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.

Connection Groups

Connection Groups of 8-10 people are forming that will meet at a variety of times and places to discuss each week’s message. During these informal gatherings, groups will dive deeper into Pastor Don’s sermon and scripture. Enthusiastic leaders have volunteered to guide the discussions that will include questions provided by Pastor Don as well as those raised by members of the group. Participating in a Connection Group can be a great way to ask questions, explore the message more deeply, and consider how it relates to your life. You will also meet new friends, share some laughs and good times together, and grow closer to God. Everyone is invited, so we encourage you to invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to participate. Check the Broadcaster, website, and the church bulletin for the days and times that Connection Groups will be meeting. To sign up or get more information, fill out the back of the connection card in your bulletin. You can also call Lisa Richards (440-773-4300) or Carolyn Lingenfelter (440-479-5978), the coordinators, if you have questions.


Fall Connection Groups will begin the week of September 21st.  As a church family, we will be discussing "6 Things We Should Know About God".


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
