Welcome to Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church!


We invite you to take a look at us—check out our website for the details, and better yet, check us out in person some Sunday morning.  If you are looking for a mid-sized, downtown, mainline Protestant Church in Wauwatosa, maybe we are the one for you.

Get Social with WAUMC
Do you know that the church has a Facebook page and a Twitter? You can “like” us on Facebook by adding Wauwatosa Avenue UMC as a friend or you may “like” our page, Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church. Either way will get you weekly information, pictures of events, and frequent updates. Make sure you check in often to stay up-to-date with the latest news. If you want to “follow” us on twitter we can be found at @WauwatosaAveUMC. If you are having trouble finding us, you may also check here, and click on the Facebook and Twitter badges (on the left hand side of the screen). They will take you directly to our pages, then sign in to your account and “like” or “follow” us.

Summer Music

Sing Your Story, Share Your Faith

Once again it’s time for our hard working choirs to take some well-deserved rest. Our summer music schedule has kicked off. This opportunity is open to any member of our congregation and can be offered at the 9:45 service. We encourage family and friends to participate as well. You are invited to share a special selection (vocal or instrumental) that expresses your faith. There are two slots per service. A link to the online Sign-Up Genius scheduling program is provided below. We will also send out this link electronically so it’s easier to access. If you would rather sign up in person or you have any questions, see Tim or Heather. Send Tim an email at tim.karth@sbcglobal.net or call/text at 414-688-6805. Here is the link:

School Supplies Needed

Mission Committee is once more collecting school supplies both for school bags for the Annual Conference Ingathering and for Northcott Neighborhood House. “Back to School” sales are a great time to purchase these supplies. We especially need:

·         spiral notebooks (at least 70 pages)

·         12 inch rulers with metric

·         24 packs of Crayola Crayons

·         blunt school scissors

·         1" x 2" erasers

·         unsharpened pencils

·         enclosed pencil sharpeners

We need help sewing bags. Anyone interested in sewing school bags should contact Carolyn Dressler (hocad@att.net) for fabric and the pattern.

Hunger Doesn't Take Summer Vacation

Neither does our Ingathering effort. Please help feed our neighbors by bringing canned goods — especially protein or meals, breakfast cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, baby food, etc. to church. Put your nonperishable, good-condition food gifts in the grocery cart at the bottom of the central stairs, and we will take the food to the Wauwatosa Food Pantry at St. Bernard’s. Gifts in the offering plate marked for Ingathering will go to The Hunger Task Force or local pantries and meal programs. Thank you!

Also, check out www.hungertaskforce.org for other places to bring nonperishable foods to get discounts on festivals, etc.

Special Alert: The Tosa Food Pantry is in need of packaged toilet paper for their customers!


Altar Flowers Needed
Altar flowers add so much to our Sunday morning worship experience, and we are inviting you to think about providing flowers sometime during the coming year. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new 2015 altar flower calendar located in Fellowship Hall (on the side of the refrigerator by the sink). Think about a person you might like to honor, a special date you want to observe, a deceased loved-one you would like to remember by giving flowers. Please sign your name on the chart, along with what you want printed in the bulletin (flowers in honor, in memory of someone, or to celebrate a special day). Specific instructions are posted on the chart.
