This year’s Rally Day is Sunday, September 13, and will feature the usual introduction to Sunday School classes as well as an outdoor ice cream social and ministry fair.

Flu Season is Coming

It won't be long before the Flu season is in full swing and once again WUMC will be having their Flu Clinic. This year we have once again partnered up with Rite Aid and we will be offering: Flu, Pneumonia and Shingles vaccinations. This event will take place on September 20 at 12:00 p.m. 

Flowers Needed for the Alter

Do you have a garden? If you do we want you! Our altar seems so bare when we don’t have flowers and summer blooms are so lovely.

We have all kinds of vases sitting empty and they would look lovely with flowers in them. If you would like to bring flowers from your garden to grace the altar talk to Nancy Cimbal or Barbara Saltarella or call the office at 634-4800.

Considering Membership?
Are you considering a deeper relationship with the congregation and our ministries? In September, Pastor Rich Neal will meet with those who are interested in exploring the meaning, opportunities, and expectations of membership in the congregation and in The United Methodist Church. Watch for details to come.

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.

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.
