Visitor's Parking

You will find several spaces in our parking lot designated for visitors. Please take advantage of these spaces and then enter the church via the western doors to enter the sanctuary.

Please note that we do have multiple buildings on our campus. If you are not looking for the sanctuary, then please download a campus map to help guide you.

Warm Welcome

As you enter the doors you will be greeted by a member of the congregation. If you let them know that you are visiting they will direct you to our Welcome Center, where a host is available to answer any questions and give directions.

Meaningful Worship Experience

Our staff and lay persons work hard to create a meaningful worship experience each week. Our worship services are a traditional-style service at 8:15 am and 11 am (Sept.-June)  Our Summer Worship Services (July & August ONLY) are Sundays at 9:30 am and Wednesdays at 7:00 pm.  at  Here is what you can expect in worship:

Quality Sermons

Both of our pastors, David and Amanda, seek to provide sermons that are understandable, relevant, and meaningful for every person in worship.  They preach on a wide range of scriptures and topics throughout the year. Click here to listen to a recent sermon.

Inspiring Music

Damascus UMC has a large variety of musical choirs and ensembles that share their gifts throughout the year like bell choirs, puppets, children's choirs, men's and women's choirs and much more! Each Sunday (Sept. - June) at the 8:15 service you will hear an anthem from our youth choir, the Charles Wesley Singers, and at the 11 am  you will hear an anthem from our Adult Chancel Choir. During our Summer Worship Services (July & August only) our combined/summer choir will share music at the 9:30 am service.  Click here to learn more about our Music and Arts Ministry.

Open Communion Table

The United Methodist denomination practices an "open table" for communion, which means that everyone is invited to share in the sacrament. You do not have to be a member of our church or a United Methodist; you do not have to take a class first; you do not have to be a certain age...all of God's children are welcome at the Lord's Table at Damascus UMC. We share communion usually twice a month at both services.

Community Prayer

Maintaining a connection with each other is an important part of community life.  We share in prayer in multiple ways during a worship service. Each week we invite all to join hands and share in the Lord's prayer together. Don't like holding hands? No problem...feel free to offer an elbow instead!


Opportunity for Growth and Learning

Between our two services (Sept.-May), from 9:30-10:30 we have an educational hour for Sunday school and small groups. Classes are available from age 3 through adults. Learn more: Small Groups, Children, Youth
