Welcome to Walnut Grove  United Methodist Church. It has pretty much what you would expect to find on a website – maybe more than we need, but we just want folks to understand who we are and get a sense of us. The best way to find out about us is to visit. I hope you will. I think you will find us inviting and welcoming – but then again, as the  Pastor, I’m probably biased! 

If you come, we promise not to single you out, and we promise you a comfortable place alongside folk just like you as we seek to follow God and where God leads in our personal lives and in our life together as a church.

We believe that every congregation that lifts up Jesus as Lord and Savior needs to help people CONNECT with God, each other and the community; open opportunities for folks to SERVE Jesus as we share his love with our community; create opportunities to learn and GROW in our faith; but the most important is to provide a place for us to WORSHIP in a way that effectively reaches our hearts and our minds.  This isn’t rocket science. It’s just the basic stuff we all need as we seek to follow where God leads.

Check us and this website out, and then come visit us for worship. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to call or email me.

Doug Flinn, Pastor


  • Change in Worship Times

    Beginning September 20, 2020, the Walnut Grove Church will change worship times to our "normal" times.  Our Traditional service will begin at 9:00am and our Contemporary service will begin at 11:15am.  We will continue to ask everyone to properly distance while seated in the sanctuary.  Extra seating will be made available in the overflow room next to the sanctuary.  We are also asking that everyone wear masks as you enter and exit the building and while singing.  If you are seated and properly distanced, you may remove you mask.  Be assured that after each service the worship spaces will be properly sanitized for your health and protection.  We also encourage those who are at high risk to stay home and watch out service online -- either on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel.


  • Standing your Ground -- Sermon Series

    The life of Daniel teaches us that living in a culture that is sometimes antithetical to our faith, we must stand firm in our commitments to God and to the church.  In a time when our lives are influenced by so many cultural ideologies , Daniel's faith has something to teach us.  Join us starting January 20 for our study in Daniel.

         September 20 -- The Undefiled (Daniel 1)

         September 27 -- When the Bottom Falls Out (Daniel 2)

         October 4 -- Faith in the Furnace (Daniel 3)

         October 11 -- Looking Up to Heaven (Daniel 4)

    *Pastor Doug will be on vacation October 18 & 25.  Guest preacher will be announced

         November 1 -- The Judgment of Grace (Daniel 5)

         November 8 -- The Song of a Broom (Daniel 6)
