Our Wesley Women’s retreat this year was a huge success! Our theme this year was Called by Name! We used Isaiah 40:26-31 and 43:1-4 to focus on God’s ability to repair the broken, provide strength to the weak, know us at our core, always love us, and call us by name. Rev. Valerie Steele and Rev. Dr. Tiffany Nagel Monroe delivered amazing sermons for us. We had a service project where we created “Welcome Home” baskets for Wings of Hope Graduates, completed an art project, participated in embodied prayer and sabbath. Thank you so much to everyone who came and for this amazing community! We are already so excited for next year!
The Wesley Foundation focuses on the impact women have when they gather in community together to worship God and grow in faith. Women are challenged with forming our identities in a world that often provides one-dimensional scripts for what womanhood looks like. We believe women are created in the image of God, and we intend for the Wesley Women’s Ministry to assist women in discovering this truth and applying it’s meaning to their lives.
Each Tuesday at 7pm, women are invited to gather on the 2nd floor of The Wesley for a time of connection with other women and connection with God. We will do devos, crafts, game nights, and sometimes we even go out for dinner or ice cream! This isn’t something that you have to go to every week. There’s no overarching lesson plan for any of the nights; it’s designed for people to be able to jump in some weeks and jump out others. We hope to see you there!
