Youth Shine at Wesley Children’s Sunday

Thanks to all who contributed to the service on June 7 celebrating the children and youth of our church.  It was wonderful to celebrate all of their gifts and talents, from the preK-1st graders doing the prayer of dedication following the offering, to our graduating high school seniors singing and delivering the sermon.  Here are a few videos of Victoria Parks singing the offertory and Paul Parks III delivering an impressive sermon.  We are certainly blessed at Wesley and very proud of our youth!

Church Clean-Up

20150530_103548Thanks to all who volunteered their Saturday morning to make Wesley UMC and its grounds shine. The dedication of our members to doing this work as volunteers means that more of our budget can support the mission projects locally and globally that fulfill our mission of making a difference through sharing the love of Jesus Christ. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!

Youth Group Completes 30 Hour Famine

IMG_2656The Wesley UMC Youth Group completed another 30 Hour Famine, learning about hunger in the world by being hungry, for the world.  Using the theme, it’s our fight, they not only went without food for the 30 hours, they participated in the US Postal Service’s Stamp Out Hunger campaign by helping sort and crate food items collected by the Postal Workers.  Through education, experience, community service, and fellowship, we all learn to be better citizens of the world, and followers of Jesus.

Our Support of Liberia Bridge

094 - CopyFor the past year, Wesley UMC has supported Liberia Bridge, a non-profit project led by Wesley member Donowea Towah that is working to provide school supplies and other educational supports for schools in Liberia. After the delivery of school supplies donated by Wesley UMC was delayed for many months due to the health crisis that faced Liberia over the past year, Donowea shared with all of us that the supplies have been delivered and well received by the young people who need them.

996Schools in Liberia bear little resemblance to schools in the United States, with dirt floors, no desks and certainly no technology.

What can seem like a very small donation on our part here – of pencils, notebooks and other supplies – makes a significant difference to these young people.  Liberia Bridge plans to continue supporting these schools with more donation drives, as well as raising funds to help make structural repairs to the building and grounds.
