On Your First Visit
Where do I park?
Parking in the south lot is easiest access to our traditional services at 8:30 and 11:00 am, and 6:30 pm. Parking in the north lot is easiest access to our 9:45 am contemporary service. In all cases we have visitor and family-friendly parking reserved for you, and parking lot greeters to help you find your way around.
How should I dress?
While some folks like to wear their "Sunday best," many wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday morning. You will see suits, ties, and dresses, as well as blue jeans and tennis shoes, and everything in between, in both our traditional and contemporary services. Come as you are. Our doors are open to everyone.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you have a Bible, bring it with you to church so you'll be able to follow along with the readings. If you don't have a Bible, don't worry about it. We have some available in the pew racks in our traditional services and we display the Scripture passages on the screens in our contemporary service.
When should I get there?
Sunday morning services begin at 8:30, 9:45 and 11:00. Sunday school and small groups meet at 9:45 on Sunday mornings. It's a good idea to get here a few minutes early until you learn you way around, and especially if you have children who will go to the nursery or to Sunday school.
What about my children?
Hazel Green United Methodist has excellent preschool, children and student ministries. Greeters in the parking lot will help locate worship spaces and our nursery for children from birth to 35 months. We have children's activity packs for children as they transition into worship with us, and children of all ages are invited (not required) to come to the front for a children's minute each morning in our traditional service.
All children and youth are welcome in every service, whether nursery age or not. Our nurseries are simply provided for your comfort and choice. If you join us for Sunday school and small group time, we have classes for children and youth of all ages, and we will help you find the right groups for your whole family.
