What is a Wesleyan?
We are a
part of The Wesleyan Church, an evangelical,
Protestant denomination. We offer the good news
that faith in Jesus Christ makes possible a
wonderful personal relationship with God, a holy
life empowered by His Spirit for witness and
service, and assurance of eternal life in
heaven. Our name is in honor of John Wesley,
the founder of Methodism, whose emphasis on a
life of faith, self-discipline, and perfect love
is our example. For more information on The
Wesleyan Church, check out

What is your worship service like?
morning service lasts approximately 60-75 minutes,
and consist of an acoustic blend of modern and
timeless worship songs, prayer, a
Scripture-based message, and often a drama or
video presentation. We utilize video
technologies in many parts of the service. Our purpose is not to “put
on a show” but to help lead people into the
presence of Christ. For more information

do you offer Communion (the Lord's Supper)?
Sunday in our morning worship service (and
other special days such as Good Friday services)
we partake in the sacrament of Communion (also
known by other Christians as the Lord's Supper,
Eucharist). Participants stay in their
seats as the bread and juice are passed on by.
(If you feel uncomfortable taking communion, you
do not have to participate--just pass the
plates down.) People need only to
have a personal relationship with Jesus and do
not need to be members of New Life.
