What We Do Matters!


This is not the time for family gatherings! Even if everyone seems healthy and well, this is not the time for Easter celebrations! Dr. Rais Vohra, Fresno County Interim Health Officer, is stressing that “even family gatherings can set up a whole cluster of infections.”

Four Ways to Give

This is an unprecedented time for all of us. As one comedian put it, “we are all in this together – far apart.” The church has always depended on gathering together to be the body of Christ. We have gathered our strength and our inspiration from being together. We have depended on receiving our financial support when we are gathered together from our Sunday offering. Now we are forced to “meet” online. We will have to learn new ways and offer new opportunities for giving. Here are some ways to support Wesley with your financial gifts:

  • You can bring your checks to the office. Even though the office closed, you drop off your check in the mail slot that is located to the left of the front door.
  • You can give electronically either by downloading the free GivePlus mobile app or by going to our website and clicking on the “Donate” page or by simply by clicking HERE. You can set up regular electronic giving or make a one time donation. You can direct your donation to the General Fund or to other funds.
  • You can set up regular or one time giving through your own bank’s bill payer.
  • And of course, you can mail in your gift to the church office at 1343 E Barstow Ave., Fresno, CA 93710

Your faithful and generous contributions support the ministries in and through Wesley!
