Messy church

Are you looking for a way to connect to God, but you aren’t sure regular church will fit?  

Do you want to find a safe place where your family can enjoy positive activities and eat dinner together?


Try Messy Church!

Messy Church is an activity and celebration experience for the entire family that meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. here at WUMC.

We have games, crafts and activities for all ages focused around a different theme each month.  The celebration time includes music, prayer, retelling of a Bible story, followed by a family style dinner.  You’ll go home with new ideas to connect with your family and with God.  There is no cost, no dress code and no age limit.

Next Messy Church date:  Tuesday, March 13

Theme: "Second Chances" 

Have you been “too late” for something and wished you had a chance for a do-over? Remember when you missed the morning school bus or forgot a family member’s birthday? Too late. . . But, can it ever be too late to invite Jesus into our lives? Find this answer at Messy Church as we hear the story about Jesus and the criminal who hung beside him on the cross. 

We’ll make Hot-cross Cookies to share with others and learn the story of Holy Week by making Rocky Road Brownies. We will also experiment with some Fizzing Heart Prayers, and then later participate in Celebration Time and enjoy dinner together. 

We are a Safe Sanctuaries church. To view our policy, click here.
