Youth Ministries


Our Vision for Youth Ministry

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 morning worship gatherings and Youth Group are the main times and places those tools are practiced. 


Sunday Afternoons

Our weekly Youth Group gatherings are on Sunday afternoons from 12noon-1:30pm. 2019-20 School Year is not a Confirmation year, so all students in 7th-12th grades are invited and welcome. Bring a friend!

After second worship service ends meet in the kitchen for lunch — parents are invited too. After the meal we will play games and learn about and from each other regarding the life of faith and just life in general. No topic is out of bounds. 


Sharing a meal together is a holy moment. And everyone needs to eat. After second worship service ends meet in the kitchen. To volunteer to provide a meal, visit our Meal Train site.

Other Ministries

Children'S Ministries

Opportunities for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary students to learn stories of faith in age-appropriate ways. We want children of all ages to know they are safe, to know they are loved, and to know they are an active part of a larger story.




Opportunities to grow in faith as we get to know others and come to be known by others. We learn with each other and we learn from each other as we explore together how to live the way of Jesus in the world today.
