In addition to choirs, Sunday school classes, Bible studies, Wednesday night supper, mission trips and other special events; here are some ways that adults can connect at Wesley Monumental. Another great way to get involved is to volunteer! Through children’s programs and mission, there are lots of volunteer opportunities at Wesley Monumental throughout the year. We encourage adults of all ages to take advantage of these opportunities to continue to grow in their love and knowledge of God’s people and God’s ways.
We also encourage adults to take an interest in the church through holding a leadership position. There are many ways to support the church, from the Administrative Board to the Wedding Committee: Leadership Team 2020
The purpose of United Methodist Women (UMW) is “to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.” Our UMW has five circles (small groups) which meet at the following times:

This fun-loving group meets one Thursday a month for dinner at the church and an inspirational program. The United Methodist Men are involved in hands-on mission projects, including sending work teams to assist with disaster recovery and building low-income housing here in Savannah. They are also engaged in repair and renovation projects within the congregation as the need arises.
Led by Rev. Jennifer Thompson, the Merry Makers – our Senior Adult group – is always up to something interesting. Whether it’s playing games at Wesley Gardens Retreat Center on Moon River or taking a trip to Saint Simon’s Island, fun times and friendships are sure to ensue! Contact Jennifer Thompson for more information.
We had a special guest at our January 2020 Merry Makers – Marilyn Athey, a Personal Affairs Manager who shared her wisdom and lead us through the tool “Five Wishes.” Advanced Planning is important – and it can even be enjoyable – when we are able to make preemptive decisions based on our own individual desires for the future.
