FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where do I park?
Visitor, senior, and handicapped parking spots are designated in our main parking lot off Main Street. When that lot is full, Parking Lot Greeters are on hand to assist you in locating a nearby parking space. At the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services, our local Davidson police officers are on duty to assist motorists with entering, exiting, and parking in and around the DUMC campus.
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. "Mortals look on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7).
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.
Where do my children go during the worship service?
All children may attend worship with their parents, though our Children's Ministry provides a staffed nursery for infants and toddlers, and exciting Sunday School experiences for preschoolers 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.

For the Saturday evening service, child care is available for infants through age four, all others are encouraged to worship together with their family. A table with activities is provided in the Chapel for children who prefer to color, etc.
