Wethersfield United Methodist Church

open minds, open hearts, open doors


"Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." -Jesus

At Wethersfield United Methodist Church (WUMC), we value all children as Jesus does; as precious gifts in and to the kingdom of heaven. We believe in creating a loving and safe environment (see Safe Sanctuary policies in 'Resource') that supports parents and families in building the vitally important spiritual growth of a child. We offer various opportunities for children to know and experience God's love for us in Jesus and to be active in worship and service to others. We welcome you and your family to come join us!



At Wethersfield United Methodist Church we are very excited about our Youth Ministry. Our Youth group is active and includes all youth between grades 6 all the way up to seniors in high school.

Youth School

Church School


WUMC offers a caring, fun environment of learning biblical truths each Sunday morning between the two major services (from 9:30-10:20am).

Our dedicated volunteer staff warmly welcomes your child/children between the ages of 3 years old to 5th grade in order to support the nurturing faith building that begins at home.

We have used a variety of popular curriculums including “Bible Buzz” Group Publications) and Cokesbury programs.

WUMC offers a relaxed educational age-appropriate worship time for the young congregants in Second Service.

Children begin service seated with their family members. They are invited to come forward toward the altar to hear the Children's Moment sermon, after which we exit as a group to Fellowship Hall (off the sanctuary). This fun, adult-supervised snack, game, craft and praise song time generally expands on the worship topic.

Children return to sanctuary at the final hymn.

Christmas Pageant

christmas pageant 

Beginning generally in October, we offer a Church-wide opportunity to participate in a Christmas pageant. This is always an exciting and well-looked forward to event.

We meet on Wednesday evenings and some Saturday mornings for rehearsal. The main goal of the pageant is to help the children and participating adults realize and enjoy the true "reason for the season" in the midst of all the busyness of those days and to offer the congregation a gift of song and joy!

All are welcome and everyone has a talent to offer! Come check us out!

Vacation Bible School


At the completion of the Wethersfield Public Schools calendar, we offer our favorite event!!

Our evening Vacation Bible School has transformed our church to a castle, to a weird animal sanctuary, to ice caves and more! We offer this evening all-church opportunity to explore the Great News of God's love in Jesus as stations for cool current songs, science experiments, games, snacks, bible story and comedy skits!

Open to ages 3 years to 5th grade (with older kids and adults as group leaders to move the kids).

Its a vacation Blast!!
