I’m New

First off, thank you for taking time to check us out. We know you have lots of options about how to spend your time and where to find a church. We invite you to look around our website and check us out Sunday mornings for worship at 8:15, 9:30 or 11 a.m. We understand that visiting a new church for the first time can be a scary thing, but we’ll do everything we can to help you feel comfortable.

Have questions? Let us help.

Where are we located?

Alpharetta Methodist Church is located at 69 North Main Street (Georgia Highway 9), about a block from City Hall in the historical Alpharetta downtown district. We’re at the corner of Main and Cumming Streets, with our front door facing our Cumming Street parking lot. See our location on Google Maps.

From Atlanta
Take Georgia 400 north to exit 9 (Haynes Bridge Road). Turn left onto Haynes Bridge Road and continue until the road dead ends at Cumming Street. Turn left on Cumming Street, and you’ll see our campus on the left.

From Cumming and towns north of Alpharetta
Take Georgia 400 south to exit 11 (Windward Parkway). Turn right onto Windward Parkway, turn left onto Westside Parkway and then right at the first stoplight onto Cumming Street. Our campus will be on your right just before Cumming Street dead ends at Main Street (Highway 9).

Where do I park?

Our main parking lot, including visitor parking, is located on Cumming Street. Additional parking is available at the Student Center, located at 59 North Main Street, one block south of the church.

Parking for those with special needs is available in our Cumming Street parking lot.

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably when you come to worship with us. Some of our attendees wear their “Sunday best,” but most come in more comfortable clothes. Don’t worry about what you wear – you’ll be welcome no matter how fancy or casual you are. Just come to worship God!

What should I bring?

Each of our worship services is Bible-based. While Bibles are provided for your convenience, you may wish to bring your own Bible or Bible app.

When should I arrive?

  • Sunday morning worship services begin at 8:15, 9:30 and 11 a.m.
  • Sunday School is offered at 8:15 and 9:30 a.m.

You should plan to arrive at the church about 15 minutes ahead of the worship service or class you wish to attend, to allow ample time for parking and walking to the sanctuary or classroom.

How do I find my way around?

Greeters are stationed outside our main entrance on Sunday mornings. When you enter the building, look for one of our Guest Services:

  • In the 1st floor lobby
  • On the 2nd floor outside the Sanctuary

At each Guest Services location, you’ll find maps and friendly volunteers, ready to help you and your family find your way around the church.

What's available for my children?

Our Children’s Ministries staff genuinely cares about kids and is committed to help them learn about God and what the Bible has to say about life. Kids’ activities are fun and exciting, and they take place in our secure, dedicated Children’s Ministry area.

Since the safety of children is important to us, everyone working with children is required to go through our Child/Youth Protection Training, which includes training sessions and a background check by a professional agency.

Sign in your children at the Children’s Check-In desk on the first floor, just inside our main entry.

Learn about our Sunday morning children’s programs.

What about my teenager?

Alpharetta Methodist Students (AMS) is all about introducing students to life-changing relationships with Jesus and others. Students meet in their own building (the Student Center, adjacent to the church on Main Street).

Learn about activities for students on Sundays.

How do I get involved?

Are you ready for your next step? Consider attending the 3-week DISCOVER class where you can learn more about United Methodist Church, Alpharetta Methodist, worship and Sunday morning small groups, as well as ministries and membership. The class will give you an opportunity to meet ministry leaders, who stop in to introduce themselves and their ministries.

DISCOVER classes meet on Sunday mornings. See the DISCOVER class schedule.

When you visit on Sunday morning, please stop by Guest Services and let us know you’re here! We’d love to personally welcome you. Our Guest Services stations are located in the 1st floor lobby and outside the main sanctuary.
