Who We Are
We are a community
First and foremost this is a church of the community. Everyone brings their gifts to the table. Members coordinate outreach, provide pastoral care to each other, and facilitate the Sunday Celebration. At the end of the sermon, everyone is invited to participate in an open discussion.
We nurture spirituality
We have small groups that facilitate both rational and spiritual development.
We are inclusive
Our community is honored as it welcomes people of all ethnicities and nationalities. The extended Walker Community includes persons of different faith traditions, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Wiccan, Muslim, and Sufi who wish to walk with us for a while on their spiritual journey.
We are feminist
God is neither male nor female. As such, we at Walker Church do not confine God to the male or female pronoun, but use both interchangeably. Whether our pastor is male or female or neither, we ensure that non-male voices are heard regularly from our pulpit.
We are reconciling
We welcome gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender persons. Walker Community is an active Reconciling Congregation within the United Methodist Church.
We welcome the differently abled
We welcome persons who have physical disabilities and persons with mental illness. You will find a caring community here.
