Welcome to Davidson!
Greetings in Christ! You might have heard about us even before you arrived on Davidson's campus. We’re a group of friends who gather on Monday nights to talk about Scripture, hang out, eat homemade baked goods, pray for one another, and sing our hearts out. We eat dinner off-campus together; go to one another’s plays and poetry slams; and spend a fall weekend hiking in Montreat, NC. We also look out for one another and consider each other friends.
Some of us got involved in this fellowship because we come from a Presbyterian background, but many of us are not at all. Some have made their lives all about following Jesus; others are still seeking. Some cook a mean dish of spicy beans and rice, and some bust out guitar, mandolin, and banjo all in the same set of worship music. All of us love each other, and all of us want to welcome you too.
So come and hang out with us at the DCPC Student Center on Monday nights from 7-8pm. Bring your questions, bring your doubts—we welcome them all in the name of Jesus!
Grace and peace,
Associate Pastor for Campus and Youth Ministry
What is Westminster Fellowship?
Join us on Monday nights from 7-8pm in our DCPC Student Lounge for singing, delicious baked goods, prayer, and reading Scripture! We join as friends for fellowship and welcome all newcomers. Come see what we're about; we're also known to sneak off to CookOut, Summit, or any other fine dining around Davidson afterward!
Bread for the Journey
· Are you looking for group that loves to explore Scripture every week?
· Do you find yourself yearning for chicken, tofu, or beef stir fry around 12:15pm on Tuesdays?
· Have you always wanted to ask College Chaplain Rob Spach about the meaning of life?
Well, you should join Bread for the Journey! We’re a campus Bible study that meets to discuss the Gospel lectionary text with delicious food and sparkling conversation. Come to the seminar room just around the corner from the Information Desk at Alvarez Union on Tuesdays from 12:15-1:15pm. Other campus clergy celebrities include Karen Soos (Catholic), Elizabeth Marie-Melchionna (Episcopalian), Ashley Thomas (Methodist), and Andrew Scales (Presbyterian, what-WHAT?!).
DCPC Student Center
Snacks. Couches. Silence. The DCPC Student Center is arguably the greatest room in North Carolina (second only to Amelie’s Café in Charlotte), and is open 24/7 for Davidson College students. Come up to our patio just around the corner from the outside of our Sanctuary, and you’ll find you can access this nerd paradise with your CatCard.
We have Cheerwine. We have itty-bitty Snickers candy bars. We have those peanut-butter cheese cracker things that Rev. Scales doesn’t like, but seem to get eaten up all the same. We also have a bathroom that is equidistant from Alvarez Union and Summit Coffee. You should come.
DCPC has worship every Sunday morning at 8:30 in Lingle Chapel and 11:00 in the Sanctuary. We sing, we pass the peace, we preach, we baptize, we eat Communion. Jesus might show up. What’s not to like?
DCPC families and DC students can sign up to “adopt each other” for the year. Families invite their adopted student over for meals and provide a family away from home. Contact Donna Hatfield for more information.
Lingle Chapel is open 24/7 for prayer, worship, or personal reflection. The main entrance, which faces Main Street in Davidson, is always unlocked. There are Bibles, hymn books, and a piano in the chapel. A special note from Rev. Scales to the student who practices five bars of the exact same praise song every week for at least two hours: I will find you.
