I guess it happens to the best. This sign perched at the fork of Classen and Douglas decided it was its time to go. Or at least, a fender bender involving three cars did. Luckily, there were no injuries, except for our poor little sign. Little thing was defenseless as the mass of metal just …

This year, Circle of Care’s CHILD SHARE foster care program will be using space at Wesley to collect, wrap, and distribute gifts to foster children. Beginning in mid-November, Wesley will be working with CHILD SHARE. We look forward to this relationship
More information on Child SHARE:
[Shelter Homes: A Rescue Effort]
There are more than 10,000 children in Oklahoma’s foster care system. On any given day there are 150 children in need of a foster home, which has yet to be found. When a foster or adoptive home is not available, these children stay in county shelters. The Oklahoma United Methodist Circle of Care found a solution through a program called Child SHARE.
Child SHARE works with licensing agencies, faith communities and volunteers to recruit and support full time foster families, adoptive and respite families. This network helps provide for their physical, emotional, spiritual and financial needs.
Child SHARE provides families with clothing and equipment, support groups, and family events. Child SHARE services are available in the Lawton, Oklahoma City and Tulsa areas.
Child SHARE is an ecumenical non-profit program, which recruits parents and volunteers from faith communities to be involved in some capacity of fostering children. By having a strong physical, emotional and spiritual support system wrapped around the foster families and children, the families are more able to nurture the children in their care.
Child SHARE recruits full-time foster and adoptive parents, backup/respite parents, mentors, babysitters, special friends and financial supporters. Welcome basket volunteers are important team members who are also involved in ministering to hurting children.
This year, Wesley celebrates its stewardship campaign in conjunction with the annual Thanksgiving Luncheon prepared by the Explorers group, The campaign’s crescendo comes as members will be encouraged to drop off their tithing commitments cards for 2014 at the Thanksgiving dinner. A decorated holiday basket will adorn each tabletop
What better time than Thanksgiving to celebrate all that Wesley church is thankful for including an energized newly appointed minister, Dr. Marvin J Hudson, hard working church support staff, enthusiastic volunteers and dedicated lay leadership.
Wesley’s future depends on members working towards one, unified goal and showing their commitment to the church.
Tickets for the Thanksgiving Dinner go on sale this Sunday, October 27 immediately following service.If you did not receive your stewardship pledge cards or need additional, please contact the church office at 405.525.3521, ext. 103.
