Wesley On the Move! July 21 – July 28
In Worship: We will begin a new worship series, entitled “Unafraid” that will offer insights into living with courage and hope in uncertain times. Based on the book by Adam Hamilton, topics we will take up in the coming weeks include: crime, terrorism, failure, disappointing others, insignificance, loneliness, missing out, change, aging, dying and illness. This week: “Unafraid: Living in an Age of High Anxiety.”
