In Worship: Advent begins and so does our new Worship series entitled, “Sacred: Finding the Holy in the Everyday.”  The word “sacred” points to something dedicated as “holy” and “set apart.” Far too often, the sacred becomes obscured by the secular. This year, we invite you to a spiritual journey of seeing all things pregnant with the possibility of the holy.  This week: “Sacred Time”.

And, each week we need photos of where you see the sacred in everyday life.  Please email them to Nicholas Szabo at  They’ll be shown each Sunday during the Threshold Moment!

Choir Christmas Music Festival and Choir Scholarship Fund Special Offering:  For several weeks, our Wesley Sanctuary choir has been preparing special music for Advent and will lead our Worship on December 8th with a very special selection of Christmas music!Did you know that 8 of the OCU students who are part of the Wesley Sanctuary Choir receive a choir scholarship from Wesley Church?  These gifted students are music and musical theater majors at OCU and support themselves, in part, by a small scholarship they receive from Wesley Church.  Each student receiving the scholarship auditioned and receives $50 a week for a 2 hour practice each Wednesday night and 1 ½ hours on Sunday morning. This Sunday, we’ll take up a special offering for our choir scholarship fund.  And, you can make a donation at any time to the fund by simply marking your donation “choir scholarships.”

Toilet Paper Drive for Skyline Food Pantry Clients!  Toilet paper is certainly a needed item but is sometimes hard to buy when families and individuals live on a limited income.  So, throughout December, we will be collecting toilet paper for our neighbors who shop the Skyline Food Pantry.  Please leave your donation in the Sanctuary.



Christmas Poinsettias: Between now and December 10th, you are invited to purchase poinsettias to adorn the Sanctuary during the Christmas season. Price is $15 and poinsettias can be donated in memory of or in honor of someone. Poinsettias can be taken home and enjoyed after the Christmas Eve Worship service on Monday, December 24th.

Paint and Pray Supplies:  Have you seen/borrowed these supplies from our Paint and Pray ministry: set of 48 Koi paint pens, set of dry pastels, set of archival pens, tin of Prisma colored pencils, and set of thin Prisma colored pencils.  If you have them, please return to the Paint and Pray room. Thank you!
