Common Questions

We’re so excited to have you join us!

Attending a new church for the first time can be nerve-wracking. We get it! We’re here to help. We have a hospitality team dedicated to welcoming you into our church and making sure you find what you need. Still have questions? Contact the church office at 660-885-5597 and we are happy to answer any other questions you might have.

Are there any COVID restrictions?

Masks are optional and we no longer require social distancing. Hand sanitizer stations are at the entries.

Where are the entrances?

We have two main entrances to the church. The first entrance can be found by the ark in the church yard. There are double glass doors just down the sidewalk from the ark. The other main entrance can be found in the circle drive. There are two large wooden doors. You won’t miss it! We have a main parking lot by the ask as well as additional parking along 4th street and Wilson street. Visit our directions page for a map!


What should I expect when I come to in-person services?

When you come through our doors, you will be greeted by members of our hospitality team. They will welcome you with open arms and will be happy to direct you to any of the worship spaces, Sunday School classrooms, restrooms, or the nursery.

How do I join a Sunday School group?

You are welcome to join a Sunday School group at any time! You can call or email the church office to get in contact with a teacher.

What should I wear?

We don’t have a specific dress code. Jeans, pants, suits, dresses, we see it all! Some people like to dress up, some don’t! Wear whatever you are comfortable in. You will see “dressier” outfits at the traditional services, and more “casual” outfits at the Back Room service.

What do I do with my small child during church?

We have a staffed nursery for ages 5 and under. It is located across from the main sanctuary, near the top of the slide. Parents are welcome to drop their children off.

Who can take communion?

As Methodists, we believe that anyone who is present during worship can join us in communion! You do not have to be Methodist or a member of the church.

Do I have to be a member?

Nope! Anyone is welcome to join us for a worship service or communion.

How do I become a member?

Call the church office or email office@clintonumc.net and we will get you set up to meet with our pastor! He will walk you through the steps of becoming a member.
