Resources

Serve

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.

Other Small Groups

Meal in the Dining Hall at 5:30pm. $6 per entrée and $3 per small plate

Pastor Rick will be teaching a class in the Parlor over 1 & 2 Corinthians at 6:00pm.

Contact the church office at (409)892-7733 with any questions.

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.

Bible Studies

Daily Bread
Community Bible Study

January 2024

Starting in January, we are going to read the entire New Testament together in 2024. We will soon make a daily reading schedule available. It will have about one chapter each day and there will be days for you to rest and catch up with your readings for the week as well.

Sermons will be based on some of daily readings from the week before and we hope and pray everyone will participate in some way. We will be using the NRSV translation of the Bible.

Sunday Morning Groups

9:00am

New Class!

Room 103

Who: Adults who want to study the Bible and grow in their love for Jesus in community with othersDuring Lent, we will focus on the spiritual disciplines (prayer, fasting, study, confession…).

In the words of Richard J. Foster, “We must not be led to believe that the Disciplines are only for spiritual giants and hence beyond our reach, or only for contemplatives who devote all their time to prayer and meditation. Far from it. God intends the Disciplines of the spiritual life to be for ordinary human beings: people who have jobs, who care for children, who wash dishes and mow lawns.

In fact, the Disciplines are best exercised in the midst of our relationships with our husband or wife, our brothers and sisters, our friends and neighbors.”
