Welcome home to Wesley.

Ours is a loving Christian community, comfortably rooted in tradition,
with a joyful, informal approach to worship.

We are the first African-American Methodist congregation in Columbia’s history, dating back 150 years.
Today, we embrace diversity as we look eagerly and optimistically to the future.
Join us as we live, breathe, and celebrate the Gospel.
