We will begin a new three-week sermon series entitled, “A Living Sacrifice” grounded in the scripture Romans 12:1-5. In addition, this is All Saints Sunday, so we will remember the saints of Wesley who have transitioned to the Church Triumphant since November 1, 2017. And lastly, we will celebrate our Children and Youth ministry at Wesley!
POTLUCK Fellowship Lunch and Boutique Open
This Sunday (November 4) is also our next monthly potluck lunch – bring your favorite dish to share! Also, the women’s boutique will be open during lunchtime with lots of Fall clothing and accessories.
Volunteers Needed for New Sanctuary AV!
In late November, we will unveil our new Sanctuary audio visual system which will allow us to: record and livestream our worship services, show short videos and other visuals during the worship service, replaced our very old sound system, and provide hearing assistance for those affected with hearing loss.
To fully utilize our equipment, we are forming groups of folks who will serve on Sunday mornings as: camera operator, soundboard operator, presentation computer operator, and director. Training is currently scheduled for November 17th. If you’re interested in learning more or if you have questions, contact Pastor Marla at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday Thanksgiving Lunch on Sunday, November 18
Bring your favorite Thanksgiving sides, salads, and desserts to share during our Sunday lunch after Worship! The Explorer’s fellowship group has graciously offered to prepare the turkey and gravy!
Thanksgiving Eve Dinner, Wednesday, November 21, 5-7 p.m.
The notion that “no one eats alone” on Thanksgiving is the impetus for this annual gathering. Last year, Wesley was able to serve over 50 guests at our Thanksgiving Eve dinner thanks to your generous and delicious food offerings! If you are able to assist this year, please respond to Susan Howard 990-8036, email@example.com, OR sign up on the sheet outside the West office. Ready-to-serve food should be in the parlor no later than 4:30 p.m. on the day. Thank you in advance for supporting this gathering!
Exodus House Thanksgiving Dinner
Our friends at Exodus House will be celebrating Thanksgiving at Wesley on Tuesday, November 13th at 6:00 PM. If you would like to help with this meal, contact Sara Schieman at firstname.lastname@example.org or Fran Parkhill at email@example.com. ALSO, we are collecting gently used Christmas decorations that residents can select from during the meal to decorate their apartment. If you have Christmas decorations to donate, leave you contribution in the Quilt Room on Level 1.
