Join us at Wesley UMC as the youth of our church perform in this year’s Christmas Pageant, “The Evening News Hour.” They will tell the Christmas story as if it were being broadcast on today’s evening news, complete with humorous commercial breaks. After the service, we will all celebrate with a birthday cake for baby Jesus.
The Christmas season is a time when the juxtaposition of the sacred and secular feel sometimes blatantly opposed, and sometimes quite blurred. The word “sacred” points to something dedicated as “holy” and “set apart.” This year, we invite you to a spiritual journey of seeing all things alive with the possibility of the holy. What could your Christmas season experience be like if you lived it looking through the kaleidoscope of the sacred?

Wesley will once again participate in an Adopt a Family program this year, donating to families in need of support this holiday season. It’s easy to participate. All you have to do is purchase a gift card or donate money and we’ll purchase for you. Cards can be purchased from now until Sunday, December 18th. The more we receive, the more we can fill a home with holiday joy! If you have any questions, see Debbie Bone or contact Kristen in the office.
District Superintendent Seok Hwan Hong will be coming to Wesley for the annual Church Conference on Thursday, December 8. The SPRC will meet with him at 6 pm and the Conference will begin at 7 pm. For more details, please contact Pastor Beverly or Kristen in the office.
Team Jean will be participating in Relay for Life of Lincoln/Cumberland once again in the summer of 2017 to raise money for the American Cancer Society in memory of Pastor Jean Parks.

We are, however, starting our fundraising early! We will be selling t-shirts during the month of November which will be available in time for Christmas gift giving. The cost will be $15 per shirt regardless of size, and they will be available in both youth and adult sizes. Order here. You can either have them shipped direct to your home for a small shipping fee, or shipped free to Ashley and those orders will be available for pick up at church.
Last day to order is November 16th! Estimated shipping date is December 13th.
