As we broadcast our online service at 10:30 each Sunday morning, a small number of people, masked and safely distanced, may be present in the sanctuary. If you would like to attend, we ask that you sign up ahead of time at the link below so that we know how many to expect. As you enter through the main doors into the lower narthex, a deacon will take your temperature. A mask will be available if you do not have your own, and you can sanitize your hands with the touchless dispenser. The pastor and the lay leader will speak without masks, so we ask that you take a seat at least 20 feet from the pulpit and lectern. There is a television screen in the sanctuary where you will be able to see the same screen our online worshipers see at home, including the hymn recordings.
Our next outdoor service will be a Blessing of the Animals! On Sunday afternoon at 3:00 October 18 in the parking lot next to the sanctuary, you are invited to come with your pet, livestock, or stuffed animal for a brief service: a reading from Scripture and prayer of blessing from the pastor, and a song sung by a soloist, Soren Ashmall, all safely distanced and outdoors. Even if you don't have an animal to bring, or cannot transport your pet elephant, you are welcome to come and see members of your church family face-to-face. In case of bad weather, we will try again the next week.
If you would like some prayer time in the sanctuary, but have concerns about gathering with other people during the pandemic, you may sign up for a time to have the sanctuary to yourself.
All of our worship services are available on our YouTube channel. If you prefer to read sermons rather than hear them, manuscripts are available by clicking on the link on the right side of this page.
Due to technical difficulties, we could not integrate the Children's time into the rest of the service, so it is a separate video, here:
The worship service is streamed live on YouTube and Facebook at 10:30 a.m. Eastern time each Sunday.
DPC has formed a Virtual Walking Team to raise awareness of mental illness and raise funds for the important work of NAMI MC, the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Montgomery County, MD. During the pandemic, NAMI's services are needed more than ever.
Our goal is $3,500. We are at 46% as of September 24, 2020. We only have over 2 weeks left to reach our goal.
Please JOIN OUR DPC TEAM by registering to "walk" with us (link is below). If you can, please make a donation to a team member on our ROSTER. Donations on this page are fast, secure, and easy. A receipt will be sent to you by email. Darnestown Team Page
All funds raised go directly to NAMI MC for support, education, and advocacy to individuals and families.
Help us help those in need. Thank you from your Darnestown Presbyterian Team.
Previous worship service recordings are available here.
Please help to maintain the church’s financial health during this time by making contributions through our web page or by mail.
