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

Lenten Sermon Series

Some Lenten observances border on works-righteousness. We recognize our sinfulness and need for redemption, but we have a tendency to emphasize our own efforts at self-improvement and can unwittingly de-emphasize grace. While I’m a good Wesleyan and believe wholeheartedly in working out my salvation with fear and trembling, I also understand all my work and effort as a response to grace, not a way to earn grace. Redemption is God’s doing, so leading up to our remembrance of the cross and the glorious resurrection of Jesus, we want to refocus on the story of redemption found throughout the narrative of Scripture. God’s story is a story of redemption, unfolding in lives, families, and nations through the millennia.
