Serve Locally

Meals on Wheels

Do you have one day, one hour, and one gallon of gas you can spare? Then Meals On Wheels is the thing for you! All it takes is you picking up the meals, you driving to the route, and giving the meals to those on the route. It sounds simple, but it is a great way to love on people and bring them a meal they otherwise wouldn’t be able to have.

Routes are available, all we need is you.

UM Army Hosting

Each year Wesley hosts a UM Army. This is a week-long youth camp that comes in the summer, where out-of-town churches send their youth to come and work on people’s homes that are in need of repair or improvement. As part of hosting, Wesley provides some of their meals and a few hours in members’ homes for the workers to clean up and shower in the evenings.

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.

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

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.
