Our Story

Established in 1912, Wesley Methodist Church has been a part of the Beaumont area for over 100 years. It’s spot on Major Drive and Folsom is just one of the Beaumont area locations Wesley has called home over the years. With the rest of Beaumont, Wesley has seen hurricanes, watched the area change and grow, and helped thousands of people become disciples who serve Jesus Christ.

Wesley U.M.C. is named for the founder of the Methodist Movement, John Wesley. After experiencing conversion, John Wesley began the Methodist movement which featured innovative ways to share the wonderful news of Jesus and then help people grow in their faith through small group instruction and accountability. The Methodist movement established all kinds of wonderful ministries such as orphanages, universities, hospitals, and global missions and continues this work today.

Wesley U.M.C. exists to “Transform hearts to be passionate for God’s work”. In the book of Acts, we find the wonderful news of how through Jesus Christ, hearts can be transformed and given life abundant and eternal. We invite others to experience this transforming grace in their lives through worship, fellowship, and serving both in the community and in the church.

Consumerism, selfish ambition, and greed are harmful and destructive to us, the church, and our world, yet are bizarrely encouraged in our culture and even by some churches who only seek to entertain. We, however, believe in the way of Jesus. We believe church is the place where we offer our best to God and the people of the Beaumont area.

In the years to come, our church is focused on seeing more and more people experience a gracious transformation of their hearts, so they become passionate for God’s work. We will accomplish this through starting new groups, recruiting and training leaders who are followers of Jesus, and by continuing to live out the unique calling that God has given to Wesley U.M.C.

We hope you will join us!



Jesus came to give us a joy-filled life, and His example reminds us that serving others is a key part. From rocking babies and mowing grass to leading teams and brewing coffee, every person has gifts to share and resources to give to help build God’s church. We make it easy to jump in and get started.

Small Groups

Wesley’s Small Groups provide a place for people to belong so they can become who God has called them to be. Going from “rows” on Sunday morning to “circles” during the week helps us create relationships, allows us the opportunity to “do life” together and move from where we are to where God wants us to be. Small Groups are comprised of men and women from all generations who meet throughout the week. They are a place for those who desire to grow, ask questions, and be encouraged when life gets tough. More than just a group of friends, our groups exist to demonstrate and share the love of Jesus by serving our community.

Our groups create new relationships through shared passions, including Bible study topics, common interest groups, men’s, women’s, children’s, and outreach. Contact the church office for more information or join us at the next scheduled meeting! All are welcome.
