Can I take Communion, even if I am not a member of DCPC?
Anyone who has been baptized is welcome to participate in the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. You don’t have to be Presbyterian or even a member of a church. There is no age requirement. At DCPC, we have communion the first Sunday of each month. The elements (bread and grape juice) usually are brought to you by communion servers as you sit in your pew. You can eat as soon as you are served. You may put your used communion cups in the holding racks directly in front of you in your pew. On occasion, we serve Communion by intinction. If this method is used, the elements will be offered in two or three places at the front of the sanctuary. Celebrants will tear off a piece of bread (or choose a gluten-free cracker) and dip it into a cup of juice. You may eat it immediately or when you return to your seat.
Whom should I contact if I have other questions?
The church office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. Call 704-892-5641. The office staff will be happy to answer your question or direct you to someone who can. Or, send an email to one of our pastors. Staff emails can be found by clicking here. On Sunday mornings, an usher or greeter will be happy to assist you if you have a question.
