Interested in membership or baptism?

New classes are forming in September.  Please talk to Pastor Karen if you wish to join Wesley and/or be baptized.  The United Methodist Church believes in one baptism and we recognize the baptisms of all Christian churches.  If you have been baptized before you do not need to be baptized again.

SSP spaghetti success

I just wanted everyone to know that the spaghetti lunch fundraiser was a great success.  Thanks to everyone who bought tickets, enjoyed the time of food and fellowship, and helped with logistics.  The event raised $1,318 toward the youth mission trip this summer in Oregon.
