Youth & Children

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.



At Williamsburg UMC, we believe God is reaching out to all of us, no matter how young we might be! We offer faith formation to our youngest disciples through Sunday Nursery and Children’s Worship, monthly Messy Church, and monthly events for fun and fellowship. We also offer a well-rounded music program, a vibrant preschool and music school, and welcome Cub Scouts through our doors each week. We believe that faith is formed beyond the walls of the church, so we also offer resources to parents and families of all kinds to help your family grow in relationship with God and neighbors.

Children's Ministry



GRADES 6 - 12

As students grow and mature, we believe faith should grow and deepen with them. Our WUMC ReNEW Youth Group is designed to offer holistic faith formation for students in 6th-12th grade that connects our individual stories with God’s Story that is still unfolding. We study the Bible, learn spiritual practices, and respond through creative expression and intentional mission with our neighbors in Williamsburg and beyond.  

Explore not only our dynamic Youth Group but also our enriching Music Ministry and the exciting opportunities with Scouting. Experience faith in action at WUMC through the link below!


  1. Radical Welcome: We believe that everyone has a place at the table. No matter your background, you are welcome here.
  2. Holistic Faith Formation: Our approach goes beyond traditional Bible study. We engage in activities that foster emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth.
  3. Community Impact: We're not just about talking; we're about doing. Our Youth are actively involved in community service projects, making a tangible difference in the lives of others.

Weekly Gatherings: Join us for lunch, faith exploration, and fun on Sundays from 12:30-2:00pm in the Youth Room.
