How do I find Perry Hill UMC?

We are conveniently located at the corner of Perry Hill and Harrison roads, 1/2 mile north of the Perry Hill Rd exit from I-85.  After exiting I-85 heading north on Perry Hill Rd, turn left at the fourth traffic at Harrison Rd (just past Hardee's restaurant).  We are located immediately on the right.

Where do I park?

Our main parking lot is located directly behind the church with entrances from both Harrison and Bienville roads.  There is also overflow parking available across Harrison Rd in the Dollar General/Capital Music parking lot.

What should I wear?

Our Sunday morning service dress is Business Casual (Dresses to pantsuits for ladies, suits/ties to khakis and sport shirts for men).  Sunday evening service dress is casual (slacks/jeans and sport shirts).

Where do I go?

For worship services in our sanctuary, our two main entrances are accessible from the rear parking lot of the church.  Our main front entrance is located at the front of the church facing Perry Hill Rd.  Follow the side walk located on the Bienville Rd sided of the church where you will see a sign posted at the rear corner of the building that will point the way to the sanctuary.  There is also a rear entrance door located at about the middle of the building from the rear parking lot (look for the small stairway).  This entrance can be used to access the church office, nursery, Sunday School rooms, fellowship hall and kitchen as well as the sanctuary.  There is a sign posted outside this door as well as one on the wall once you enter the building that will guide you to any of these various locations.  Ushers are also available in the rear parking lot near the covered portico to assist with directions.

For your convenience, we offer a covered portico located in the rear parking lot of the church to drop off worshipers when it is raining.

We also offer an elevator located just under the covered portico for our handicapped worshipers.  Ushers are available to assist with loading and unloading.

What should I expect on my first visit?

It is our tradition at Perry Hill to greet all of our visitors warmly and to make them feel as comfortable as possible.  You will be greeted at one of our entry doors by a friendly usher or greeter who will welcome you and provide you with information and directions for the service you are attending.  We also respect the fact that visitors are often uncomfortable being singled out during worship services, so all you are asked to do is to simply fill out our guestbook when it is passed during the worship service so we can follow up with you at a later time.  You will not be asked to stand and introduce yourself during the worship service.  Perry Hill is often referred to as "a church with a warm heart", so don't be surprised if you are welcomed by several of our caring members before and after the service.  You will be contacted by phone by someone from our church a few days after your initial visit with us to see how you are doing and to see if you have any questions regarding your worship experience with us.  You can always request a personal visit, but that is strictly up to you (we will not force ourselves on you at any time). 

Please know that we are always excited to meet our visitors and we'd love the opportunity to get a chance to know you better and to invite you back to worship with us again.

As a visitor, can I participate in Holy Communion?

As part of the United Methodist Church, we do not prevent anyone from participating in our Holy Communion services.  We believe that Christ's Table is offered to all believers, regardless of denomination or church membership. 

How do I become a Christian?

You need to pray the sinners prayer, where you open your heart to God and acknowledge to Him that...

  • You are a sinner and have fallen short of His glory.
  • Confess your sins to God and ask Him for forgiveness.
  • Repent of your sins.
  • Invite Christ into your heart and make him the Lord and Savior of your life. 

How do I become a member at Perry Hill UMC?

Simply contact our pastor and make your wishes made known.  He will work with you to make all of the proper arrangements and confirm a date with you where during one of our worship services, you will take your vows and be officially welcomed into the fellowship at Perry Hill.
