Wesley worship, fellowship continue through pandemic
COVID-19 has changed every aspect of our lives, including our church life. But at Wesley, it hasn’t slowed us down! We still have a lot going on.
Worship Service. First, we still have our main worship service every Sunday morning – except that our services are on video rather than in our sanctuary. They show up on our YouTube page every Sunday, and everyone receives a link via email. The services feature all the usual elements – music, prayer and a sermon from Rev. Tiffany, recorded in her office. (And don’t worry: When you see a choir singing without masks on, or a sermon from the sanctuary, that was recorded before the pandemic. Sort of our greatest hits. Everything else is new.)
Also, watch for this: We had a live virtual worship service to celebrate Homecoming 2020 on Sept. 27, and it was wonderful to see each other. Check out the video. We plan to do such live services twice a month in November and December, via Zoom.
Here are the details for November:
We will worship at 9 a.m. live via ZOOM on Sunday November 1, 2020, and Sunday, Nov. 22.
