Our Vision for Youth Ministry at WUMC
For WUMC to be a place to belong, a place to know God loves you, and a place to hear God calling you to a life of loving service for the transformation of the world.
Worship, conversation, study, prayer and serving others are our main tools for accomplishing that vision.
Sunday worship gatherings, Confirmation program and Wednesday Night Live are the main times those tools are practiced. We hope you'll join us.
Wednesday Night Live & Confirmation
