We’ve got answers! Look below for the information you need as you plan your visit to Wesley Church OKC.
It is important to know where we come from as we live into what we are becoming! Wesley was founded as a Methodist Episcopal North church in 1910 in a simple wooden building at NW 32nd and Military. In 1911, the structure was dismantled and moved to NW 25th and Classen . Early church documents state the purpose of the church in those days: “This church exists not for itself, but the community in the midst of which God has placed it. We trust that all persons finding their way here will come to know it as a house of worship, a school for learners, a field for workers, a shelter for the weak, a citadel for the strong —where Jesus reigns alone. ” (Sunday Bulletin, January 2nd, 1927)
