I signed up for CitySearch specifically to refute the negative review posted here, I would hate for anyone to not consider WUMC on the basis of one moron's opinion. (so I'll offer this moron's opinion!). I must say that the other poster certainly has interesting priorities...the first negative thing he noted has to do about the floor in the women's restroom? Since he and his partner are gay males, what the heck was he doing in the women's restroom?
Anyway, I have been a member of this church for a long time and it is a very welcoming church. I personally know the ministers - they get to know all the congregation. I have never known them to 'snub' anyone, regardless of race, creed, country of origin or, yes, sexual orientation. The congregation is presently a mixture of older members (who range from stodgy to friendly) and a younger generation of 30s-40s with kids. My wife and I (and our two kids) are part of the latter group (and I would hopefully not yet merit the 'stodgy' label. Give me a few years.). There are two services, one catering to the more traditional and another with more contemporary flavor. There is also an active program of Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, etc. As of 6-09 our church is in transition with its beloved senior minister (Alan Sippel) retiring. We are looking forward to seeing what direction Rev. Garn takes us.
Pros: Thoughtful ministers and staff
Cons: None that I can think of
