Children are welcome in worship!

Children’s Chapel is an interactive worship experience for Pre-K to 2nd grades. Children engage the Bible stories through a variety of activities: storytelling, music, prayer, arts and movement. Children’s Chapel is meaningful worship at the same time that it is preparation for worship with the wider congregation.

Children leave for Children’s Chapel following the Children’s Moment in the Sanctuary. Please check children in at the check-in area located on the Main level, outside of the nursery. Check out will be in Scott Chapel after worship.

Nursery and Toddlers continue with professional caregivers during the worship hour in Bradley Building Rooms 160 and 165. Check out our nursery brochure for more information.

Involvement in Worship
Liturgists: Children 2nd through 5th grade can serve as liturgists for the worship service. Specific child-led services for fall 2018 will be September 9, November 4th, and 5:30 Christmas Eve service. If you are interested in helping in any of these services, please contact Rev. Emily Wilmesherr.

Greeters and Ushers: We are always happy to welcome new greeters and ushers to the team. If your family would like to serve in either area, please contact Dudley Larus, at

Music: The children’s choirs provide music for Sunday worship about once a month and for special services (i.e., Easter, Christmas Eve) throughout the year. Check out the Children’s Music page for more details. If you would like to get connected to the Children’s Music Ministry at DPC, please contact Lori McMahan, at

Acolytes: Children in 3rd grade and older are invited to be acolytes during the morning worship. These children light and extinguish the candles at the front of the sanctuary. If your child would like to participate, please contact Lynn Evan, at
