Advent Calendar and Advent Pack: 
This Sunday, we begin the period of Advent which comprises the roughly 4 weeks before Christmas and invites us to look back in remembrance of the first coming of Jesus Christ into the world while also looking in anticipation of the 2nd. As we begin this Advent season, we invite you journey with the Wesley community of faith by following our Advent calendar of suggested Scripture and prayer requests.  And, if you or your family would like a lot of great ideas for Advent practices and prayers, be sure to pick up an Advent family pack!

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 9th with a very special selection of Christmas music!
Did you know that 10 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.”

Hearing Assisted Devices – Support Team: 
Our new fabulous sound system includes hearing assisted devices – both over the ear and directly into T-coil equipped hearing aids. To take care of this new equipment, we are asking for one or two volunteers who can distribute, collect, and store the devices for Worship each Sunday.  If you can help, contact Pastor Marla at


Christmas Poinsettias:
Between now and December 9th, 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.
