Come Worship with Us

At Wesley, Sunday worship is each week at 10 am. All are welcome!

January 6th is Epiphany. We celebrate the Magi who came to see and worship
the Baby Jesus and then returned by a different road. Sometimes we find ourselves needing to travel a different road. The Good News is that God is with us as we explore the new roads in our lives.

January 13th is Laity Sunday. Thanks to our outgoing Lay Leader Dan Genannt and our incoming Lay Leader Lynne Lamarre for planning worship this Sunday.

January 20th our District Superintendent, Rev. Dr. Andrew L. Foster III will be our guest preacher.

December Celebrations

Season of Advent – Celebration of Christmas – Calm and Bright

Are you looking for some hope, peace, love and light in this Holiday season? Sometimes we feel as if they are missing from our lives. Our communities, our churches, and our world are torn and divided about many issues of cultural contention. Families fight, politicians argue, posts spread ignorance and hate on the Internet and it is easy to feel that hope, peace, love and light are missing.

This year is the 200th anniversary of the debut of “Silent Night, Holy Night”. In a world where there often seems to be very little calm, and darkness so often abounds, the message of peace and light of this carol highlights a call that can guide us all year long as we seek to make this world a better place.

Adopt-A-Family for Christmas

We will be doing the Adopt-a-Family program again this year. We identify and donate to families in need of support this holiday season. We’ll be using the Scrip gift cards to divide among chosen families in need of support at this time of the year. You can participate very simply! All you have to do is purchase a gift card or donate money and we’ll purchase the card for you! Cards can be purchased now until Friday, December 14th so we can be ready to deliver on Sunday, Dec. 16th after the service. The more we receive, the more we can fill a home with holiday joy! If you have any questions, please see Debbie Bone or contact Kristen in the office.
