Welcome to DeWitt Community Church

 

DeWitt Community Church is a self-governing congregation of Christians who have come together from many different religious backgrounds and walks of life. Our desire is to be a community of faith that is as comprehensive as the spirit and teachings of Christ and as inclusive as the love of God.

Hearing assistance devices are available from our Ushers They are wireless and permit users to sit anywhere in the Sanctuary. Hymn sheets in Braille are also available from an usher.

Holy Week
Along with Christians around the World, we will be observing what is known as Holy Week. Holy Week starts on Palm Sunday and concludes with Easter Sunday. Holy Week is about remembering the last week of Christ’s earthly life. During Holy Week, we will offer a number of special services:

Palm Sunday
Saturday, April 12, 5:30 PM, Miller Commons
Sunday, April 13, 8:45 AM, Miller Commons & 10:00 AM, Sanctuary
At all three services, we will be remembering Christ’s “triumphant” entry into Jerusalem as people waved palm branches and hailed him as King.

Maundy Thursday
Thursday, April 17, 7:30 PM, Miller Commons
Communion Offered
At this brief but very meaningful service, we will remember the time when Christ met with His disciples for the Last Supper. At this service, we will share together in communion.

Good Friday
Friday, April 18, 12:00 PM & 7:30 PM, Sanctuary
At the 12:00 PM service in the Sanctuary, Dr. Sommers will be sharing on the theme: “Is It Finished?” At 7:30 PM in the Sanctuary, there will be a service of Scripture and Song as we remember Christ’s death on the Cross. The Sanctuary will be open following the 12:00 PM service for meditation until 3:00 PM.

Easter Weekend
Saturday, April 19, 5:30 PM, Miller Commons
Sunday, April 20, 8:45 AM & 10:00 AM, Sanctuary
This year, the Saturday Night Service will be held in Miller Commons.  On Sunday, both services will be held in the Sanctuary and there will be a brass ensemble at both Sunday Services. Dr. Sommers will be speaking on the topic of: “Cross Roads: Graveyard Surprise.”
