GET TO KNOW US
We know that looking for a church can be intimidating, so whether you’ve grown up in church, have never been to church, or are coming back to church, we want you to know that we welcome you in Christian love!
How about we go first with introductions? You can check out our pastors and staff, flip through our newsletter, read about what we believe, how we got started (it’s a good story!), and how we reach out to the community.
Or if you just want to get a feel for what a Sunday morning worship service feels like, you can listen to the latest sermon:
COME & SEE
Worship provides an opportunity for us to open our lives to the God who loves us at the very core of our being.
- Through a community that extends its arms in welcome to everyone,
- through beautiful music and rituals that open our lives to the holy,
- through messages which aim to connect the Christian faith with our lives today,
we pray that worshiping together with us will lead you to love God, others, and yourself more deeply and more fully.
KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT
Visiting a church for the first time can be quite nerve-racking, which is why we have compiled some information on what you can expect when attending Oak Hill UMC.
Our Sunday services last about an hour each and we celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. We practice “open communion,” which means that you don’t need to be a member of the church or a Methodist in order to participate. If you love Christ, earnestly repent of your sin, and seek to live in peace with one another, you are welcome at the table!

BRING YOUR KIDS
Children are an integral part of the worshiping congregation at Oak Hill UMC. Children are encouraged to worship with their families. Each worship service includes a special “Children’s Time,” and children are always welcome at the Lord’s Table to receive Holy Communion. Nursery care is offered every Sunday morning starting with the 8:45 a.m. service, and for all worship events, church meetings, and gatherings. At 10 a.m. we offer classes for age 3-5th grade. At 11:15 a.m. we offer a combined class for all elementary school-age children.
Our nursery and all of our classes for children are located in the Children’s Education Building.
For detailed information on nursery care and children’s Sunday school classes, check this page.
We are located on Hwy. 290, just west of the Hwy. 290/71 split (“the Y”) in Oak Hill, directly across from the ACC Pinnacle Building.
There is ample parking on campus, and we have reserved some visitor parking spots close to the sanctuary. The visitor parking and the sanctuary are marked in red on this OHUMC campus map.
