Online Ministries Directory

We wanted to let you know that there are a number of ways to stay connected with Children, Youth, and Adult Ministries groups and classes in online forums here at Westlake UMC. Check out the online meetup schedule below and contact the group representative directly to get plugged in.

Special Adult Summer Sunday School Options

As people travel throughout the summer and normal schedules get disrupted, we like to offer different programming options for adults to connect and grow in their faith during the normal 10-11am Sunday School hour. This gives our regular classes and groups, as well as their facilitators, an opportunity to mix it up with a broader group of people from the church. There will in-person Children’s Sunday School throughout the summer, so your children will also have a place to connect and grow just like you. The following class options listed below will take place each Sunday from 10-11am in the church Library and will also be available via Zoom at the following link.
