A Request

 

Last school year, the Wesley Wednesdays after-school program served 35 kids from our community.
Our church provided them with lessons about God and our relationship with Jesus, fun activities, snacks, and
homework help. We also surrounded them with caring adults who showed these kids the love of Jesus
through their compassionate attention and service.
The mission of Wesley Wednesdays is to strengthen and raise up these children by offering them the
love of Jesus. Kids are struggling these days and we hear stories of children breaking under the stresses of
bullying, sexting, and peer pressure. We trust that God’s love and grace are sufficient to give them the
spiritual foundation they need to thrive. We live out our faith in God by offering Wesley Wednesdays.
Wesley Wednesdays is provided free-of-charge but, of course, it does cost money. Each week of
Wesley Wednesdays costs the church at least $80 to cover the expenses of bus transport from the schools,
food, and supplies for activities. Over the course of 30 weeks through the coming school year, Wesley
Wednesdays will cost at least $2400.
I wish I could say that our church could cover that cost easily, but that wouldn’t be the truth based on
our current financial situation. And so, I write now with a request: would you or your family be willing to
sponsor just one week of offering Jesus to the children through Wesley Wednesdays with a special gift of $80?
Each special gift in support of this ministry allows us to free up funds for other ministries to the community,
expanding our impact and increasing our faithfulness as disciples of Jesus Christ.
To show you that I put my money where my heart is, I’m writing a check for $240 today to support
Wesley Wednesdays. The first three weeks are on me. Will you join me with your support?
