Sunday morning worship @ 10:00 am, interpreted for Deaf and hard-of-hearing.
Come as you are - casual or dressy, it doesn't matter to us!
When you visit us on Sunday morning, there will be friendly faces waiting to welcome you! We'll be happy to direct you to the sanctuary and children's classrooms.
If you are Deaf or hard-of-hearing, we are prepared with an interpreter on hand.
Our music is a mix of contemporary worship songs and hymns of the faith. After enjoying worship with the adults, children from nursery through grade six are dismissed to their Sunday School classes for their own lesson.
Adult Sunday School meets before worship at 9:00 am.
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, Rev. Bruce Chamberlain began a term of pastoral service that would span 34 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.
In 2010, Taylor Park traded properties with the City of Denton Fraternity of Police--which were located directly across the street from each other. Under the leadership of the Rev. Mark Ramsey, the current church building was constructed. The church board elected to change the church name to Willowwood Church of the Nazarene. Pastor Ramsey had a 17-year vibrant ministry at Taylor Park/Willowwood Church.
In March,2020, after several months serving Willowwood as Interim Pastor, it became clear to Rev. Ken Tesch as well as the church, that the Teschs were a perfect fit for the church, and Pastor Ken became Lead Pastor. Under his leadership, we are enjoying a season of renewal and regeneration. We believe God is making Willowwood 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.
