Groups at Walker Church

NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be shut down for all non-essential operations. If you have questions about this, please contact office@walkerchurch.org. We will assess possibilities for renting on a case-by-case basis, depending on compliance with CDC guidelines and building regulations. We are allowing very small groups (MAX 10 people at a time) to gather for short intervals at a distance with masks, and while the weather permits, we are also allowing groups to use our backyard space. We will not allow for any dance or exercise groups to meet in the building, and we are suspending celebrations of all kinds until further notice. We recommend you contact group leaders for more information on how each group is operating during the pandemic.
