What to Expect

When you join us on Sunday morning, you’ll find friendly faces. Grab a coffee before service, visit our Welcome Center, and meet some of our staff and volunteers before finding a seat. Our goal is to help you find your way at Willowwood Church so you can experience God and His message for you. If you’re looking for a smaller group connection, check out a Sunday School class or join a small group. Visit our Welcome Center by the main entrance to get help finding a class that fits you. Willowwood Church offers classes for children, teens, collegians, and adults of all ages.

Our History

Taylor Park Church of the Nazarene had a humble beginning.  A small group of believers began worshipping together in a small, abandoned grocery store on South Elm Street in 1959.

Within a few months, the church purchased two lots at the corner of McCormick and Willowwood --- an area on the underdeveloped, southern edge of the city.  In 1967, Reverend Bruce Chamberlain began a term of pastoral service that would span thirty-four years and see the church grow and become firmly established.  

In 1967, the church purchased two adjoining lots and erected a two-story education building with paved parking.

In 1980, the church enlarged and remodeled the sanctuary to accommodate the growing congregation.

We now sit under the leadership of Pastor Mark Ramsey.  We believe God is making Willowwwood Church into a lighthouse that shows God's love to our community and our world.  We are excited about the future God is creating as we continue to grow together.

Our Mission

Knowing Christ...  Growing in Christ...  Serving Christ...  Sharing Christ... 

Our services are designed to help people make authentic connections with God.  Our desire is for every person who attends our church to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
