Our Vision is to be an inclusive church that shines a discerning light on the needs around us. Responding in love and compassion, we will be full and active participants in God’s transformation of the world. Our aim is for the heart of God and the soul of mankind. Persons of all races, ages, abilities, and sexual orientations are welcomed as full participants in the life and mission of the congregation.
We Grow with God through fellowship, study, discussion, personal growth and spiritual enrichment. Come join us !
At Wesley, a “NEST” is a small group of church friends where people can belong, be supported, and explore Christian faith and its implications for daily living. It's a place to share life, to collectively do good, and to grow together as members of the family of God.
For more info about Wesley NESTs, or for help in joining/building one, please contact Bill Broadrick (email@example.com) or call the church office at 224-7413.
