In Worship: We continue our Worship series – “The Tie That Binds” – based on the Scripture passage:  “Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful” (Colossians 3:14-15).  Relationships form us.  In this worship series, we are invited to consider how our relationships with the Holy One and with each other form and transform us.  This Sunday:  The Tie That Binds: Moved.

Celebrating Our Christian Community at Wesley:  During the coming months, we will celebrate our Christian community in several familiar and new ways!  Please mark your calendar for these upcoming gatherings:

Sunday, October 20 – Wesley Annual Chili Cookoff
Saturday, November 2 – (at 8:30 AM) Service project at Skyline Urban Ministry
Sunday, November 10 – Wesley Annual Thanksgiving Meal

World Communion Sunday, October 6th:  We’ll celebrate World Communion Sunday on October 6th, and we are asking for your help.  Please bring fabric from around the world.  We’ll drape the fabric over the chancel to create a world quilt!  Just bring your fabric a few minutes before worship and take it home when the service concludes!

Care Meals for the Warners:  Longtime Wesley friends Bishop Bennie, Anna, and Mardea Warner have asked for our help to provide a few healthy meals each week that they can heat & eat or thaw quickly from the freezer.  So, we are beginning to provide “Care Meals” and need your participation!   Each Sunday morning, Wesley will collect prepared food donations from you for the Warners.  Your donation can be homemade or store bought.   Bring your donation to the West office and it will be placed in the refrigerator or freezer in the children’s area.  Please provide a main dish or side dish items (such as grains, vegetables, fruits).  Casseroles are perfect too! —– no fried foods or sugary items. (Pertaining to chicken, the Warners prefer dark meat and wings.)   Please put a DATE on all items.  If you want your dish returned, make sure your name is clearly visible.

Thank you from the Warners:  “Greetings from the Warners to our Wesley family – thank you so much for helping to provide meals during these challenging times for us. Being able to have a varied selection of food each week has been most appreciated. Thank you so very much!”
