A Church With Heart in the Heart of the City

The congregation of WSUMC praises and serves God from the heart of the city in ways which reach our neighbors near and far. We welcome all who seek the love and mercy of Christ regardless of race, creed, age, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or economic status. We honor traditions as rooted in our history, our expression of worship, and our respect for theological curiosity. We nonetheless see vital change and ongoing renewal as essential for spiritual growth.


The disciples at Washington Street United Methodist Church value the following:

  • a strong faith demonstrated by mission and service;
  • our love for one another and a deep sense of church community;
  • an historic connection with the local community;
  • meaningful sermons and an inspirational ministry of sacred music;
  • faith, power, and wisdom emerging from theological study; and
  • an openness to diversity and inclusion as expressed in United Methodism’s “open hearts, open doors, open minds” credo.
