Adventurers' Group Outings

The Adventurers Group is a group of "mature" adults from WUMC who have been socializing and forming close friendships since our very first Progressive Dinner in January, 1986.  

We meet the third Saturday of each month during the year, summers off. Our group has been socializing and forming close friendships for many years. Each month a person or couple is in charge of planning the event. We go to a restaurant together and usually follow with fellowship at the host's home.  We have attended plays, had pot luck dinners, etc.  We are always welcoming newcomers. Save the 3rd Saturday, and look for information on our church calendar.



Let's do lunch!   

How about First Friday Lunch?  We will have lunch, socialize with friends, and make new friends.  We will gather in Fellowship Hall the First Friday of the month from 12:00 to 1:30ish. Bring a sandwich and beverage for yourself and a salad or dessert to share. All adults are invited, that even means MEN. Hope to see you there!



Emmaus Board

The Emmaus Board of Directors are responsible for conducting “Walk to Emmaus” and “Chrysalis” Christian spiritual growth retreat weekends in the Chicagoland area. These weekends are for adults, young adults and high school students. These retreats are programs by the Upper Room of the Methodist Church. Emmaus Board meet the third Friday of the month at @ 7:30pm.



Emmaus Reunion Group

The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders.  At our Wednesday Emmaus Reunion, members share their daily walk in a non-judgmental yet accountable process with each other. The program's approach seriously considers the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate to being "a servant of all."
