LGBTQA+ Discussions Continue: All persons currently associated with Wesley Church (whether a member or not) are invited to find a group where they feel comfortable, and go through a set of materials that will be used across all such groups. We will pray, reflect, and then upon examination of your own heart and faith, respond to the question about “where are you on this issue of LGBTQIA+ inclusion at Wesley?” Please pick up a set of materials on Sunday. Three special discussion groups are set for this week:
Sunday, May 5, during lunch – facilitated by Pastor Jeremy (in the library – bring your plate)
Wednesday, May 8, at 11:30 AM – facilitated by Pastor Marla (in the library – bring your lunch, if desired)

OIMC Special offering: All churches in the Oklahoma Annual Conference are encouraged to collect a special offering for the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference (OIMC) to further the missional outreach of our Native American churches. OIMC churches often serve poverty ridden areas and the ministries of OIMC churches reach deep into the community offering help, relief, and hope to the people of their mission field. We will take up a special offering on Sunday, May 19th.
Also, Sunday May 5th is our next all church pot luck lunch! Bring your favorite dish (homemade or store bought) to share! And, the Wesley Women United Boutique will be open during the lunch time!
