    CHURCH TEAMS & COMMITTEES

    A lot of our church's work is done through our teams and committees. Not all of the people who attend WUMC belong to a church team or committee, but many people do. Of those who don't serve on a team, many offer their time and talents for certain events or short-term projects.

    PRAYER CHAIN

    If you would like to request prayers for yourself or loved ones, please contact Christina Kennedy via email. If you have a spiritual matter you would like to discuss with the pastor, please contact Pastor Ned Crockett via email or the church office, at 377-8620.

    Christina is also the person to contact if you would like to be a prayer warrior!
