Our Story

Our congregation was founded in 1848, and we have always been located in close proximity to the historic village of Wauwatosa, having been at our current site, since 1868.  We worship in a sanctuary that is blessed with a great pipe organ and traditional stained glass windows.  Yes, traditions are a part of our heritage, but we are regularly building new traditions with contemporary people, offering a faith that’s relevant for our time.  We seek to be a church with a message people can understand, and a group of people to whom others can relate.  We are committed to inclusiveness and we celebrate a diversity of people and ideas that are enriched by our histories.


The Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist congregation is made up of people of all ages, from a baby born just last month, to a long-time member who has reached 102 years of age.  Some of us have been a part of the church since before we can even remember, and others of us are beginning an affiliation with a faith community for the first time. Our community enjoys interacting across the generations, as we gather for worship, share in fellowship, and work together on service projects.
