Support Groups

WUMC has many small groups that meet throughout the week. These groups are designed for intimate sharing and mutual support. If you have questions, please contact the group leader listed below, or email for assistance.

Support Group for Children of Aging Parents

This group is for folks with one of more aging parents/in-laws who need a safe space to talk about the ups and downs of care-giving, death, and dying. The Support Group meets every other month in members’ homes for a meal and conversation.

Contact Sue Sherbrooke or Nancy Speer for more information.

Women’s Group

The Women’s Group is for women – single, married, partnered, gay, straight, and beyond – to gather and share the joys and upheavals of life. The Women’s Group also hosts occasional social gatherings and church events where spouses, partners, and friends can join in.

The group usually meets twice monthly on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 7:15PM at the church (please note that there are no meetings in August). Contact Karen Hansen for more details.

Men’s Group

The Men’s Group is a place where all men (straight, gay, married, single, and beyond) can gather to study and share more about life. All are welcome to join in this group, which meets twice monthly.

The Men’s Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays at 7:00PM  in the church library. Contact Doug Conrad for more information.
