About Us

Location and Hours


Prospect United Methodist Church is located at 300 East Ash Street in Dunlap, Illinois. Situated three blocks east of Highway 91 through Dunlap and just off Cedar Hills Drive (only three miles from Knoxville Avenue in Peoria), we are found under the water tower next to Dunlap Elementary School.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM.

Worship Times

Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM.

We also have special services throughout the year and for Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday Love Feast, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunrise Service.

Children are welcome — age-appropriate worship packets for children ages 3–6 (purple cloth bags) and 7–12 (clear plastic bags) with materials relating to the day's scripture lesson are available. Children in K through 4th Grade may also participate in Kingdom Quest; they are excused after the Children's Message given during service.

Our paid and volunteer nursery staff helps your child discover and learn what God is like. Interactive lessons and music share the many ways that God shows us he loves all children. These early experiences will help prepare your child for further encounters with our loving God such as Sunday School and confirmation.

Ages: Newborn to 5-year-olds.

Hours: 8:45 to 11:00 AM on Sundays and for special events throughout the year.

Paging System:  After you sign your child in, you will receive a pager that allows our nursery staff to contact you if they need you, or to let you know that your child calmed down after you left.

Our nursery is located off the Fellowship Hall.

Sunday School

Every Sunday, we provide opportunities to further grow in your faith and enjoy fellowship, whether you are an adult, teen, or child. Small group studies also are offered throughout the year. (Note: There is no Sunday School during the summer.) Learn more about Sunday School classes.
