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 3-4th 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

Alpha  (Education Building Room 205)
The The Alpha Class is a combination of the longest-running Fellowship Class and the mostly-retired Alpha Class. Class members serve in many leadership roles in the church and are faithful supporters of the missions and ministries of the church. They use 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.

Compass  (Oliver Hall)
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.

Epworth  (Oliver Hall Room 309)
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  (Oliver Hall Room 407)
This class is for parents of young children, though all persons are welcome.  Lessons are based on the Revised Common Lectionary (Scripture readings chosen for Sundays following a Gospel or seasons of the church year).  No advanced reading is required.  The class often enjoys participating in service projects and social gatherings with childcare included.

Ivy  (Oliver Hall Room 310)
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.

Journey  (Oliver Hall Room 308)

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.  The class topics have included “Doubt As It    Affects Faith,” current controversial issues, and “Why Bad Things Happen to Good People,” with other interesting topics planned.

Pastor’s Class  (Fellowship Hall)
Taught by the senior pastor, this is our most diverse class, from 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!

 

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.
