Your first visit to any church can feel a bit like a first date: both exciting and awkward at the same time. It's normal to feel that way, so don't worry about it. First visits are first steps, it takes time and more visits to get to know any church, we hope you'll come back again and again to really get to know us.
Here some answers to help you get familiar with WGUMC:

We work hard to make sure every weekend service is creative and relevant to your life. You can park in our campus lot off of Minnesota Avenue or the adjoining lot with the entrance on Newport Avenue. If it is your first time with us, we reserve a few spots in the Newport lot just for you--please take one! Enter through the main doors facing Newport Avenue.
Rev. Jaekuk Jo is our Senior Pastor, and Susan Grace Smith is our Pastor of Children and Family Ministries.

We encourage families to attend worship together so while you're in worship, your children will stay with you for the entire service at this time. (Sunday School for children will resume at some point in the future.) Susan Grace Smith is our Pastor of Children and Family Ministries.

Some people come dressed in jeans and t-shirts while others come dressed business casual. If you prefer to wear a tie or a dress, that's fine too. We want you to feel comfortable while we experience worship together.
