Missions and Service
Wesley participates in local, national, and international missions with enthusiasm! The schedule for AY 2016-2017 will be announced in September. Our major missions and service project will be conducted during the winter break. Last year we made a Civil Rights and Faith trip. On that trip, we not only did meaningful service work with Urban Ministries in their urban garden and home painting ministries, we also volunteered with Highlands UMC’s ministry with persons who are homeless, and also at the food co-op at Woodlawn UMC. We also visited the Civil Rights Museum and Institute and 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, and the Martin Luther King National Monument and Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Furthermore, we discussed with veterans of the Civil Rights movement and persons who are continuing the work today about how their faith continues to empower them.
