About Lone Oak UMC
Lone Oak United Methodist Church is a medium-sized congregation within the Tennessee-Western Kentucky Conference of United Methodist Churches, a global network of churches connecting with a common purpose - to make disciples of Jesus.
As United Methodists, we believe that extending the care of Christ to everyone is key to living as Jesus expects. This desire to include should be deeply-rooted in us, emanating from the inclusion we’ve received from God. Lone Oak UMC strives for radical hospitality in the ways we welcome, receive, and nurture guests and members alike. Learn more at the links below.
We believe that many more things unite us than separate us, and therefore, all people, including children, are welcome and accepted during our services. However, if nursery care is needed, we have a fully-functional space with nursery attendants available during our services and for all of our functions. Children ages 3 - 5th grade are welcome to Children's Church. As you enter the sanctuary, kids can pick up an activity bag which contains crayons and books for young children to use during worship.
As you arrive, there will be greeters at the entrance who open the doors to welcome you and provide assistance. From the front entrance, the sanctuary will be directly ahead of you, typically our pews are arranged in two sections with an aisle to the altar in the center. Please have a seat wherever feels comfortable and allow our Hospitality Team to welcome you.
Why Chose Lone Oak UMC?
If you have ever been made to feel alone, insignificant, or unworthy, allow us an opportunity to build a bridge to show you that every child of God is worthy of Christ’s love, and YOU are a child of God.
We value Presence over Appearance and invite everyone to come as you are. We truly believe people should come to God as they are; you don’t need to dress up to get God’s approval. You’ll find that our congregation has all types of people in all kinds of attire. Jeans are as welcome as suits, and you’ll see both.
*Masks: Majority of our congregation is fully vaccinated, for that reason, we no longer require masks to be worn during service. Those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask are encouraged to do so. Those who wish to remain socially distant at this time may collect a red wristband at the entrance table.
We follow an Order of Worship each Sunday. Our services will contain a mixture of singing, recitations, praying, and listening, so be sure to take a bulletin before you sit down and you can follow along with the prompts.
Before You Leave
Our pastor will be outside the doors to greet the congregation as you leave the sanctuary. For our first time guests, we'd would love to share a personal gift with you. We hope to see you again soon!
