Missions

Missions Team

Wesley Church has a Missions Team that meets monthly. The Missions Team oversees spending from the missions budget. Money is given to a wide variety of the missions projects, agencies, and efforts.  Some of them are listed on this page.

 

Mission trips

The Missions Team coordinates yearly mission trips. We usually have an adult and youth group go out of the country (e.g., to Costa Rica), a youth and adult group do a mission trip in the US (e.g., Virginia, Denver, CO), and the Wesley Foundation take a mission trip (e.g., to Cuba). Please visit our Mission Trips page to learn more.

 

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.

 

Wesley Church Partners with Habitat for Humanity

The Mission Team has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to upgrade an abandoned house to make it usable, so that Habitat for Humanity can make it available to a needy family. Members of Wesley are helping with the work and repairs at the home. WGEM News Report.

Loaves and Fishes

*This information is in the process of being updated.

  • Wesley is responsible for stocking shelves in October and  January. Please contact Sandy Nelson  or Dana Walker if you can help stock shelves.

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.

Contact Dana Walker, Bonnie Barker, or the Church office if you have questions.

 

Missions of the Month

Each month Wesley Church has a mission of the month in which we raise money for one or more mission projects. Information about the mission of the month can be found in the Newsletter.

 

Sweet Corn Project

Each year, up until summer 2022, the Missions Team had a Corn For Compassion Sale.  The sweet corn sale was discontinued in 2023.  Click here for archive information.

 

Other Agencies

The Missions Team also contributes money to many other agencies around our state, country, and world. For more information, attend a Missions Team meeting.
