In April, the “Return Team” and Braver Angels presented a church wide workshop called “Depolarizing Within” in which we examined our attitudes toward people and groups with whom we disagree and learned strategies for disagreeing without condemning or ridiculing others.
In our faith community’s ongoing work to bridge differences of opinion in compassionate and inclusive ways, we have an opportunity to go deeper and put our skills into practice.
Join us for a “Red-Blue Workshop”!
The “Red-Blue Workshop” brings together a small, evenly divided group of 6-8 conservatives and liberals, or “reds” and “blues,” for a series of exercises designed to help participants clarify disagreements, reduce stereotyped thinking, and discover common values. When you...more

Sunday, October 15, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Maybe you’re brand-new to Westlake UMC (WUMC), or perhaps you’ve attended a service here for years and are looking to take the next step. Either way, Starting Point is a can’t-miss, in person with lunch event designed to answer your questions, share the Westlake UMC vision, and help you plug in. It’s the first step in becoming an official member—where you’ll learn about WUMC’s history, the resources we have to support you, and how you can find the one ministry (or five) that you’re really passionate about. If you’re not ready to become a member, no worries! Plan to take part on Sunday, October 15, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact me at 512.924.6733, or email@example.com. Hope to see you there! Pastor Margot Annmore

There are lots of opportunities to help welcome our community. Help set-up, greet families, serve food and drinks, host games, clean-up and more! Sign up here to volunteer to help with the event.more
Most of us have heard that some United Methodist congregations have voted to leave the UMC, but we may not know much more than just that. On Sunday, January 22, the Fellowship Class will host Pastor Tracey and Jay Brim to present information and answer our questions. We are fortunate to have access to such expertise – Tracey for our congregation’s perspective and Jay for the big church (UMC).
What is the issue? What is the plan? And what questions do you have? Everyone is invited. We will meet in the sanctuary to accommodate a larger gathering - starting promptly at 10:10 am. It will also be livestreamed here.
The Fellowship Class hopes that you will join us on the 22nd.more
