Holiday and Special Services

Throughout the year, DUC holds holiday and special services such as the following:

Christmas -- Advent and Christmas feature a variety of worship services, including Christmas Eve worship at 4pm with a focus on children and a quieter candlelight service at 9pm.

Fat Sunday -- Celebrating in the spirit of Fat Tuesday, our Fat Sunday worship service precedes Ash Wednesday and typically includes music (jazz or bluegrass), followed by brunch downstairs in Fellowship Hall.

Easter -- Beginning with an Ash Wednesday service at 7pm, our Lenten journey includes musical meditations on Wednesdays and leads up to our Maundy Thursday service and Good Friday, on which our pastor typically participates in the ecumenical service held at St. David's Episcopal Church in South Yarmouth, MA.  Easter morning worship begins at 6:00 am on Corporation Beach, in partnership with our friends at Northside Methodist Church, followed by celebratory Easter worship at DUC featuring pipe organ music at 9am and 11am.

Blessing of the Animals -- Held on the Dennis Town Green in front of the church after the 10am worship service, this special blessing time attracts folks with pets of all sizes from Dennis and the surrounding communities.

Children's Sunday -- This student-led service celebrates our children and their growing faith lives, nurtured by our Christian Education program.

Rally Day -- After the varied pace of summer, Rally Day welcomes everyone back to the fall routine and kicks of a new programming year.
