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 for a worship service.  If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to call or email me.

Doug Flinn, Pastor

Summer Sermon Series

The importance of the parables can hardly be overestimated. They comprise a substantial part of the recorded preaching of Jesus. The parables are generally regarded by scholars as among the sayings which we can confidently ascribe to the historical Jesus; they are, for the most part, authentic words of Jesus. Moreover, all of the great themes of Jesus' preaching are struck in the parables. Perhaps no part of the Gospels, then, can better put us into touch with the mind of Jesus Christ than the parables. They still today present us with the challenge with which Jesus encountered his hearers in first-century Palestine. These little stories (together with the Lord's Prayer and the Beatitudes) are the best known of all Jesus' words.  Beginning June 23, Pastor Doug will being his summer preaching series: Very Short Stories: The Parables of Jesus
