Loaves and Fishes

Wesley Church is one of 12 churches that supports Loaves and Fishes, which provides food and emergency assistance to people in need. Depending on funding, services may include overnight lodging, medical transportation expenses, personal-care needs, and financial assistance for paying medical, pharmaceutical, rent and utility bills.

Volunteers are needed year round (to do things such as stock shelves and help clients). During the months of October and January, Wesley Church has primary responsibility at Loaves and Fishes, so more volunteers are needed during these months.  Training is available for people who would like to help.

 

Mission trips

The Missions Team coordinates yearly mission trips, usually in early January, spring break, or the summer. Recent trips have supported people in Costa Rica, Denver, and Cuba.

 

Streaming Waters Work Week (SWWW)

Each summer, dozens of church members and friends set aside one week to help people in our community. Jobs have included yard work, repairing gutters, building ramps, painting, fixing decks, and repairing fences. A meal crew provides lunches, snacks and plenty of water. The church donates the labor and materials. Click here for more information.

 

Christian Caring Ministry

Short-term help is provided to those in need. This may include a phone call, sending a card, providing a meal or making a visit.

 

Sweet Corn Project

Each year, the Missions Team has a Corn For Compassion Sale.  Sweet corn grown on two acres of farmland owned by the church is sold by the “Methodist dozen” – 13 ears!  Proceeds, which average $2,500, are disbursed by the team for missions.  Click here for more information.
