Visitors & New Members
We are located at 1529 Wauwatosa Avenue on the edge of the historic village. Access to our parking lot is from Underwood Avenue, one block to the west, directly across from the Fire Station. Okay, we admit it, this may be the most confusing building in Wauwatosa. There are many entrances and once you get inside, it is hard to know where to go. There are two halls (Fellowship Hall and Wesley Hall) on the first level. Fellowship Hall is on the south end of the building and Wesley Hall, the smaller of the two, is on the north end. There are also meeting rooms on this level. The Sanctuary and Chapel, the nursery, as well as staff offices are on the second level. The Sanctuary, with its magnificent stained glass, is on the south end of this level. It is best accessed from the center stairwell. Handicap access to the Sanctuary is available with our small lift located in Fellowship Hall. It goes directly to the Sanctuary. The Chapel is at the northeast end of the second level. The central and northeast stairwells provide access to the third level, which is where our Sunday School and Children’s Choir rehearsal rooms are located. As you enter any of the doors to the building, you will find signage pointing you to the locations of the various rooms.
Our congregation is a diverse group from a variety of backgrounds. Some are lifelong United Methodists and others have come to us from many other traditions. Wherever you are coming from, we invite you to join us.
Our 8:15 am Sunday worship service is in the Chapel and is traditional in style. This is a smaller, more intimate gathering. The 9:45 am service takes place in the Sanctuary and is a blend of styles with a Bible-centered message that connects with our everyday lives. Musical styles at this service range from traditional organ and choir music to music led by our Praise Ensemble. We have children’s choirs, a bell choir, and often have instrumentalists as part of our worship.
We would love to help you connect with God and with other people through Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church. Please explore our website to learn about the many opportunities we offer.
