New here? Welcome! We're so glad you're here.
Visiting a new church can sometimes be intimidating and uncomfortable. You may have questions as you search for a church home. We hope knowing these answers will help make you feel comfortable as you visit Walnut Hill UMC!
What IS worship service like?
We have Sunday school classes at 9:15 am.
Our worship service starts at 10:30 am. Worship is a combination of liturgy (call and response), prayers, music, and sermon! Some Sundays, we will have a violinist, other Sundays, there might be a folk band. We offer a variety of music as well as preaching based on the Old and New Testament of the Bible.
Is childcare Provided?
Yes! We offer childcare for infants through kindergarten.
Our Ministry Safe-trained childcare workers bring children to Worship for "Children's Time," and then they return to the nursery for the duration of the service.
We encourage children in kindergarten and above to worship with their families.
Not only do we welcome children into the worship service, but we enjoy including them as leaders in the service.
Where Is the nursery Located?
Our nursery is located on the southernmost portion of the building.
We have a check-in/check-out system to ensure the safety of our smallest children.
If your child has special needs, we welcome the opportunity to visit with you to ensure we follow any particular instructions to meet your child's needs while he/she is in the nursery.
Where Do I park?
We have parking at the northern and eastern portions of the building, and entrances are accessible from both of those areas on Sunday mornings.
We also have handicap parking for those who have mobility challenges, and handicap accessibility from all of those entrances.
What is the Dress?
You'll find people dressed in anything from jeans to a sports jacket and slacks! Some women wear jeans while others wear their "Sunday best." You can be certain that you are welcome in whatever clothes you feel most comfortable in.
How Will I know Where to Go?
On Sunday mornings, greeters are located at building entrances. Signage also directs you to our Welcome Center and other room locations.
During the week, a volunteer is located at the information desk in the Welcome Center.
If you are looking for the location of a specific class or activity, please simply ask, and someone will be happy to escort you to your destination.
