Our Mission & Vision
At David’s, our vision and mission are to help connect people to faith
Honoring our vision statement and listening to our still-speaking God, we declare ourselves to be open and affirming. With God’s grace we are a congregation on a journey that includes all persons, embracing differences of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, age, and mental and physical ability, as well as racial, ethnic, or socio-economic background. We welcome all to share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, sacraments, responsibilities, and blessings of participation in our congregation.

Plan Your Visit
We worship in person every Sunday at 10:00am (masks are required and social distancing is encouraged). We alternate each week between traditional and contemporary worship. Our pastor, Rev. James Semmelroth Darnell, or a guest preacher delivers the sermon.
What to Expect
During traditional services, the congregation sings selections from the New Century Hymnal, and the organist and chancel choir inspire us with anthems and other musical offerings. Enjoy contemporary music from the Come BeLoved Band on contemporary Sundays. Regardless of the style of worship, you will find a warm welcome no matter where you are on life’s journey. We dwell on God’s love and are an open and affirming congregation.
Children & Youth Ministry
David’s UCC offers Sunday School for children and youth from pre-school through 12th grade. Children’s classes take place during the worship hour; youth Sunday School meets Sunday nights at 7:00. Sunday School follows the school year calendar.
