Sunday Worship at Wesley

  • 8:45am – Higher Ground Contemporary Worship – Fellowship Hall Wesley’s contemporary service features contemporary Christian songs, led by our praise band in a relaxed and friendly setting. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and join us as we sing, pray, and worship together. We share communion on the first Sunday of each month. Children are joyously welcome, and there will be a simple, fun children’s message. Child care is available for children under four years of age.
  • 11:00am – Traditional Family Worship – Sanctuary Wesley’s 11:00am service features traditional hymns sung by our choir and accompanied by our organist. Our Sanctuary is a peaceful place to connect with God and our friendly congregation. We share communion on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to worship, including children, and we also offer Sunday School and child care.

Sunday, December 16

Our Advent Sermon Series focuses on the things we easily take for granted in the story of Christmas, with the title, Behold. This week, we will talk about "Behold the Preparer." Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the Magi. We remember those standing at the manger in the Nativity Scene. Still, there is one who can never be forgotten in Jesus’ story of birth. John the Baptist—he prepared the way of Jesus.

There will be one combined service on Sunday, December 23, with the service of Lessons and Carols. All worshipers are invited to join us in the festival of singing, where Wesley Choir, Praise Band, Children’s Choir, and many other musical individuals will come out and celebrate the joy of Christmas!



Children

We have several options for children during worship services at Wesley:

Children are always welcome to attend and participate in our services. Our ushers have children’s bulletins that contain activities for the children. If desired, they can also pick up a canvas worship bag (located in the basket under the bulletin & coffee table during the 8:45 service, and in the basket behind the greeters in our Narthex at 11:00). They contain coloring books, crayons, note pads, books, and Legos. After worship, please return the bag, but keep any paper “masterpieces” your child has made.

Sunday School is held during our 11:00am service. All preschoolers through 5th graders will meet in the Sanctuary at 11:00am. After the Children’s Message, teachers will escort them downstairs to rooms 102 & 104. Parents should pick up children from their classrooms after the service. If your family chooses not to send your child to Sunday School, please know that children are also warmly welcome to sit with their parents!

Children under the age of 4 who do not wish to attend worship are welcome in our nursery, found in room 105. The nursery contains both an infant room and a toddler room (divided by a gated half-wall) and is staffed by two adult caregivers.
