Welcome To Waples UMC

Welcome to Waples United Methodist Church!  We are a dynamic faith family committed to living out our love of Christ in the community and in the world.  Through passionate worship, study of scripture, mission in the community, and fellowship with one another, we aim to follow Jesus’ command to go and make disciples. 

We welcome all into our church community as we have all been welcomed so lovingly in God’s family. 

We encourage you to come and visit any time and we look forward to getting to know you.  We hope to see you soon!
