We have resumed our worship services, but to maintain social distancing, we will have one service at 9:15 and another at 10:45. We have asked people with last names beginning with A-McG to attend one, and for McH-Z to attend the other. We'll rotate the groups each week. To get information regarding which group is in which service this week, check your weekly email, email our office, or sign up for updates below. We are not providing childcare for either service yet. Facemasks are encouraged. Entrance and exit will be directed by deacons so they remain safe and orderly. Our first service will be livestreamed and left online for anyone who is not comfortable attending yet.

The mission of our Next Generation ministry is to point our covenant children from birth to the hope found only in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We desire to come alongside parents as they seek to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Safe, compassionate, Christ-exalting care for our children is a top priority for Decatur Presbyterian.
