Not new? Welcome (back to) Wesley!  Whether it’s your first year or fourth, it’s never too late to give Wesley a try.

Here are a few things to look forward to as fall kicks off.  Hope to see YOU at Wesley this fall!


Every week, all semester…

 Sundays @ 5pm – Worship.  Student-led music, Communion, and a student-oriented message every week. Dress is casual and we’re done before 6pm. (starts 8/26)

Tuesdays @ 6pm – FREE Dinner & Program.  Homemade dinners, followed by discussions, hot topics, Bible studies, guest speakers, and other programs.  This is a great way to find out more about what you think, doubt, and believe, while listening for God in the midst of a solid faith community. (starts 8/28)
