Super Sixers (6th Grade) - Room 319
The Super Sixers year is a time for 6th graders to find their place at Wildwood UMC while making friends as they journey through the United Methodist confirmation curriculum. 6th graders are not children anymore, but they are also not teenagers yet. Super Sixers is based upon Luke 2:52 which says, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man." This group meets every Sunday morning throughout the school year and concludes with a Confirmation weekend and final retreat in the spring. Leader: Summer McLemore.

Children's Small Groups (18 months - 3rd Grade)
During the 10am hour, children meet in small groups led by loving, nurturing adults in a mentor role.
