We will accomplish that by "Worship - Work - Walk".
Worship God with heart, soul & mind.
Work to know God with knowledge, discipleship & love.
Walk with God through ministry, mission & outreach.


"It is our hope that you will find the spirit of our congregation to be warm, friendly and actively seeking to love and serve our Lord Jesus and our fellow travelers on the road of life! You have found a church that is committed to worshiping, working and walking to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to our community, state, nation and world!"

-Pastor Tom Vansant




Our Vision and Values

These are the values that are shared by all United Methodists:

United Methodists are people with open hearts.  John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, invited people into his movement that other churches didn't want.  United Methodists are people with warmed hearts.  John Wesley felt his heart strangely warmed by the love of Jesus Christ.  United Methodist are people with holy hearts.  John Wesley taught holiness of heart and life - faith that is expressed in a life of service.

These are the values defining the unique identity of Wesley United Methodist Church:
We value informality.  You don't have to dress up or pretend to be someone else to fit in here. All are welcome!
We value worship.  Worship is the central experience which challenges us to live as disciples, both individually and as a community of faith.
We value participation.  Everyone is given the opportunity to be a part of the ministry of Wesley UMC.
We value YOU!

We believe that the Holy Spirit leads each person on a unique journey of faith.
