We hope you will visit Decatur UCC and let us get to know you better. It is not always easy to walk into a new church, but we invite you to take a chance on us. We would love to meet you, and we think you will be pleased with the Spirit that you find among us. What can you expect when you join us on Sunday morning?
Here are a few questions that most visitors have about our church:
What time does worship start and how long is the service?
Decatur UCC offers an opportunity to worship God each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. The service typically lasts between 60 and 75 minutes.
The experience of worship at Decatur UCC is as diverse as the community that worships with us. Our worship can be described as convergent – that is, we bring together elements from a variety of liturgical traditions, diverse musical styles, creative ritual, and artistic expression in drama, poetry, and dance.
The form of our worship could be described as “traditional,” but the content is relevant to the day and to our contexts. Our worship services reflect the variety of our backgrounds and aim to connect with our contemporary culture in addition to drawing on the traditions of the church.
We see worship as intentional time to connect with God and with each other; to bring our faith to the issues of the world; and to hear the call to serve.
Who are the people who worship at Decatur UCC?
Our congregation can be described in one word: diverse. You will see all of God’s human creation at Decatur UCC on Sunday morning, including young and old, women and men, gay and straight, singles and families, and folks of a variety of races and genders.
What should I wear?
Our attire on Sunday morning is as varied as our worship style! You will see a bit of everything: people in their “Sunday best,” folks in “business casual” and those in jeans and t-shirts. You’ll even find some of us in shorts during Atlanta’s hot summer.
Most importantly, though, we look forward to seeing you, not what you’re wearing.
