Men's Bible Study
Rev. Curtis DeVance is extremely interested and eager to bring the men associated with John Wesley (members and non-members) together by starting a Men's Only Bible Study, but he needs your help to design a study that will be of interest to all of you. An e-mail was sent out to the men of John Wesley for whom we may have addresses, so you only need to complete this survey once. As of today, only THREE MEN have responded! PLEASE take a couple of minutes and complete the following survey by tomorrow, November 20th and he will reach out to all men after receiving the results.
Friends and women of John Wesley if you know of men, especially those who do not have e-mail or may not received the JW-Connection please reach out to them to get their responses as well. Please click on the link below or copy and paste in your server:

Advent Wreath Making and Packets: Advent begins on next Sunday, November 29. On this first Sunday of Advent we will begin lighting our advent candles. Advent wreath packets have been assembled for each household of John Wesley so that we can light our own advent candles in our homes every Sunday morning during advent as we worship together. On Sunday, November 22 we will have an Advent Wreath Making demonstration after worship service.
Along with each Advent Wreath Packet will be a “25 Days of Advent: A Family Prayer Guide.” We are inviting each family to join us starting December 1, to read the scripture, short meditation and prayer every day until December 25, Christmas Day. We can connect with one another as we stay connected to God as we celebrate God’s perfect gift to us.
Advent Wreath Packets can be picked up at the church this afternoon and/or Saturday when you pick up your communion elements for December and January.
*Please send a picture of your finished wreath to the church e-mail at email@example.com.
THANK GOD – THANKSGIVING OFFERING
November is the season of Thanksgiving. As we look back over these past eight months of living in and through this coronavirus pandemic, we have a whole lot to be Thankful for. Our giving to the church is way down. We may not be in the church building, but we are still the church! I am asking everyone to give a “Thank God” Thanksgiving special offering during this month of November. During this season of Thanksgiving, I am asking every person connected to John Wesley, member, regular attendee or friend; Not every household, But every person to give a $100 or more, Thank God offering. But at least $100. A Thank God offering that is above and beyond your regular tithe and offering. I'm asking every person to give as the spirit leads you. And if you can give more than $100, please do so. Thank God… Just because. Please give your Thank God offering before or by Sunday, November 29th. God has been so good to us. Let us, Thank God.
