Sunday Mornings

Sunday morning worship is at 8:45 and 11:00 a.m. Both services are traditional style, with soloists at the 8:45 and the Chancel Choir at the 11:00 service.  Both services include a children’s sermon, after which children (age 3-3rd grade) are offered the option of an age appropriate children’s worship.  For younger children, age level nurseries are available.

Access our Sermon Archive to hear recordings of sermons at Wesley Monumental.

Sunday school is at 9:45. We currently have classes for children and youth age 3 through high school, and there are seven different adult Sunday school classes.

Sunday School Classes
*
Hybrid – a class that has some people meeting on zoom and others in person at the same time.

Alpha  (Hybrid – Fellowship Hall and Zoom)
Class members serve in many leadership roles in the church and are faithful supporters of the missions and ministries of the church. They use the Adult Bible studies series, a Bible-based, Christ-focused, UM approved curriculum. Occasionally, they use topical or video-based studies. Class members enjoy fellowship events and are faithful in their support of each other in time of illness or crisis. Contact Evonne Mobley at evonne.mobley@gmail.com for Zoom invite.

Compass  (Oliver Hall Room 408)
This class welcomes couples and individuals.  Many members have children, from toddlers to tweens.  Classes are discussion-oriented around topical studies used to strengthen faith.  Members support each other and enjoy time together in social gatherings.

Connect (Hybrid – Oliver Hall Room 207 and zoom)
Our newest adult Sunday School class, Connect, is made of people of all ages and all stations of life who enjoy being together and learning God’s Word! The members of Connect are welcoming and would love to include more people. If you have never been in Sunday School or just haven’t found one at Wesley, give Connect a try! Email Rev. Jennifer Thompson at jennifert@wesleymonumental.org if you would like a Zoom invite.

Epworth  (Zoom)
Epworth is an eclectic class: some married, some single, some grandparents, some parents and some without children. They enjoy quarterly Social Sundays and other gatherings during the year.  Their studies are as varied as their members, including scriptural and topical lessons.  A special service focus is fundraising for Urban Hope, an after-school ministry to children and youth.

Harbor Class  (currently combined with Compass)
This class is for parents of young children, although all are welcome! This class enjoys discussing and practically applying Scripture. Because all are busy people, lessons are chosen that require no advanced reading. The class enjoys participating in service projects and social gatherings with childcare included.

Ivy  (Zoom every other week)
A lively group of “empty nesters,” parents of college-age children, new grandparents, couples, and singles. They hold social events frequently. They generally use the Adult Bible Studies series, but they also engage in occasional topical studies. For a Zoom invite to Ivy Class, contact Marion Thomas at MarionThomas@BrasselerUSA.com.

Journey  (Journey)
The members of this class seek to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the Holy Word. The class is for those who like to explore diverse opinions, accept the conflict of ideas, and want to nurture their spirituality and understanding of the Bible. Contact Kathy Horne, KHorne@bouhan.com for the Zoom invite.

Pastor’s Class  (Hybrid – Oliver Hall Parlor and Zoom)
Taught by the senior pastor, this is our most diverse class, with singles and young parents to retirees. They examine Christian themes for daily living. Their location in the Fellowship Hall makes it a great class to drop in on! Contact Rev. Ben Martin at ben@wesleymonumental.org for a Zoom invite to the Pastor’s Class.

Sunday Evenings
During the summer months, we have worship and dinner at Wesley Gardens Retreat Center on Moon River. Worship in the Chapel begins at 5:30. A nursery is provided, and a separate program geared for younger children also takes place during worship. At approximately 6:15, we move over to the Big House for dinner.
