SUNDAYS

Welcome

Wesley Memorial UMC is a place where people can meet Jesus,  engage in life-giving community, and everyone is welcome. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts and use them for God's glory. We hope you'll join us!

What To Expect

At Worship

9:00 am - Oasis (Contemporary) Worship in the Gym

The Oasis Service at Wesley Memorial involves a large number of volunteer musicians who have a passion for helping to lead others in transformative modern/ contemporary forms of worship. There are opportunities for a wide variety of ages and abilities, including vocalists, keyboard players, those who play electric, acoustic, and bass guitars, and drums. Volunteers who love to run lights, camera, and/ or sound are also greatly appreciated and needed. If you love leading others in worship, are a gifted or beginning musician, wanting to help out behind the scenes, and are willing to share your talents, we would love to have you!

11:00 am - Traditional Worship in the Sanctuary

While our traditional service is more formal in style, you are invited to “come as you are” to celebrate God’s presence and love for us all. Our traditional service features familiar hymns,  inspiring anthems sung by our Chancel Choir, and occasional musical pieces by our Hand Bell Choir and guest instrumentalists. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month.

Fifth Sunday Worship

On Fifth Sundays, we have one worship service at 10:00 am, followed by a fellowship meal and a congregational town hall meeting.  Fifth Sunday worship in 2023 will take place on May 28, July 30, October 29, and December 31.

Children's Worship

Children’s Worship takes place during both the 9:00am and 11:00am services, after the Children’s Moment. There is no Children’s Worship on the first Sunday of the month (for Communion Sunday). During Children’s Worship we have story time and brief discussion about our bible story, and a craft or game and activities. We currently meet in the Sanctuary building in Room 104. We have Godly Play  during Children’s Worship in Room 105 on the second-to-last Sunday of the month.
