We are a church family rooted in Christ and growing in grace.

At Wesley Chapel, it is our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We do this by focusing on four areas: Worship, Faith Development, Serving, and Generosity. We live together as people of faith to grow as disciples in each of these four areas.

Our Mission

Serve the Church

When we serve we are being like Jesus. Jesus calls us to serve within our faith community so that we can grow in our faith and be equipped to go into the world to share the love of God with all people. The primary areas of Serve Here are Hospitality and Food Service. Serving at Wesley Chapel also includes other ministry areas such as Worship, Faith Development, and Facility Team just to name a few. There are always opportunities to serve and we would love to have you connected to Wesley Chapel through service.

 
 
 

Serve the City

We believe serving those around us is central to growing in our relationship with God. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we serve our local communities in Southern Indiana.
 
 

Serve the World

We are a church on mission to go into the world and share the hope of Jesus. Through local and global ministry partnerships, we are working diligently to be the hands and feet of God.

Cue the Eagle

“Run to the roar means facing my pain and fears and trusting God to help me with those fears. As a part of that, I wanted to deepen my relationship with God, and in return He provided me with strength. I ask God for strength many days and he gives it to me along with hope of eternal life.”

Three Generations Impacted

“In my early 20’s I was going through rough times. I was trying to figure out what to do to better myself and get back on track to get out of the rut I was in. I asked my mother if she would be interested in trying out Wesley Chapel, and we went that next Sunday and the rest is history. We fell in love with the church from that point on. I loved the church, and the feeling of family was important to us. We got that feeling from the beginning.”

A Church to Call Home

“We felt very loved, there was a lot of grace, not judgement. Our lives at that time were a real mess. I wouldn’t wish any family to go through that, but we went through it. And what we found as we had that journey, and we would share that journey, the more and more love we got. It almost intensified and helped us through that time. Peoples lives are messy, and if you don’t have a mess, just wait because there will be one.

The Life of the Wesley Chapel Guatemalan Missionaries During COVID19-Part 3

Written by Pam English

In USA

 

“ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” Jeremiah 29:11-12

 

Very known verse! Very new meaning these days. Maybe you are tired of hearing these words these days. DON’T BE. Love them. Embrace them. Believe them. Trust them.

 

Before Covid-19 Steve and I already had plans to come to the US in May for a short visit. We did postpone those plans a bit and then had a canceled flight but finally arriving to the US on May 26 expecting to return to Guatemala mid-June, which was not the case. Those who know us, know we are different missionaries who have not come to the States repetitively. In fact, the longest span of time was 22 days in 2019. As I write this, we are quickly approaching 100 days. (And note: we came with one carry on each and five days of clothes and doing just fine!!)

 

However, we were in for a surprise to not return. Everything is good, however. There have been inexplicable times of ministry in the US with people here as we continue to minister via WhatsApp, Facetime, FaceBook Live, and Zoom every single day to Guatemala!!!! Things have not stopped in our lives, especially with the capability and availability of ministering to and with people that would not have been if we were not here.

 

Normal things stopped in our lives like our largest yearly fundraiser, classes, and “normal” life. But super things have developed like an unexpected match grant, ministry to lost here and a “new normal life.” We cling to Hebrews 13:5 “…be content with such things as you have. For He has said, ‘I will never leave you, nor forsake you.’”

The Life of the Wesley Chapel Guatemalan Missionaries During GOVID19 – Part 2

Written by Pam English

In Guatemala

 

Times were extremely tough in Guatemala as restrictions were unbelievably enforced overnight. Curfews from 4:00 pm through 4:00 am were enforced.  In additions there was a curfew from Friday 2:00 pm through Monday 4:00 am. Said curfews were not suggestions but orders to not leave your house.  All people over the age of 60 were prohibited to leave their residences. Leaving in these conditions could result in fines starting at US$20,000 or extensive jail times. Masks were not optional, even riding in a vehicle alone or walking alone on a street. As a person would leave his or her house, he or she had to wear a mask at all times in all places.  The three airports were closed, which meant nobody could get in the country and nobody could get out of the country. Of course, churches, schools, and restaurants were closed. Grocery stores were allowed to remain open for minimal hours.  

 

On a personal note, we actually had an airline ticket to come to the US on a repatriation flight. On the other hand, as we were switching our light off to sleep, the cell phone beeped with an announcement from United saying that our 7:00 am flight was canceled.

 

One other vital means was closed: public transportation. The majority of Guatemalans use “chicken buses” to get from point A to point B daily.   Since public transportation was halted, essential jobs were as well. “Common” people could not get to jobs, doctors, etc.   Therefore, hunger and violence increased.  Very disheartening and concerning. Even private vehicles could only get out every other day and one could not drive between counties. 

 

We are in belief that God is in total control through it all. Isaiah 41: 10, “I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  And Proverbs 16:9 encourages, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” As we cannot/could not fathom why overnight the country was put under strict restrictions, God remains in control.

The life of the Wesley Chapel Guatemalan Missionaries During COVID19-Part 1

Written by Pam English, Missionary in Guatemala

At La Senda

 

March 13 put a super change and stop on everything in Colegio Metodista La Senda, Sumpango, Sacatépequez, Guatemala.   The first case of Covid-19 was diagnosed in the country.  With this the ripple effect began:  churches closed; schools closed; masks were suggested; public transportation was stopped; restaurants were closed; curfews began; faces masks were enforced; etc.

 

La Senda currently is a school to 200 students and a boarding house to 9 boys and 4 adult children who grew up there.  But with Covid things dramatically changed as no longer daily classes could be taught, devotions could not be given, and rooms and food could not be provided to the boarders. Initially it was believed that this would not last but a few weeks.  As it was evident that longevity was unavoidable, adjustments were made.   Buying internet happened for the students who live in rural areas and/or dirt floors.  Teachers learned how to use and perform zoom and the like classes.  Books were sent home. Computers were rapped up.  Pews and desks remained empty.  The walls and halls became quiet and lonely. 

 

At La Senda, Steve and I began advising and instructing our staff in how to move forward and not to give up.  We tried to teach parents to not live in fear but in calmness.  The country was in deep, frantic fear of the unknown.    

 

Ultimately, we initiated a continuation of the daily chapels and individual counseling sessions by grades.  I continued to lead teachers in staff meetings, classroom planning and scheduling and classroom online observations.   But overall, we tried to bring the Word of God and spread words of peace to each student and staff in this time of uneasiness.    II Thessalonians 3:16 became our shared and targeted verse to strugglers, “ .. May the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.”

Forgotten God: Reversing our tragic neglect of the Holy Spirit. 

A follow up to the profound message of Crazy Love, Pastor Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives.
 
In the name of the Father, the Son, and … the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today’s church has admired the gift but neglected to open it.
 
Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church’s power—the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form Chan’s invitation to stop and remember the One we’ve forgotten, the Spirit of the living God.
