    Our worship style blends the traditional elements of the United Methodist Church with classic hymns and contemporary praise music, bringing the Scriptures to life for all age groups.

    Our worship service also includes a special message for our children and the opportunity for them to experience age-appropriate worship during Children's Church.

    The United Methodist Church practices the Open Table where all who profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are welcome to receive the elements at Holy Communion. At Wauhatchie UMC children are encouraged to participate in this grace-filled sacrament.

    Please look over our opportunities for worship. We look forward to seeing you soon!
