Safe Sanctuaries

Our church is a Safe Sanctuaries congregation. That means we walk the talk of keeping kids safe, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

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 Wednesday Night Live are the main times and places those tools are practiced.

What's Wednesday Night Live? WNL is our weekly gathering for youth

WNL happens most Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Woodridge UMC. All students in 7th to 12th grades are welcome. WNL strives to be a grace-filled, inclusive, and safe time for all. WNL begins with all ages together for games and dinner. Then, high schoolers and middle schoolers separate for conversation and a variety of learning experiences.  Finally, all ages gather together for closing worship.

For School Year 2018-19, Confirmation is offered for 7th & 8th grade students (or older students who have not previously completed the program).

All students and parents need to fill out this Youth Ministry Registration Form and return it to Pastor Dave

Wednesday Night Live 2018 Schedule

WNL will return September 5th, 2018.

 

WNL Meals

Sharing a meal together is a holy moment. Building community feeds our souls just as food feeds our bodies. Having dinner together is one of our weekly practices. Wednesday meal times, like most times at WUMC, are intergenerational -- sometimes literally. Our Meal Train site for meal planning will be updated in August with the 2018-19 school year schedule.
