Where do I park?
Along the two main roads that intersect in front of the church - Main Street and Concord Road.
In public lots behind the row of businesses on Main Street. The access to these lots is off of Jackson Street.
Further down Concord Road in lots on the Davidson College campus. One is on your left as you travel away from the church (due east). The other is further down on Baker Drive.
By the public library and on Lorimer Road.
Please be aware that Davidson Police issue parking citations for vehicles that are illegally parked. Many of the parking spaces in Davidson are marked as two-hour spaces.
Please do not park in the CVS parking lot. They will ticket or tow.
Where do I go when I get there?
From Concord Road, you can come into the building from two side doors. Upon entering, you will see stairs. If you go up a half flight, you will be on the Main Floor, where you will find access to the Sanctuary, Chapel, and church offices. You will be entering the Sanctuary from either side of the chancel (the front of the church).
If you go down the stairs from the Concord Road doors, you will go to the Ground Floor, where you will find the nurseries for infants and toddlers, as well as the Old Fellowship Hall. A handicap-accessible ramp is located at the side entrances. It leads to the Ground Floor. An elevator is also available should you need it.
The main entrance to the Sanctuary is off of Main Street (Highway 115). You will see a set of three double doors that face the Davidson College quadrangle. There are large steps leading to the doors and a handicap-accessible ramp to the right of the steps. When you enter, you will be in the narthex – the church lobby – directly facing the pulpit. An usher or greeter will be there if you need assistance or have questions.
The main entrance to the Chapel is also off of Main Street (Route 115). It is smaller than the main entrance to the Sanctuary, and its doors directly face Main Street.
Many of our Sunday school classes are held in the Congregation House at 218 Concord Road. It is diagonally across the street from the church.
What time do I need to arrive?
Services begin at 8:30 a.m, 9:45 a.m, and 11:00 a.m. You should plan to arrive ten minutes early.
What’s the dress code?
There is no set dress code. Come as you are. You will see a variety of clothing styles, from suits and dresses to blue jeans and t-shirts.
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.
