You have reached the cyber home of Willoughby United Methodist Church. We're glad you stopped by. WUMC has been faithful to the call of being God's people since 1818.

For those many years Willoughby Methodists have been making, maturing, and ministering to disciples of Jesus Christ and mobilizing them to share God's love with the world. We have inherited this legacy. We want to pass it on.

If you are in the area, please stop in for a visit. You will receive a warm welcome. Be sure to let us know that you received this invitation through our website.

We've received so many awesome photos of Flat Jesus from locations near and far, including: trips to the Hoover Auditorium at Lakeside, Beach City, Camp Wanake, FJ Novelty, Fripp Island, South Carolina, UMC Annual Conference, Florida, Western Reserve and more!

This visible expression of our faith reminds us that Jesus is with us wherever we go. Jesus does not stay in the church between Sundays but is also outside the Church with us everyday as we partner with God to do HIS work in the world.   Please continue to email your photos with Flat Jesus to Stacy Becker at
wumceduc(at) and include brief description of your adventures!
