Free Summer Concert Series!

Thursday, August 7, 7 p.m. – An Evening of Jazz Standards with the Cameron Kayne Quartet. Our own Cam Kayne, together with his dad, Dave Kayne, are putting together an evening of jazz standards. A reception will follow. Help us spread the word and don't miss it!!! PLEASE NOTE: This concert will be held across the street at the Meeting House.



This concert series is made possible by the generosity of many who have made contributions to the Two Sisters Foundation at Williamsville United Methodist Church. This foundation was established in 2012 for the purpose of providing members and friends opportunities to make charitable gifts in honor and recognition of Judy Stafford and Wendy Amuso, long time music ministers at WUMC. The foundation was established to help carry out the mission of the church by providing for new and enhanced musical ministry for the congregation as well as the community at large.

How Firm a Foundation

 

At Williamsville United Methodist Church, we welcome all people to encounter Jesus Christ. We provide a spiritual community that nurtures active fellowship and participation through a variety of ministries. We encourage people of all ages to join us on a spiritual journey with Christ.

The Williamsville United Methodist Church has been a part of the Village of Williamsville since 1821.While we are proud of our historic presence in the Village of Williamsville, we know what keeps us relevant is far more than our building and history. It is the joy, love, and respect accorded everyone who enters our church, the quality of our staff, the strength of our programs, and our varied ministries.

We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about us. We hope you will return often to read announcements and articles that provide information about upcoming services, ministries, and events. You might also enjoy reading some "Ruminations of a Pastor" from Pastor Neal on his "Sauntering Pilgrim: Notes, Ruminations, and Seeds of Contemplation" blog.

 

We invite you to join us for Sunday worship, Christian education, and fellowship. Our doors are always open and we look forward to getting to know you.

Vision and Mission Statements


VISION STATEMENT 

As a village church, Williamsville United Methodist faithfully continues the vision and tradition of our founders by welcoming all people to encounter Jesus Christ. We will nurture active fellowship and participation through a variety of ministries that encourage people of all ages to grow in a spiritual journey with Christ.

MISSION STATEMENT 

The Williamsville United Methodist Church is a community of people striving to be contemporary disciples of Jesus Christ. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we affirm that God has a purpose for our congregation and that our church can have a telling impact. To that end, our mission is to be and make disciples for Christ! We accomplish this by worshiping God and nurturing each other through our common faith in a loving environment, and by proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ by our daily actions, and by our service in this community and in the world.

 

Our Foundational Beliefs

We as United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share many basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities.  For more information on our beliefs, visit Our Christian Roots on the UMC.org website.

As United Methodists, we have an obligation to bear a faithful Christian witness to Jesus Christ, the living reality at the center of the Church’s life and witness. To fulfill this obligation, we reflect critically on our biblical and theological inheritance, striving to express faithfully the witness we make in our own time.

You can also visit the "Our World" page to discover how ministries of the United Methodist Church are making a difference in lives around the world.
