Join us in Worship on Sunday, December 15 at 10 a.m. for Wesley’s Annual Children’s Christmas Pageant. This year, the children will enact “The First Christmas” by Louise Egan. This is the story of the first Christmas, the night Jesus Christ was born. We celebrate this to remember the hope and joy that this tiny baby brought to the world on that extraordinary night in Bethlehem almost 2000 years ago.
After a busy November we look forward enjoying some time of fellowship and remembering the reason for the season. We would like to invite all students who are in the 7th – 12th grade to our annual….

Service of Comfort and Rest
December 15 at 7 P.M.
Christmas is “the most wonderful time of the year…”
But not if you’ve suffered grief or illness or job loss, a relationship that has fractured…
If your heart is broken this Christmas season, the Christian faith has something to say about it.
Come on December 15 for a very special Service of Comfort and Rest.
Come as you are, and leave assured that in this season of Immanuel, God truly is with you.
Advent season is a journey toward joy, a time of preparation that too often gets consumed by our busyness, until we risk missing the heart of the Christmas celebration. For this season, we’ll couple the rich traditions from Luke’s gospel with a treasured section of Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian Christians. As Luke retells the stories concerning the events leading up to the birth of Jesus, Paul will remind us how we live the hope, joy, love, peace and light of Advent and Christmas.

Wesley will participate again this year in the Adopt-a-Family program for the holidays. We will collect gift cards to give to families in need, so that they may experience the joy of shopping for gifts to give to children and loved ones themselves. If you are interested in participating, we encourage you to purchase gift cards from the church (either after worship on Sundays or in the office during the week) and give them to Debbie Bone or Becca Erikson by Sunday, Dec. 8.
