What kind of church are you?

Alpharetta Methodist is a diverse community of believers who are part of the United Methodist Church. We strive to lived out our faith in concrete ways, sharing the love of God by caring for one another and serving in our community and around the world. We value relevant, passionate preaching, inspiring worship, and small groups where people can grow in faith.

Where are you 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. This road turns into Cricket Lane and ends at Cumming Street, where you’ll turn left. On Cumming Street, look for 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 left just before Cumming Street dead ends at Main Street (Highway 9).

What are the service times and what should I expect?

You should expect to be warmly welcomed by our greeters and ushers who are ready to help you find your way. Currently, we have two in-person services. Both services feature biblically-based, relevant messages and inspiring music and last about 50 minutes. Both services are currently being held in our main Sanctuary and livestreamed.

  • Contemporary worship: 9 a.m.
  • Traditional worship: 11 a.m.

Before you visit, we invite you to download our app which includes an order of worship, a place to take notes, and one-click access to the Scripture readings.

Where do I park?

Our main parking lot is located on Cumming Street and includes specially-designated parking spots for visitors and for those with special needs. Please let our parking attendants know that you’re visiting or need handicap parking.

Additional parking is available at the Student Center, located at 59 North Main Street, just south of the main church building.

See a campus map here.

When should I arrive?

Sunday morning worship services begin at 9 and 11 a.m.

You should plan to arrive at the church about 15 minutes ahead of the worship service you wish to attend, to allow ample time for parking, entering the building and finding a seat.

If your family has Children’s Worship reservations, you may wish to arrive a few minutes earlier to check your children in.

Where do I enter the building?

Our main entrance is under the drive-through portico facing Cumming Street. Greeters are stationed near the entrance to welcome you and, once you enter, to help you find your way.

See a campus map here. (Our main front door is #1 on the map.)

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably when you come to worship. 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 welcomed 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. You may also wish to bring your own Bible. Or download our app for one-click access to the day’s Scripture reading, to take notes and to follow along with the order of worship.

What's available for my children?

Children’s Worship is offered at 9 and 11 a.m., so your kids can attend an age-appropriate worship experience while you’re worshiping in the Sanctuary. Reservations are required for Children’s Worship and the nursery. Make Children’s Worship and nursery reservations here.

Sunday School for children resumes on June 6 at 10 a.m.

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

Learn about Children’s Ministry activities.

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.

What about my teenager?

Alpharetta Methodist Students (AMS) is all about introducing students to life-changing relationships with Jesus and others. Your teenager is encouraged to attend worship with you in the Sanctuary.

Sunday morning student programming will resume June 6 at 10 a.m. in the Student Center, located adjacent to the main church building on Main Street. See a map here.
