Wesley on the Move: February 11-18

This Sunday:   This Sunday, we will conclude our sermon series, “How Will You Measure Your Life” which invites you to consider these questions:  How do you currently measure your life?  How should you measure your life?  And, how will God measure your life in the end?

Children and Youth Fundraiser Lunch:  Also this Sunday, Wesley’s children and youth will prepare a delicious community lunch.  There is no cost for this meal but your generous donations are greatly appreciated. All donations will be used to support summer camp and activities for Wesley children and youth.

Ash Wednesday Come and Go Prayer Event.  Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, is next Wednesday, February 14th.  To enable as many folks as possible to participate, Wesley is hosting a come and go Ash Wednesday Prayer event.  From Noon-7:00 PM, come to the Sanctuary and move through four discrete prayer stations. Spend as long as you want – 15 minutes or an hour. The stations are family friendly!  Please share with your Christian neighbors who maybe looking for an Ash Wednesday event they can attend!
