WELCOME! We’re glad that you are considering coming to dec! Here’s the scoop on what you can expect.

dec offers two Sunday morning services:

  •  8:30 AM
  • 10:30 AM

We encourage you to arrive about 15-30 minutes prior to the service so that our greeters and ushers (the folks with the name tags) can assist you in finding your way around – especially if you are coming with children or need special assistance (i.e. elevator, hearing assistance devices, etc.).

You can enter the building at the front doors from the upper level parking lot or from the lower level parking lot through either of the side doors. An elevator is available to provide access between levels.

An Information booth is located on the upper level, and the folks there will be happy to answer any questions and give you a WELCOME PACKET which provides information about all the programs, events, and services that dec offers.

Babies from 0-2 years old can stay in our nursery, or we also have a parents’ room adjacent to the Worship Center where parents can go with their young ones and still be able to hear the service.

Sunday School is available for children 3 years old – 5th grade during the school year. There is a DEC Kids check in booth located on the lower level where someone can assist you in finding a classroom. Check the website calendar for more information about the Sunday School schedule.

Both of the  services are essentially the same. The worship team leads the singing and then one of the teaching team presents a message.  You will not  be asked to stand up or identify yourself, and you are urged NOT to put any money in the offering basket when it is passed – that is something we do as a church family. However,  you will find communication cards in the back of the seat in front of you, which you are encouraged to fill out. No one will call or visit you, unless you specifically request it. We simply want to know that you were here and pray for you by name.
