If you are new to Colonial Heights, we want to make you feel at home. Here are answers to some of the questions most commonly asked by our guests:
How do I get there?
We are located at 6321 Chapman Highway (Hwy 441) in the Colonial Village community of South Knoxville, just 4 miles from downtown Knoxville and the Henley Street Bridge.
Where do I park?
Parking is available to the front, sides and rear of the church. Several visitor and/or handicap parking spaces are available to the north side of the church, immediately in front of the church, and in the rear (upper-level) parking lot.
Where do I go?
Our worship services are held in the main sanctuary.
Adult Sunday School classes meet on the ground floor of the Benson Building (the north wing); children and youth classes meet in the Humble Building (the south wing).
Wonderful Wednesday meals and programs are held in the Fellowship Hall, on the second floor of the Benson Building (north wing), which is most easily accessed from the rear parking lot.
If you are looking for the church office, you’ll find it on the ground floor of the Benson Building (north wing).
What about my infant or toddler?
Infant and toddler nurseries are provided during Sunday School and Morning Worship on Sunday mornings.
Is your building accessible?
Yes, our main level is accessible via ramps in front of the Humble Building (south wing) and at the northern end of the Benson Building (north wing). Unfortunately, we do not have an elevator; however, the fellowship hall is accessible via ramp from the rear (upper level) parking lot. Our restrooms are handicap-equipped, and our sanctuary has ample wheel-chair-accessible pews.
Can I meet the pastor?
Our pastor would be happy to talk with you. You can reach him by e-mail. You may set up an appointment to meet him at the church, or he would be happy to come to your home.
How do I join the church?
If you are interested in finding out about church membership, the pastor would be happy to talk with you. Members make a commitment to support the church through their prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.
What about Holy Communion?
In 2004 the United Methodist Church encouraged local congregations to deepen their sacramental life through a more regular practice of the Lord’s Supper. Colonial Heights UMC studied the resource This Holy Mystery: A United Methodist Understanding of Holy Communion and decided to make communion available on a regular basis. We focus on Jesus’ words, “Do this in remembrance of me” (Luke 22:19). The communion table is God’s table, not a United Methodist table; everyone and all ages are welcome to come and receive.
