We were all created to be in community and to be the hands and feet of Christ.  Interested in joining a group or findng a way to serve?  Pastor Jen would love to talk and help you get connected.


Wake Forest UMC is a Christ-centered, service-driven, community of believers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The Bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. 


Wake Forest UMC strives to be a church without walls that engages with our community around us. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost, lonely, and hurting. Wake Forest UMC makes an effort to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our city changed through our service as the hands and feet of Jesus.


Wake Forest UMC highly values our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.
