Important Sunday School Change:
Beginning March 1st, West Des Moines United Methodist Church will be adding an additional Sunday worship service, shifting service times to 8, 9:30. and 11am. Because of this change, Sunday School will be shifting to run from 9:30-10:30. This will make Sunday School concurrent with our middle worship service. If you have any questions about this change, please feel free to contact Morganne Reinboldt.
The Midweek Refuel is after-school and evening programs and activities that run September 25th through May. Activities include children’s choirs, bell choirs, dinner, and education opportunities. Each week on Wednesday, our church will be cooking up dinner favorites! Come and join us for

This month, we will learn what God’s love means and how we can express that love. Week one, we will learn about why we love others: We love others because Jesus first loved us. Week two, we will learn about how we can love others with our time. Week three, we will learn that God asks us to love others because they matter to God. Week four, we about how to love God with everything we’ve got. Join us in the month of February to learn about how to put love in the mix!
Parent Cue App
Here at WDMUMC, we use a curriculum called ThinkOrange. This curriculum focuses a lot on the phases that our children go through and appeals to the questions they may be having about themselves, their faith, and their life. Through this curriculum, we have access to an app called ParentCue. You can download this app, find our church, and connect to the content that your child has been learning about, learn about what phase of life you child may be in, and have access to activities you can do with your child throughout the week to engage them in their faith. This is a great tool for parents!
