Groups are the heart of ministry at Wake Forest UMC. They're how we connect to each other and to God in discipleship, prayer, service, and fellowship.  It's our hope that everyone at WFUMC be connected to at least one small group to help build relationships and be the hands and feet of Christ in our community.  


Interested in a group but not sure where to start?  Pastor Jen would love to talk with you and help match you to a group that fits your hopes and your schedule.  Reach out by emailing or texting (919) 823-5590

Joyful Tuesdays

Just Old Youth, Outstanding Unique Seniors (Card and games for ages 55+)

JOYOUS seeks to provide Seniors with an opportunity to socialize and enjoy the mental stimulation that cards and games offer.  What we do on a given Tuesday is determined by those in attendance.   Sometimes it's a board game, sometimes it's cards and sometimes there are multiple groups all playing something different.  Don't know how to play something?  We can teach you.   Come Get Your Game On.
