Core Ministries


Children are foundational to the entire life and mission of the church. Through weekly programs such as Music Makers and Sunday School we are able to develop personal relationships with each child and support the entire family. At FUMC Waynesville, we know it takes a community to raise a child – we are eager to build that community together.

Small Groups

Small groups are available for all ages with the intention of fellowship, growth, and sharing of love with one another. Contact the church office at any time with any questions. 

Sunday School

Sunday School is offered for all ages on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:45am.
