Some people have asked what a Wesleyan is. You can go to our link below, OR you can see the simplified version here:
A Wesleyan is someone whom has been MADE NEW in Christ and endeavors to live a life that reflects this change. The Old has gone and the New has come (2 Corinthians 5:17). In our endeavors of discovering what this NEW life entails, AKA "Holiness," we find that God's way is the best way. As humans, however, we are constantly battling against our old human nature. If we truly accept that we are Made New, we need to cast off the old ways and embrace the New ways of God. Let us not pretend that this is easy or instantaneous. Our struggle is not against people, but against spiritual forces we weren't even aware existed before being Made New (Ephesians 6:12). Sometimes this appears to come in the form of opposition through people, so we are often distracted from our New self and return to old methods of dealing with people. Even great Heroes of the Faith have struggled with this. So take comfort that you are not alone in the restorative work of grace in your life. If you falter you should not give up, but follow the example of our spiritual predecessors and rise up and claim the promises of God.
Are you MADE NEW?
Are you seeking to live a life that reflects your change (a life of "Holiness")?
"Hearing" the Word of God is not something that "just happens" or comes “easy” for most people. We have come to a point where many of us are acutely aware of what is said all around us by the competing sources and influences. Sometimes we have also become indifferent to taking time to be still and know that He is God. Let us endeavor to seek out God and what He has to say. May we fill our lives with sources that point to God and not with things that distract us. Let us celebrate our birth and our spiritual renewal, but praise God for now and what is to come.
A Theme that has developed this year is: knowing and doing the commands of Jesus. Each week we will be looking at one or more of these commands found in the Bible and seeing how we can learn it and apply it. You are invited to join us on Sundays, and allow the Spirit to move you throughout the week.
Hope we can see you sometime soon.
Our service times are now at 10:30 AM on Sundays.
May this be our heartfelt prayer:
Lord, thank You that You are willing and able to forgive me and help me change my ways if they do not please You.

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith. A psalm of David.
Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.
Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint;
heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.
My soul is in deep anguish.
How long, Lord, how long?
Turn, Lord, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
Among the dead no one proclaims your name.
Who praises you from the grave?
I am worn out from my groaning.
All night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my foes.
Away from me, all you who do evil,
for the Lord has heard my weeping.
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy;
the Lord accepts my prayer.
All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish;
they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.
