Wesley On the Move eNewsletter for April 16-April 23

April 16 – April 23


This Sunday

Jesus Christ our Lord IS RISEN indeed!  Come join the celebration in Worship of Jesus’ resurrection at 10:30 AM.  Our come-and-go Easter breakfast will be served downstairs from 9:30-10:15 AM. All, children are invited to hunt for Easter eggs at 9:45 AM.  ALL EGG HUNTERS should be in the Fellowship Hall at 9:45 AM. If it is nice weather, the egg hunt will be outside; otherwise, it will be inside.


Popsicle Party

Our friends at Edgemere School have asked us to host a Popsicle Party to celebrate the completion of state testing for Edgemere students in grades 3-6.  We’ll be bringing our congratulations and a tasty Popsicle to 80 students on Wednesday, April at 2:00 PM.  Come for a few minutes to share your congratulations and pass out Popsicles! (address: 3200 N. Walker Ave.)


OU Wesley in Worship on 4/23

Next Sunday we’ll welcome students from the Wesley Student Center at OU.  Come hear first hand from the students and about the transformative ministry taking place at OU Wesley!


Talent Extravaganza on April 26th at 6:30 PM

Wesley Church is blessed many incredibly talented performance artists. And, on Wednesday, April 23rd, they will bring their favorite works and originals to Wesley’s “Talent Extravaganza!” This fun and talent-filled evening will begin at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. Tasty desserts will be served to kick off this sweet evening! This is our Spring Fundraiser for Fall Sanctuary Choir scholarships.  An envelope will be on each table and you are invited to make a contribution while you enjoy the show!

Wesley at the University of Central Oklahoma Golf Tournament

Like to golf? The Wesley at UCO hosts over 100 students each week through a Thursday lunch, Worship, and other fellowship and Christian learning activities. In the last two years, contributions from the Oklahoma Conference (apportionments) have been cut by 50% and strong support from local United Methodist Churches is vital to the Wesley’s student ministry. Sponsorships and players are welcome! The tournament will be at the Golf Club of Edmond, 4001 Fairfax Dr, Edmond, on Saturday, April 22. If you need more information, contact our own Dr. Mary Sheets, UCO Professor and UCO Wesley Board Member!
