On Sundays mornings in the middle of worship, the children leave for their own time in our children’s space. Volunteer adults lead them in Bible stories, activities and lessons to help them grow in the love of God. Our church uses Safe Sanctuary practices.
WUMC joins with Avondale, East Lake and Highlands UMCs to form a co-op for our youth, 6th through 12th grades. On first Sundays middle school and high school groups meet separately at Birmingham-Southern College. On third Sundays the group meets together at various locations. This youth co-op, known as East AvonWood High, is a safe place for those identifying as LBGTQ.
