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

    During this time of health crisis in our nation, we at Walnut Grove wish to do our part to help stem the spread of the Covid19 virus.  Therefore, at the request of Bishop Gregory Palmer, the Walnut Grove UMC has suspended worship services and all other church activities until at least through Easter Sunday -- April 12, 2020.  Pastor Doug will post updates as needed on the church's Facebook page and here on the website.  We will worship together in a virtual sense through Facebook Live each Sunday at 11:00am.  if your need any help or pastoral care, please contact Pastor Doug or the churh office.  We are praying for all of you daily!

  • Pastor's Bible Study

    Beginning March 17, 2020, Pastor Doug will lead a 12 week study entitled The Epic of Eden.  This study brings a new dimension to the history of the ancient Near Eastern, orienting the group in time, geography, culture and relevance for today -- all without diminishing the readers faith or "dumbing down the scripture.  Each session will last 70-90 minutes.  Please call the church office or Pastor Doug if you would like to be a part of this study

    *Please note:  Pastor's Bible Styudy has been suspended until the current health crisis is over.  Please stay tuned for further announcements concerning the start date of the Pastor's Bible Study
