Opportunities to Give at Christmas

Adopt a Grandparent – Donate hats, scarves, gloves, throw blankets and socks for area seniors living in nursing homes. Place your donation in the blue “gift box” in the sanctuary.

Adopt a Star Gift – Look for two types of stars on the tree: \

  • Color Stars: are for youth with AIDS who are orphans in Mexico. Purchase clothing items and an age appropriate toy. Do not wrap, as items must go through customs. Drop off in the office by January 1.
  • Stars with Stickers: are for children in our neighborhood and extended church family. Wrap your gifts, use your star as a gift tag, drop off at the church office by Friday, December 20th.

Adopt a grandparent and the gifts for orphans in Mexico are organized by the Spectrum Center in Fresno. Thank you for your generous hearts.

Prison Gift Bag Packing Day

Thank you to everyone who helped put together gift bags for the incarcerated women at the Chowchilla Federal Prison! Over 2,800 gift bags were made, which included: greeting cards, a toothbrush, lotion, soap, and other items.

And thank you to Fresno State Focus for covering the story. Here is the new’s segment:

If you wish to help pack gift bags or donate items for next year, please email us at office@wesleyfresno.org

Blue Christmas Service

The holidays are not always a happy and joyful time for people. The stress of the holidays, mourning the loss of loved ones and other factors make the holidays difficult. Come join with others for a quiet, meditative service that services these feelings of stress, loneliness and grief. The service will use recorded music and prayer stations as well as a time of silence.

Sew ‘N’ Sews 2nd Annual Fire Sale

Christmas table runners, handmade pillowcases, lap blankets and Comfort Kits will be available for sale. Your purchases will make it possible to continue our mission of donating pillowcases and blankets to Valley Children’s Hospital and pillowcases Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

The Sew ‘N’ Sews will use the proceeds of the fire sale and other tax-deductible donations to buy fabric. All contributions are greatly appreciated any time of the year. Checks can be made out Wesley UMC with the note “Sew ‘n’ Sews.”
