevant, and fun environment for your kids.
