Welcome to Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church!
We invite you to take a look at us—check out our website for the details, and better yet, check us out in person some Sunday morning. If you are looking for a mid-sized, downtown, mainline Protestant Church in Wauwatosa, maybe we are the one for you.
Get Social with WAUMC
Do you know that the church has a Facebook page and a Twitter? You can “like” us on Facebook by adding Wauwatosa Avenue UMC as a friend or you may “like” our page, Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church.

They will take you directly to our pages, then sign in to your account and “like” or “follow” us.
Halloween Family Movie Night
Bring your sleeping bag, pillow, and favorite stuffed animal and camp out in Fellowship Hall for a spooktacular movie! We will be hosting a Family Halloween Movie Night on Friday, October 21, starting at 6pm in Fellowship Hall. We will be showing a G-rated movie. Halloween snacks and juice will be provided. Children of all ages are welcome. Youth 5th grade and up are invited to the youth room for a different movie! Please RSPV to Natalie by October 16 so we can make sure we have enough snacks for everyone.
Annual Church Conference
The Book of Discipline requires every church or charge to have an annual church meeting. It is called either a “charge conference” or a “church conference.” The difference is that at a charge conference only members of the Church Council have a vote, while at a church conference all professing members have a vote. Our Church Conference will be following worship on Sunday, November 6.
If you have not attended before, you may wonder what in the world we do at this meeting. First of all, we celebrate the great work the church has done in the past year. We review our plan for ministry for the upcoming year. The committees and leadership receive a vote, allowing them to lead for the upcoming years. The budget is often approved, though our church conference is on the heels of our stewardship campaign and may not be ready to go just yet. The pastor’s salary is approved. Reports are received. It is a time when we measure the health of our church. Good news! Tosa Avenue UMC is alive and well. You are welcome to join us for this important meeting.
Altar Flowers Needed
Altar flowers add so much to our Sunday morning worship experience, and we are inviting you to think about providing flowers sometime during the coming year. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new 2015 altar flower calendar located in Fellowship Hall (on the side of the refrigerator by the sink). Think about a person you might like to honor, a special date you want to observe, a deceased loved-one you would like to remember by giving flowers. Please sign your name on the chart, along with what you want printed in the bulletin (flowers in honor, in memory of someone, or to celebrate a special day). Specific instructions are posted on the chart.
