This is a benefit concert for Music@Wesley (Wesley UMC's Concert Series), and all money received in the freewill offering will go to fund future concerts at Wesley! Save the date - you won't want to miss this!
UMW PECAN SALES
Our United Methodist Women will be selling pecans in order to raise funds for local, national, and international missions, such as The Gathering Place, Adoption Share, Village of Hope, Haiti, and Magnolia Manor. There will be a variety of pecan assortments. These packages make great gifts and are wonderful for holiday cooking. We will take orders in the breezeway before and after church on September 30, October 7, and October 14 and can accept cash, check, or credit cards. One hundred percent of all money made will be given to missions. Your purchases may be picked up on November 11 and 18. Christmas decorations will also be for sale. Thank you for your support.

WITH GRATITUDE: BOB CALLAHAN
Thank you, Bob Callahan, for restaining the doors at the breezeway entrance. They look so much better! Bob is often seen around the church facility changing light bulbs, painting, or performing other maintenance work. He has also unlocked our church on Sunday mornings for the past several years. While it is evident that this is not something he does for recognition, next time you see him, please thank him for his years of dedication, as we are blessed that he gives so much of his time to care for our facility in this way!
