Disciple Bible study

Beginning in September, Pastor Brad is planning on leading 2 sessions of Disciple 1 Bible Study. Disciple 1 has been offered here at Wesley United Methodist Church before, but whether you have taken it before or not we welcome you to join the journey through the Bible with Pastor Brad. Using both material produced by Disciple as well as material from other sources, we will survey the Bible and grow in our Christian faith and life. This will be a 24 week journey (September through April) with 90 minute sessions.

We hope to offer two different classes this year. One class will be held Wednesday Nights 5:30PM - 7:00PM as a part of our Wednesday night ministry that begins with community dinner at 5PM. The other session will be offered on Thursday mornings 9:00AM -10:30AM. Childcare will be arranged if you need it. If you have questions or would like to sign up for one of the classes, please contact Pastor Brad (bshumaker@charlestonwesley.org or 217-649-0339). We really need a minimum of 10 people in each class to make the class work! Let’s journey together!

Young Adult Small Group

A new small group will be starting at Wesley for Young Adults ages 20-30. They would like to start meeting Wednesday Nights. Contact Sarah Bergin for any questions or if you are interested in joining. The church will also provide dinner weekly from 5:00 to 6:00pm. If you would like, you can also join them for dinner before small group.

Men's Tuesday Study Group

Meets at 7:30am on Tuesdays in the Wesley UMC Library led by Lowell Gillespie. Please contact the church here for more information on how to join this group.

Women's Bible Study

The Wednesday morning Women’s Study Group will resume meeting on Wednesday, April 5, 2023 at 8:00 a.m. in the Parlor.   Our first session will be more of a social hour as we catch up on things since our last session in November.  On April 12 and 19, we will finish our study of 7 Women and the Secret of Their Greatness.  On April 26 we will begin a new book by Bob Goff, Everybody Always.  This book will take you on a journey into the secret of living without fear, constraints, or worry.  The path toward the liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do:  love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits.  If you would like to participate in this group, please let Irene Strole know by April 1, 2023.  The cost of the Bob Goff book is $5.00.
