Programs & Ministries

Base Camp:  A free community dinner each week.  Base Camp is a home-cooked meal is served every week.  It’s a great place to meet neighbors and make new friends. And it’s free! The youth from the City Recreation program come for dinner at 5 pm and the doors are open for the whole community at 5:30 pm.  Volunteers are always welcome to help cook, set tables, serve food, visit with our guests and to help clean-up after dinner.  Volunteers are welcome to help for an hour or two or three!

Christian Education:  Sunday School for children is at 10:15 am in the Education East Building. Children come into worship each week for a time with the Pastor and then return to their class for lessons and activities.  Wesley has both paid staff and volunteers taking care of our children.

Food Pantry:  Do you want to help hungry people?  Come to the food pantry every Thursday morning from 9 am to noon to help distribute food.  You can also help fill the grocery bags by donating food items to the pantry.  Needs include canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, toilet paper and dry cereal.

Pink Cow Thrift Shop:  Wesley runs the Pink Cow Thrift Shop as a ministry with our neighbors.  The Pink Cow sells affordable needed items and so much more.  You can always find clothing for men, women, children, and infants; household items, books, and holiday decor.  Monthly half-price sales entice bargain hunters from all over.  Volunteers are always needed!

Sew-N-Sews:  This active group makes blankets and pillowcases for children at Valley Children’s Hospital.  Volunteers cut fabric and sew items – some only cut, some only sew, some do both.  The Sew-n-Sews also work with Dress-a-Girl, making simple but fun dresses for girls, all over the world.

Social Justice:  One of Wesley’s core values is Social Justice.  This ministry keeps the congregation informed and active in matters of justice and peace.  This group leads classes and action activities, informing and leading.  Look in The Encounter and in the weekly bulletin for more information about meeting times and activities.

United Methodist Women:  All women of Wesley are invited to be part of the United Methodist Women. Their activities include education, mission, and fellowship.  Two smaller groups called “circles” meet monthly and the larger group called a “unit” meets periodically throughout the year for a luncheon and program, usually on a Sunday after worship.  See The Encounter and the weekly bulletin for more information.
