Ardmore United Methodist Church
 
A vital and diverse congregation, we are conveniently located one block from Lancaster Avenue (Route 30) in Ardmore. Members and visitors come from Bala Cynwyd, Narberth, Wynnewood, Ardmore, Haverford, Gladwyne, Havertown, Upper Darby, Newtown Square, Manyunk and all over the Philadelphia suburbs. We are committed to being a place of worship for all, and we gladly welcome anyone who chooses to join us. Our openness to all people of varied backgrounds and perspectives are qualities that built the congregation and continue to attract new members.        

We have a worship service every Sunday from 11am to Noon (in the Summer from 10am to 11am, and refreshments on the patio immediately following worship service). Nursery care is available for infants (up to 3 years old) while their older siblings (ages 4-9) attend Children's Church.

From 2000 to the present, Rev. Tim has been an adjunct professor at Drexel University (www.drexel.edu) where he co-teaches a course at Drexel called "Issues in Science & Religion" with a Physics professor. Prior to his assuming the pastorate at Ardmore, he was the pastor of The Garden Church, a United Methodst Community in Lansdowne, Pa from 2004-2011.  From 1995-2004, was the Executive Director of the Wesley Foundation of Philadelphia and Asbury Protestant Minister at Drexel University. In his pastoral role at Drexel University, Rev. Thomson-Hohl was called upon to teach, conduct counseling, provide worship, lead small groups and create special programming. In the Fall Term of 1998-99 academic years, Rev. Thomson-Hohl taught a three credit elective course at Drexel University called “Women in the History of Religion”.

Over the years, Rev. Thomson-Hohl has been asked to make many presentations. Topics include: religious diversity, the power of destructive cults, science and religion, social change and action, spiritual autobiography, Wicca and earth-centered spirituality. In 1996, Channel 6 ABC in Philadelphia interviewed him for a two-part segment on Wicca for their 11:00 Action News broadcast. For him, the study and practice of alternative spiritual paths is both a personal and professional interest. He is also interested in the study of Christian origins, gender issues, myth and archetypes and the relationship between science and religion.
