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.

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.
