“Church Shoppers” are most welcome! It makes sense to find a congregation in which
you “feel comfortable.” The members of Wesley Memorial hope that you

your faith in this caring community. Please pray for
guidance in looking for your church home.
People First - The most common thing Pastor Sipes
hears from person who are just beginning to come to church is they
want to get to know our preacher and others in the church family. Our
pastor and church members will go out of there way to meet and greet
you. This is an advantage of a small congregation. There is no
insignificant member of God's Church Family. Please give us an
opportunity to love and care for you.
How can persons become Members? By Confession of Faith—this process marks the initial entrance into
membership in the Church, when one confesses faith in Jesus Christ as
Lord and Savior. By Reaffirmation of Faith—renewing our confession

I don't know anyone! We want to get know you! We
believe church is a place of fellowship and friendship. Don't

recognized. Our folks will be talking before the service and after the
morning service. Almost a guarantee - someone will speak to you. We want
you to know us and vice versa. Please sign a visitors' sheet that
is placed in bulletin.
What Should I wear? We know you might be worried about wearing the right
thing when you come to church; we invite you to come as you are.
