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.
Pentecost • 165th Anniversary • Music Ministries Sunday: May 19
Pentecost falls on the Sunday closest to our church birthday, May 22, 1848. So, on the day the general church marks as their birthday (with the coming of the Holy Spirit among a huge crowd of people), we will be officially celebrating our birthday. In addition, all of our choirs will be sharing with us. Not only will we have cake during fellowship hour, but there will be historical displays and plenty of great photos to look at in fellowship hall, as we celebrate our history. And our ASP group will be selling baked potatoes & all the toppings, so we can stay for lunch!
Garden Celebration Sunday-June 2nd
The gardens offer so much to our church. They welcome visitors, provide us an opportunity to reflect and enjoy the beautiful flowers. In past years, the garden committee has had a flower sale to help support our church gardens. Instead of this sale, as we did last year, we have chosen a Sunday where we celebrate our church gardens. In worship, the service will focus on the importance of having natural spaces around us, with themes taken from Psalm 23. There will be a free will offering for the upkeep of our gardens on this day. Following worship, we will feature an activity out in the garden for children as well as adults, pending weather. Come and be with us this day as we begin summer in a fun way.
Pastor Sue's Book Discussion-Sunday July 21st
Pastor Sue’s next book discussion book will be “Flight Behavior” by Barbara Kingsolver.This novel is set in present day Appalachia. It provides a picture of life in that part of our country, as well as helping us grapple with environmental issues. “Kingsolver's riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factionsreligious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politicianstrapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world.” There’s a lot to talk about in this book! Any interested persons are invited to meet in the east end of Fellowship Hall on Sunday, July 21, at 11am to share in the discussion. This is a popular book. There are numerous copies in our public library system, but you may need to put a hold on a copy. The paperback is scheduled to be released early in June.
