Starting Points?

When you need encouragement and refreshment for your soul, turn to these Scriptures and topics.

Your Personal Spiritual Gifts?

While all of life is a gift from God, these twenty gifts are lifted up within Scripture as the gifts of the Spirit, given specifically for the upbuilding of the body of Christ.

Discipleship?

Discipleship involves a ministry of outreaching love and witness to others concerning Christ and God’s grace.
Communion

The United Methodist Church recognizes two sacraments – baptism and communion.  These two acts have a special place in the church because Jesus commanded them and participated in them.

Baptism marks the beginning of our lifelong journey as disciples of Jesus Christ.  Communion nourishes and sustains us on the journey.

Communion

Holy Communion recalls the last supper Jesus had with his disciples. But it is more than just a ritual of remembering.  It is primarily an act through which our connection with God, each other and our life of ministry in the world is nourished and strengthened.

Wesley Church of Hope invites you to partake in Communion on the first Sunday of every month. 

In communion, we do remember the saving work God has already done in the world and is doing today. And we anticipate God’s future for the world and all creation. We’re partners with God in creating this future. We are strengthened and transformed by the presence of Christ in the bread and wine to respond to God’s love by loving God and others.
