On Your First Visit

Getting to church
Hazel Green United Methodist Church is at 14131 Highway 231-431 located in 'downtown' Hazel Green across from the cotton gin.  It is located on the west side of the highway, about 1/4 mile south of the West Limestone / Joe Quick intersection.  The traditional services are located in the Sanctuary on the south side of the building.  The contemporary service is located in the Christian Life Center on the north, rear side of the property.   

Where do I park?
Parking lots surround the building and there are doors all around the facility.   Parking in the south lot is easiest access to our traditional services at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM , and 6:30 PM.  Parking in the back lot is easiest access to our 9:45 AM contemporary service.  In all cases we have visitor 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 and 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 on the outside - it's the inside God looks upon.

Do I need to bring anything?
If you have a Bible, bring it with you to church.  Then you'll be able to follow along with the reading.  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 worship. 

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 youth ministries.  Greeters in the parking lot will help you in getting your children to their class.  Our nursery cares for babies from birth to 36 months.  We have children's activity packs for children 3 years and up as they transition into worship with us, and children of all ages are invited (not required) to go to the front for a special children's minute each morning in our traditional service.  All children and youth are welcome in every service, whether nursery age or not.  We welcome your child even with all his or her squirming and noises as Christ Himself did, so 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.
