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.
we are family.

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.”

Worship: Where do people expect you to be on Sunday morning?

Written by Beth Webster

Luke 2: 49  “Why were you searching for me?” 12-year-old Jesus asked.  “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”

God created the world in six days, and on the seventh day He rested (Genesis 1:1-2:2). That day became the Sabbath, meaning “to rest from labor.” When God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, one of them was “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8).

As a child, I really didn’t grasp the meaning of Sabbath day, but I knew that on Sunday morning my parents and I went to church.  Mother would prepare foods in advance to fix for Sunday dinner after church, and I also remember Dad stretched out in his reclining chair pretty much the remainder of the day.  Sometimes friends or family members would come for dinner, but activities were few on that day of the week.  The return of the workweek was a much different setting, with both Mother and Dad working hard to accomplish their tasks for us as a family.

In the Bible, God calls us to regular, weekly worship so that together, we can share in thankfulness to Him through our songs, prayers, studying His word, and acts of kindness to one another.  Fortunately, my parents, and I hope many of yours, instilled that regular weekly worship to God into your routine for the week.

Back in the early days of this great country, our early relatives also set aside that day of rest. Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family spent all day Saturday getting ready for Sunday.  In her book, Little House in the Big Woods (1871, early Wisconsin), the family bathed, pressed their Sunday-best clothes, and prepared all of their meals for the next day.  On Sunday morning, they fixed their hair, donned their fresh, clean clothes and had church in their own home.  They then were quiet the rest of the day! They kept the Sabbath day holy!

Things have changed so much these days!  It happened slowly, perhaps.  American Christians seem to have all sorts of activity on Sunday. Some people work, either by choice or necessity. Some go out to eat and some worship on a different day of the week. And the list can go on and on.

To me, Sundays are a gift and a blessing.  Sunday is my favorite day of the week because I am blessed to meet with my pastor and other believers.  I’m blessed to share my musical talent most weeks in some fashion.  Now I’m even blessed by friends who gather in my Sunday school class as we study the word together.  What a wonderful time we have, sharing and discussing!

Where do people expect you to be on Sunday morning?  You have to answer that one yourself.  But for me, I expect myself to be in church, and that is where I choose to be.

Written by Sidney Poindexter

To be a witness of the Lord is to show and demonstrate to others what we have “seen” and know to be true about God. Matthew 28:19 says, “Therefore go and make disciples.” I think behind this verse is a deeper meaning – “Go and show others the love of Jesus and tell them how He forgives and shows mercy.” 


For me, I have felt the call to not only be a witness to those in my everyday life but to people around the world. When I get to serve in the Dominican Republic, I do have a bit of a language barrier. However, the Lord doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Sharing Jesus with others, especially children, brings an overwhelming amount of joy into my heart. We aren’t meant to be ashamed or embarrassed by Jesus. He is our one source of peace, joy, and love. 


Jesus is shown in us by serving and helping others through all kinds of work. In the Dominican, I have painted inside and outside homes, laid concrete, flattened land, cleaned for others, served food, and done even simple tasks, like holding open a door. Jesus put others first every day, no matter what. He was selfless during His entire life. Serving puts yourself second and others first, just as Jesus did. 


I believe everyone should have the opportunity and chance to step out of their comfort zone, leave their normal life, and be immersed in another culture for a short time. Being a missionary and a servant of God has opened up my eyes and humbled me greatly. If you would have told me 5 years ago this is where I would be in life, I think I would have laughed. I’m so grateful to be the Lord’s witness. 


You can be a witness without going to another country, too. Jesus meets us where we are and gives us opportunities to share and serve daily. Maybe it’s holding open the door for someone. Perhaps you see someone struggling with groceries and you offer to help. Paying for the person’s food behind you in the drive-through. Unspoken acts of kindness. That is how we serve. Be like Jesus, and serve without selfishness. 


How can my actions benefit another person? How can I be like Jesus today? How can I be a witness? The answer is simple:  serve.

The Need of Restoration

Written by Becky Perkins

Following the resurrection of Jesus, Jesus appeared to his disciples several times.  The third time Jesus appeared to his disciples, it was early in the morning.  Some of his disciples were fishing in the Sea of Galilee.  Peter was among the fishermen.  When Jesus called them to the shore, Jesus had prepared a breakfast for them.  The disciples did not question who Jesus was, because they had seen him several times since the resurrection.  When Jesus broke the bread and spoke to them, they knew exactly who He was. 


Peter had denied Jesus three times before Jesus’ arrest.  Now after this breakfast, Jesus offered Peter three questions.  “Do you love me more than these?” “Do you love me?” and again, “Do you love me?”  Peter answered with a definite “yes” each time.  Jesus then told Peter to “feed my lambs,” “tend my sheep,” and “feed my sheep.”  It is possible that Jesus was offering Peter restoration for his denial and for his pride of thinking he loved Jesus more than the other disciples.  Peter boasted in John 13:37 that he would lay down his life for Jesus.  In Matthew 26:33, Peter boasted that all other men would stumble because of Jesus, but Peter would never be made to stumble.  Peter was humbled after he denied Jesus three times. His heart had changed.   


In John 21, Jesus fed the disciples and tended to their physical needs.  Then Jesus went to work on their spiritual needs.  Jesus offered Peter restoration.  Peter sought forgiveness and repented for denying Jesus.  Jesus told Peter that he would not only be fishing for men in his future, but Peter would also be a shepherd of his people.  After Jesus restored Peter, He called him into a place of leadership, a position to shepherd people.  I guess you could say that Peter progressed on the Discipleship Pathway; he no longer was a believer following Jesus, but was now in position to lead.


Leading a group of people is hard work, it is a submissive work, and it is a humbling work.  Jesus must humble us to prepare us to lead.  I have personally experienced a humbling of my spirit through ministry.  When I become weary, tired, and have wrong thoughts toward others, it’s because I am trying to do the work within myself.  When I get angry with people, when things do not go the way I expect them to go, when God is not on my time frame, I know I am trying to do the work within myself.  Sometimes, God has to humble me and let me know that I am not the one in charge.  During those times, I have to stop and listen to His voice.  Sometimes, I have to let Him restore my soul before He can do the work through me.


The times of discipline that God puts me through are not fun, not easy, and can be heartbreaking.  When God convicts my spirit, I am weary and drained.  But there is always a restoration time after the hard times.  God does not convict us to punish to us, but to love us. Those times when God works on our hearts, whether dealing with jealousy, greed, unforgiveness, lust, covetousness, or other things down deep in our hearts, He is doing it out of His love for us.  God wants the best for us in His timing and in His way.  God shows us a beautiful restoration time.  Restoration may be just the awareness of His presence, the beauty of His world, or the beauty we find in scripture.  It is a cleansing of the soul and a peace that passes all understanding.  How does He do it?  I don’t know, but we can know, with confidence, that He was the One who performed the restoration.  It is after the restoration that we, as Peter, know the joy of God’s salvation.


“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  Do not cast me from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.  Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit” (Psalm 51:10-12).
