The Weston United Methodist Church (WUMC) is located at 377 North Avenue in Weston, Massachusetts. A Methodist congregation has worshipped on or near the current church property for more than 200 years.
Although located in Weston, the church congregation of over 200 is drawn from Weston and the surrounding towns of Lincoln, Waltham, Wayland and Sudbury as well as a number of other towns in the region. Members range in age from new born to nonagenarian, with a number of multi-generational families. Worship services are at 10:30 each Sunday, with monthly Sunday afternoon Healing Services. During July and August, worship shifts to 9:30. Children’s Sunday School and Nursery care is offered every Sunday, with “A Time for Children” included during the first part of the service, after which time the children are escorted to class. .
Music is an integral part of worship. Services begin and end with music performed by our Music Director/Organist, Saewon Chun. Special music during each worship service is provided by the Chancel Choir, made up of both professional and volunteer singers.
We seek to make everyone feel welcome. Visitors are welcomed at the door, and have the opportunity to meet the pastor. A visit by the pastor that same day is the norm. Members are encouraged to wear name tags. There are many small group opportunities that encourage participation in the life of the church, including Bible study; serving a monthly meal at a local soup kitchen; a monthly luncheon speaker series; a Shawl Ministry as well as several dinner groups.
In July 2017, Weston United Methodist Church welcomed our new Pastor, Rev. Dr. Jung Sun Oh.
As a Christian believer and ordained pastor, he seeks a balance of personal holiness and social holiness. Every morning he practices his personal spiritual discipline with prayer, Scripture reading and listening, meditation with the singing of Taize songs, and sermon preparation.
For his personal spiritual growth, Rev. Oh has participated in a pilgrimage to the Taize Community in France each of the past four years. He also practices communal or social spiritual discipline: helping the needy in a local church and neighboring communities.He follows the teachings and footsteps of Jesus Christ and John Wesley, the founder of Methodist Movement. The main focus of his ministry and passion is “Celebrating Our Diversity and Unity in Ministry and Mission.”
