Lent & Holy Week Worship at Wesley

During the season of Lent we continue with regular Sunday worship (11am at Wesley Memorial church and 5pm at the Wesley Foundation) but we also have other opportunities to observe the season leading to Easter. We hope you’ll consider joining us for some of these special Lenten worship opportunities. All are welcome.


Ash Wednesday – February 18th

12 noon and 7pm at Wesley Memorial. Join us for a brief service including Communion and the Imposition of Ashes.


Palm/Passion Sunday – March 29th

11am at Wesley Memorial & 5pm at the Wesley Foundation


Maundy Thursday – April 2nd

Good Friday – April 3rd

12 noon: We will gather at the cross on the lawn of the church for a brief outdoor worship service. (Rain site: Wesley Memorial sanctuary)
