WHO WE ARE
Wesley United Methodist Church was founded on March 4, 1865 by newly freed slaves ("Freedmen") following the passage of President Lincoln's life-changing "Emancipation Proclamation" in 1863. Construction of a new church began in the Spring of 1882, and our current sanctuary was built in 1929. In 1985 the National Register of Historic Places recognized Wesley as a National Site.
We offer traditional worship with contemporary elements, so while our service is reverential the energy in the room is totally unleashed. Aretha would feel at home here, and so will you. The jumpin' band and choir often elicit spontaneous shouts of praise which are most certainly encouraged!
Join us live and in person, every Sunday at 10am as we make a joyful noise to The Lord with Scripture and Song. <more>
