Prayer Ministry 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Prayer is a vital part of the ministry at WUMC.  There are several opportunities to participate in this ministry both individually and online.

Prayer shawls

The congregation offers prayer shawls to any one who is ill, facing crisis, or celebrating an event in their lives.  The shawls are knitted by congregation members and every stitch is sewn in prayer.  The shawls are blessed during worship and then kept in the small chapel down stairs in the office wing.  Requests for shawls can be given by calling the church office at 512-847-3109 or by contacting
