Welcome to Brainerd Church
I’m so glad you are visiting our website. As you can see, Brainerd church is a very diverse community. We offer multiple worship services on Sunday, a strong commitment to Sunday school, active youth and children’s programs, plus an outreach in missions both in our neighborhood and around the world. Please explore our church on this website. My prayer is that God will lead you to just the right church home and maybe it is Brainerd Church. Come visit us this Sunday. I look forward to meeting you.
Rev. Dr. Dennis W. Flaugher
If you are planning to visit Brainerd Church for the first time, here is some information you might find helpful:
Where is the Church? Brainerd United Methodist Church is located on Brained Road in Chattanooga. From I-24, take Moore Road, turn left onto Brainerd Road. The church is approximately 1 mile on the right.
What do I wear? Dress comfortably. People do dress up for traditional services and more casually for The Oasis. Don’t worry about how you dress … just come and worship!
When do I need to arrive? Due to parking and finding your way to the sanctuary or the fellowship hall, plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your worship service.
What about my children? Brainerd Church is a safe sanctuary for children and we have a Child Protection Policy in place, which includes a national criminal background check for all adults working with our children. Our nursery is staffed by nurturing and caring adults from 8:30-11:45 for babies and children two and under. Our Sunday school hour is from 9:45-10:40 a.m. for children three years old through the fifth grade. From 10:45-11:45 our children, four and older, attend worship with their families while those under four are supervised by childcare staff in the children’s wing.
