At Willow Glen UMC we think that church is a place you should be able to come as you are. We're open and inviting because that's what Jesus taught us. We follow the United Methodist motto, "Open Minds, Open Hearts, Open Doors." We hope you'll come and allow WGUMC to be a part of your spiritual journey.
What time does Regular Sunday service start?
The Sunday service is from 10:00-11:00am each Sunday morning, and combines traditional and contemporary music with organ and praise band.
Where do I go?
The entrance to the main sanctuary is on Newport Avenue on the corner of Minnesota Avenue. There are two sets of big brown double doors that are open before service starts with a sign over them reading, “Willow Glen United Methodist Church.” Please enter here.

What should I wear?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. Everything from dresses and suits to jeans and sneakers is fine, you’ll see the full spectrum here – from babies to seniors wearing whatever suits them. We're more interested in having you come worship God with us than what you're wearing.
What’s the music like?
There’s a choir and pipe organ, with guest instruments always possible—like our amazing bell choir. The music mixes traditional — drawing on both Methodist and modern tradition—as well as some more contemporary versions, played by our Praise Band. All have beautiful inspiring words with soaring music and experienced vocals.
What about kids?
We love kids – families and children are a big focus here at Willow Glen UMC. Kids of all ages attend our service and we’re especially proud that kids stay to worship with their families for the duration of the service. (Sunday School for children will again be available at some point in the future.)
What if I've done bad things or I'm not perfect?
You'll fit right in with the rest of us then. The most important thing we want you to know about Willow Glen United Methodist is that we're a group of imperfect and broken people trying to find Christ together. We aren't worried about what you've done—we’re about where you're going on your faith journey.
What If I'm not a Christian or come from another faith?
We hope that if you're not committed to Christ that you'd allow us the privilege of showing you how we worship the Lord. All of us started where you are right now, and some of us are still there. The point isn't about where you are in your faith journey, but that you're on a journey, and we'd like to be a part of that journey.
