Welcome! Here’s some behind the scenes information for you about Troy United Methodist Church in Troy, IL!
It’s wonderful to have you consider being a guest at Troy UMC this Sunday. It will be great to meet and get to you know. If you have any questions that the website doesn’t answer, feel free to contact us!
Here’s the Sunday morning schedule: 8:00 am worship is in the Sanctuary, which is on the upper level. 9:00 Worship is on the lower level in the Family Life Center. The 10:15 service is in the sanctuary and the 10:45, happening concurrently, is in the Family Life Center. There are several different parking areas around the church.

When you pull into the church driveway, located at 407 Edwardsville Road, Troy, IL, there are two main parking areas for the Sanctuary. One is immediately to the right and the other small lot is up and on the left. If you continue past the building, you will see a parking sign point you left, which will bring you around to the larger parking lots on the lower level. In the case of overflow, there is a ball field gravel parking lot just behind the church with a small walk way to get back toward the building.
The children’s ministry (3 years to 5th grades) happens from 9:00 – 10:00 and 10:15 – 11:45. Natalie Carlson, Director of Children’s Ministry, and her team lead the sessions with small groups and large groups. Check in takes place in the Fellowship Hall, which is on the lower level. For first time guests, Natalie and team members will get all your family contact information to allow for safe connection and participation as you attend worship.
A nursery is available for children three and under and is located off the Fellowship Hall, near the children’s ministry check in. Kim Barnes, Nursery Director and her team will ask you to fill out all the needed contact information. The nursery is staffed with qualified, paid nursery staff, many of whom have been working there for many years. The nursery is open from 7:45 am – 11:45 am each Sunday morning.
COFFEE AND REFRESHMENTS
Great coffee, doughnuts, juice, milk and granola bars are available all morning. Upstairs, near the sanctuary, there is a water cooler and coffee and doughnut area next to the entrance. In the Family Life Center, lower level, there are larger areas for coffee and refreshments. A large percentage of people gather in the Family Life Center between worship services, from 10:00 – 10:15 am. There is no charge for coffee and refreshments, but a donation basket is available if you wish.
