This Week at Wesley…

Hi Everyone,

It’s been good seeing friendly faces at Foundation events this week.  If you haven’t stopped by the Foundation yet, there’s something going on almost every day of the week. Come check us out, you’re always welcome.

This week we’re starting two new weekly activities and have our fall service retreat. Tuesday at 8 is our Faces of Faith first year small group. Meet at the Foundation at 8 for a surprise field trip. Even if you can’t make it this week, you can still come later.

Starting this Wednesday at 5 is a free Yoga class. It will meet in the Foundation living room with a professional instructor. All are welcome.

Wesley’s first service project will be gleaning on Saturday, September 20. Gleaning is the act of harvesting less profitable farmland and donating the food to the poor. We will be picking apples so come celebrate fall with Wesley by meeting others and serving Christ! Email Nina (nwr2e) if you’re interested or RSVP to the facebook invite (http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php#/event.php?eid=24491182414) by Wednesday, September 17. Don’t forget that the service trip will secure you a FREE Wesley Foundation t-shirt! Meet at the Foundation at 7:15am.

Here’s what we’ve got going on this week:
