At First United Methodist in Waynesville our hope for each child is that they will be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world today. We want our children to know God, to accept Jesus as Immanuel, God with us, and to ask the Holy Spirit to use their lives so that others will experience the love of Jesus through knowing them.
