Conversation Project

The Conversation Project is a national effort to encourage all of us to make the very important conversation with our loved ones about matters that can be difficult and emotionally trying. The time to talk about these issues: the medical, legal and most important, spiritual side of the end of life is right now.  Niagara Frontier City Ministries and Williamsville UMC invite you to join us on Sunday April 30, following the Williamsville UMC Worship service, for a workshop – free of charge – to help you on this path.  See the yellow insert for more information and reserve your space.

Thanks and hugs to our Youth Group

Thank you so much for all the wonderful food you made for our members who are unable to get to church, who may be hesitant to go to the store because of the weather or who just can’t physically get around like they did a few years ago.

I have brought some of those meals to them and they are so appreciative to know that we still care about them. I have always said we here at WUMC have the best kids. Again, thank you and remember that you are the hands and feet of God.

Blessings,

Barbara Saltarella

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.

 

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.

Welcome Statements

WUMC WELCOME STATEMENT

We welcome you to the Williamsville United Methodist Church in the name and sprit of Jesus Christ, offering openness, acceptance and support that enables all persons to participate in the life of the church. All are welcome.

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.



Visit the "Our Faith" page of the UMC.org website to learn more about what United Methodists believe and how these beliefs are reflected in our ministries. 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.
