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


Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School:  Game On!

VBS is scheduled for July 23rd-July 26th from 6:00-8:00 PM with an optional meal at 5:30 PM! Since VBS is only 4 nights, we will instead have our program on Thursday night so all families can attend starting at 7:45 PM.  VBS is for grades Pre-K to 6th Grade.  

We are so excited to use a sports theme to spread God's word and connect with our kids! "Gear up! Get Ready! Game on!"

*Registration forms can be found by clicking on the links tab.

Chicken-Pork Chop BBQ

Wlanut Grove will sponsor a Chicken-Pork Chop BBQ on Thursday, August 16, 4:00-7:00pm.  The meal will include 1/2 Chicken or 2 pork chops, bacon and chesse scalloped potaoes, apple sauce, and dessert.  The cost for the meal is $10.00/person.  You can see any WGUMC member, or call the church office at 419-675-1368 for tickets.

Current Sermon Series

We love offering little nuggets of advice, support, or sympathy. They come in handy when we want people to feel better. But what if the guidance you’re giving or receiving just isn’t true? What if God Never Said That? 

Join us for our Summer sermon series, "God Never Said that." Each week we will take a look at a common phrase we believe to be biblical...but are they?  Come and explore what God would have to say to us to inform our lives.
