The United Methodist Church of Anoka is a diverse and growing community with a warm sense of fellowship, a great spirit, a challenging vision and an exciting enthusiasm. Below are some things you may want to know before you come. Check in Sunday Mornings at our Welcome Center and feel free to contact us at or call 763.421.2378 M-Th 9am-4pm and Fridays from 9am-1pm if your questions aren't answered here.

We love families and also have lots of active seniors. 

For parents with babies and young children ages infant to 3-years old, we offer a nursery at both the 8:30am and 10:00am worship services. Our nursery is on the second floor of the Sunday school wing and is staffed with paid nursery assistants Krista Allen is our Nursery Coordinator. She is CPR/first aid certified. We use cell phone texts to stay in contact with parents. (No nursery is offered on Memorial Weekend, Fourth of July Weekend and Labor Day Weekend.)

Sunday school for all ages meets at 10:00am from September to May. All teachers go through training that includes safe sanctuaries and background checks. Dave Long, our interim Director of Family Ministries , will be happy to help your children get settled in a class. 

For parents of teenagers, 8th & 9th Grade Confirmation meets Wednesday evenings. All other grades 6-12 meet at 10am for Sunday school. (September-May) Youth group meets Wednesday evenings. Times will be posted in the Fall. Our Director of Family Ministries, David Long, can help ease the transition for teens.

Worship experiences at UMCA are at 8:30 & 10:00am and are a blend of traditional and contemporary styles with a variety of music. They last about an hour. Dress is relaxed--some people dress up, some people don't. Everybody's welcome!

Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and at special times throughout the year. All are welcome at the United Methodist Communion Table and it is an important family time for all of us. Children remain with their families on communion Sundays.

There are two parking lots: the south lot behind the church has handicap accessibility and the large north lot across the street from the front entrance is always available for your use.

...okay, come on... we can't wait to meet you!
