(November 2020) COVID 19 UPDATE:  Due to the current Orange Zone in Erie County, we have moved to online worship

Worship is the most basic and central focus of Williamsville United Methodist Church. Our Worship Team works closely with our pastor and music staff to plan creative ways to enhance the worship experience for the congregation. Our goal is to provide worship services that make every person feel welcome, loved, and spiritually renewed, while reflecting the significance of our traditions and beliefs.

We invite you to join us for Sunday worship.

Each Sunday during the regular program year, which runs from the third Sunday of September through 2nd Sunday of June, we hold two worship services at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The 9:00 a.m. service is 45 minutes in length, while the 11:00 a.m. service generally lasts one hour. Christian Education for adults and children is at 9:45 a.m. During the summer months (June through the second Sunday of September), WUMC has one worship service at 10:00 a.m. 

9:00 a.m. CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP: At the 9:00 a.m. services, our order of worship follows the Contemporary Praise style that includes choruses and contemporary Christian music led by the “CrossWinds” praise band and other musicians.

Each week at the 11:00 a.m. service, we bring praise and worship to God through a variety of prayers, scripture, music, and sacraments in a blended style that uses both The United Methodist Hymnal and The Faith We Sing Hymnal Supplement. Our Chancel Choir, Bell Choirs, and Junior Choir, as well as many talented soloists and instrumentalists, enhance our worship.
Celebrate Communion.  We celebrate communion one Sunday morning each month during both worship services, and also on special Sundays throughout the church calendar. People of all ages including children who have a Christian background are welcome to partake of communion at WUMC.

Crib Room Available.  Loving, consistent care for infants and toddlers is available every Sunday morning in WUMC’s cheerful Crib Room, which is staffed by Ms Amanda and a helper. The Crib Room is available 15 minutes before the first worship service and closes 15 minutes after the last service. A paging system is used to quietly alert parents when they are needed. The Crib Room is located on the lower level of the church, across from the kitchen. Please ask an usher if you need directions.

In addition, quiet activities are provided for children who are worshiping with their families in the sanctuary. Children can pick up these activities at the back of the church. Like the Children’s Message during worship, the activities are chosen to enhance the morning’s message and relate to the liturgical year.

Handicap Accessibility and Other Aid.  There is a small parking lot behind the church on Oakgrove Drive that includes several parking spots reserved for those with handicapped hang-tags. A door from this parking lot leads to an elevator that can be taken to all levels of the church. The elevator can accommodate a person in a wheelchair or motorized chair. Please ring the bell at the elevator entrance for assistance.

Large print bulletins, hymnals, and Bibles are available in the sanctuary.
