“We Need You!” at our Future Possibility Study
Sunday, October 6th 12:00 – 3:00pm
On Sunday, October 6th, we will gather with Rick McKinley, the Director of Congregational Development for the New England Conference, to look at where we are as a church and where God might be calling us to be in the future. A team has been working on gathering information from community leaders about the needs of our community. We have been gathering data that will be helpful in identifying some of our history and our current situation. Come and hear some of this important information.
Come and share some of your stories. We’ll have lunch together right after church and begin meeting at noon. We will finish by 3 pm. This is an important afternoon for us as a church. We hope you can be here. If you have not already signed up for this, please contact the church office and let us know you are coming. If you suddenly discover that you are able to attend, but didn’t respond – come anyway!
This year we will have our annual Blessing of the Animals service at the beautiful Butterfly Farm at 681 Great Road in Lincoln. This short service is set for Sunday, September 22 at 1 pm. Our pets are important members of our families and a cherished part of God’s creation. Bring your pets of all species and sizes! There will be chairs set up in the barn and refreshments will be served after the service.
With the summer coming to a close, Wesley returns to 10 am Sunday Worship on September 8. That Sunday we will also have registration for Sunday School for any children or youth who wish to participate.
Sunday, September 15 will mark the beginning of Sunday School classes which take place during the 10 am Worship hour. Children and youth begin worship with their families and then depart for Sunday School following the children’s story. On this first Sunday back to Sunday School we will host a Welcome Luncheon immediately following the service for all who wish to stay. There will be plenty of food (we’re Methodists after all!) and gluten, dairy and nut free items to ensure all can enjoy the meal.
We are collecting school supplies for Bridge Liberia to distribute to school children in Liberia now through September 8. It’s a great time to take advantage of the sales going on in stores! Please bring all donations to the narthex. Contact the church office with any questions or donations.
Suggested items include: Notebooks, pencils, erasers, folders, rulers, markers, pens, coloring books, pencil cases, crayons, scissors and calculators.

Liberia Breakfast Fundraiser
Saturday, August 17, 2019
8:00 – 11:00am
The Wesley United Methodist Church, in collaboration with the Liberians that worship with Wesley UMC, have embarked on a project to support children in Liberia.
We are raising funds to provide scholarships for students in the WLP Brumskin and JC Early United Methodist schools in Buchanon, Grand Bassa County. WLP Brumskin is the school of Wesley member Sunni Kelly’s Jr High education. Initiated in 2018, 45
students from these two schools have benefited to date.
In light of the above, there will be a breakfast on Saturday, August 17th from 8am
to 11am to raise funds in order to continue helping the children of Liberia. The breakfast is free, but your donation is highly appreciated. Thanks for all you do for the people of Liberia.
