Wesley On the Move! August 4th – August 11th
In Worship: We will continue our 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: Friendless and Alone.”

OCU Starts up Opportunities! Volunteers from Wesley have two great ways to welcome back OCU Stars:
Dinners for Ladies Volleyball team: August 7-12. Meal sponsors are still needed for Saturday and Sunday evening. (All other dates have been filled!) Volunteers are asked to provide a healthy meal for the OCU ladies volleyball team. (They start practice before the cafeteria opens.) Contact Pastor Marla at email@example.com for more information. Look for the sign up sheet!
Pick up international students at the airport: August 10 and 11 (Saturday and Sunday). More volunteers are needed. Contact Pastor Marla at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Look for the sign up sheet!
LGBTQIA+ Listening and learning opportunities: The Wesley Church Council invites the entire Wesley community to be part of continued listening and learning as we discern together Wesley’s next steps as a community of faith. In August there are two opportunities with more coming in September:
August 11th: Showing of the movie Inlaws & Outlaws. Grab a plate at lunch and join us in the parlor for all or part of this 100-minute movie. Inlaws & Outlaws is a documentary that weaves together the true stories of couples and singles – both gay and straight – to create a collective narrative of stories of love, loss and belonging.
August 25th: Facilitated table conversations at lunch. During our community lunch, facilitators will be positioned at some of the tables to invite conversation around two questions: A) How has what you believe about LGBTQIA+ inclusion changed or been affirmed since childhood? B) What key encounters affirmed or changed your beliefs?
