Someone has said that 60 is the new 40. As the Baby Boomer bubble enters the senior years, the church is presented with a new challenge and opportunity. This demographic is not ready to be consigned to a passive status in which they become observers of ministry. At heart, they are life seasoned mentors and coaches. As they relinquish busy, career-driven lives, the New Senior searches for meaning and an opportunity to invest their lives in an appropriate and productive way.
At Wesley Community, our desire is to minister to and with this savvy group. They have stories to tell, experience to share and our hope is to capture every nugget that we can from this exceptional group as they continue to set the bar.
The church gets big in a small way when a congregation commits itself to growth in groups. It is impossible for a Sunday morning service to accomplish the kinds of things that are innate when people gather, face to face for mutual ministry. Proverbs 27:17 (NLT) says,
“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” Proverbs 27:17
Our agenda at Wesley Community is to make disciples rather than church consumers. This, in fact, is the Great Commission, to go into all the world and “make disciples”.
To enter into a relationship with Christ is only the beginning of a lifetime of discipleship in which Jesus is Lord overall. Small groups are our intentional strategy to pursue this great mandate, modeled to us by Christ Himself.
Please check here for the current list of small groups being offered.
The book of Judges cracks a window into the depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise, who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver.
In this series, pastor and author J.D. Greear wades into the book of Judges to shine a light onto the muddy waters of human rebellion, the truth of God’s grace in the midst of it, and the book’s relevance for us today.
Tuesday, December 01, 7 pm Come study The Book of Judges with J.D. Greear in Wesley Hall. Led by Dave Yuke.

Postponed until further notice due to COVID. Attending children will be given a sanitized ‘Busy Pack’ when they arrive on Sundays. Bruce Nienkirchen will lead a special ‘Children’s Moment’ at the beginning of each service. Children will be sitting with their families during the service.
Children’s Church meets weekly during our Sunday Morning service time.
We recognize that our children are likely the most digitally entertained and instructed generation that we have ever known. It is extremely difficult for any organization to compete with the options that they have at their fingertips 24/7. Still, it is our conviction that they need relationships with each other and with adults who care for them at every level. Wesley Community is committed to offering those relationships and the investment of time and attention in our children. You may be interested in more than a program for your kids. Perhaps you are stirred to make a contribution of time, energy, and effort as an investment in the lives of these children.
Most every notable revival has had two common elements. It has involved youth and it has begun in small groups. Our youth are possibly the most faith-filled, adventure-ready group that the church ministers to. We remember the days when life seemed so large and the possibilities were endless. Youth have always been at the cusp when God begins to move.
We don’t see them as the church of tomorrow at Wesley Community – they are the church today. In many ways, they are the pulse of the church at large. Pray for our teens and help us spread the word as we enlarge our ministry borders to this most critical group of people.
YOUTH NIGHT- Friday, December 4, 6:30 pm at WCC.
