Overlook United Methodist Church


About Us



First Steps Day Care



Welcome, and thanks for your interest in Overlook United Methodist. We believe that we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community. That belief shapes everything we do, from our worship on Sunday mornings to our Church School programs to our participation in the local soup kitchen serving the needy in Woodstock. We find that when we express God’s love in the community around us, we experience God’s love in a deeper way. That experience binds us together as a body. Our staff and members strive to have open hearts, open minds, and open doors so that we can make a positive impact on our community and the world beyond.

We hope you’ll visit Overlook and experience it for yourself.

Weekly services are held on Sunday mornings at 9:40 am
