Welcome to DMAC!

Join us for worship every Sunday at 9:30 am at 234 E Alice Ave or stream online if you can't make it in person.

We joyfully proclaim the Good News about Jesus Christ! He is alive, he is Lord, and he has begun the renewal of all things, starting with his people, the church. Because of him you can receive new life, peace in the present and a sure hope for the future...all as a loving gift from God to you and the whole world.

Our worship and culture is oriented around the person and work of Jesus Christ, as he is revealed in the Scripture, as we are united to him through the Sacraments, and as we are transformed to be more like him in the power of the Holy Spirit.

For now, masks remain optional in our services. Please read the latest communication from our Vestry on COVID-19.

While we don't currently offer nursery care for infants, we welcome children in our worship! A cry room is available in the Narthex.

About our church

We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired, authoritative witness to the amazing love of God in Jesus Christ. You can expect the Holy Scriptures to be treasured, read, taught, wrestled with, and prayed in our community.

We believe Jesus meets us inwardly in a special way as we participate outwardly in particular acts of worship, called Sacraments. Our Sunday gatherings follow an ancient pattern (called a liturgy) that is interactive and culminates in the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion (also called the Eucharist).

We believe God the Holy Spirit changes our hearts to be more like Jesus, calling and equipping us to lay down our lives for the sake of others. We trust the Spirit moves powerfully today as he did in the early Church.

What we believe

The Bible
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God written and to contain all things necessary to salvation.

The Creeds
The core of what we believe the Bible teaches is found in the Nicene Creed, an ancient and universal statement of orthodox Christian faith:

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.


In addition the Nicene Creed, we also affirm the Apostles' and Athanasian Creeds. These three make up the historic creeds of the Catholic (universal) Church.

The Anglican Tradition
The word “Anglican” means that we trace the beginnings of our church to the Church of England, through the Reformation of the 16th Century, all the way back to the earliest English-speaking Christians. The Anglican Way is a way of being a Christian that is based–first and foremost–on the Bible and the patterns of worship recorded there.

We affirm the 39 Articles of Religion (a statement from the English Reformers addressing theological issues that were particularly pressing in their time).
We also affirm the theology expressed in the Ordinal (forms for ordaining Bishops, Priests, and Deacons) and liturgies found in the Book of Common Prayer, 1662.
