An Open & Affirming/Reconciling Congregation for 30 Years!
There is a place for everyone at WUMC! Join us for worship Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 11:00 A.M.
As a people of God engaged in a spiritual journey and bound by a common hope, we at Wallingford United Methodist Church stand in the stream of the Christian Faith, witnessing to our experience of God’s grace, which we have seen in Jesus Christ.
* We believe in a creating God, in the goodness of all God’s creation, and in the sacred worth of every person.
* We follow a living Christ, who reveals the love of God to us and shows us what it means to be fully human.
* We trust the Holy Spirit, who courts us to stand in right relationship with God, assures us of God’s presence with us, and works in us to bring God’s purposes to birth.
We - women, men, children, LGBTQIAX, black, brown, white, able, differently-abled, immigrant, refugee, educated, uneducated, speakers of all languages, Christians, Muslims, people of all faiths, people with no faith affiliations, every person with every body - we, too, are America.

Next Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Join with WUMC to do a service project, participate in the Stop the Hate: Come Together Rally, or whatever else we decide!

Dear friends of WUMC,
I am sad to share the news of the death of John Boling, who passed away at home on January 4th, 2017. His caregiver and friend, Ron, was with him at the house.
What a fine man, great teacher, and friend of God.
More information on a memorial service is forthcoming.
In Christ’s eternal grace,
Pastor Ann Berney
