Wesley Crayons - Young Adult Group
Wesley Crayons is a collaboration between Renton First and Fairwood Community United Methodist Church. This ministry is geared specifically to people who are 18-35 years old. We chose the Wesley Crayons as our group name: Wesley represents our Methodist heritage and Crayons represents one of our core values- that we want to be inclusive of all.

Bring your favorite side dish and dessert to share; the turkey/main dish will be provided. We'll play board games and eat dinner.

Welcome to Renton First UMC! 

We invite you to come and join us for worship on Sundays. Our church has been a presence in Renton since 1902 and we continue to share God’s love through our faithful discipleship in our community. Take some time and browse our site. Listen or watch our weekly service. Join us in “making disciples for the transformation of the world”. (United Methodist Mission Statement)

We hope that you and your family will experience God’s presence and love as we worship and fellowship together!

Blessings on you!

The Rev. Michele Campton-Stehr
