Evangelism Ministry

Weddington United Methodist Church offers a variety of ways for people to display God’s Grace to others in our world.  We endeavor to present numerous opportunities to people allowing them to comfortably share in fellowship and mission while nurturing them with God’s Spirit of love and hope.

Evangelism Week

On Sunday, September 29, we asked our whole church family to focus on how we as individuals, families, and small groups can share Christ with others in our community. Sometimes evangelism is a scary word but we like to talk about it as farming: farmers plant seeds and nature takes over and the seed becomes a fruitful plant. Christians plant seeds and God takes over. We heard a message from the pulpit, see a Ministry Moment, and have discussion guidance that all small groups can use to generate vibrant conversation about building our community of faith here at Weddington. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Amy Hutchison

Get Involved!

Neighborhood Invitational Groups We are looking for people to greet those families that newly move into their neighborhoods. We will supply you with a gift bag. Use this tool to invite them to share in a Bible Study, a special event, or come with you to church.  Invite them to share in the family of God while getting to know our Weddington family.

Meet Weddington  At Meet Weddington, our staff answer questions from those who have a desire to join our church and become more involved in our Weddington family. Come and connect with each other and church staff. Meet Weddington is typically help on the fourth Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m. All are welcome to come and join!

Welcome Centers Greet new guests and any attendees who may have questions about our church. Be the first impression a new guest has to feel at home as they experience God’s loving grace. Welcome Center attendants serve on a rotating basis.

Special Guest Centers for Easter, Christmas, and Special Events We understand that many will attend only during a special event or service. This is the time we recognize that we have a special opportunity to greet these guests. Come and help us demonstrate hospitality to these guests allowing them to feel part of our family, the family of Weddington UMC.

UPWARD Sports UpWard Sports Recreation is a Ministry to allow kids to discover the joy of sports through the actions of getting involved.  They get a chance to create relationships while learning the skills to succeed at the game and at life.  Coaches guide them mentally, athletically, and spiritually, and socially as well as introducing the teachings of Christ which foster positive sportsmanship while also helping develop their character.  Join us to be a coach (or assistant coach), help referee, keep score, or just come out and support the kids.  Basketball, Flag-Football and Soccer.
