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.

Everybody Welcome

Outside the church was a sign that had the church name, the times of service, the name of the pastor and the message “Everybody Welcome.” I thought what a wonderful gesture to be welcome everyone. As I continued driving down the road I began to wonder if it was true. Was everyone really welcome or did they only welcome people who looked like and thought like the people who went on a regular basis? Would they welcome a child molester? Would they welcome a transgender person? Would they welcome someone with tattoos? Would they welcome the refugee from El Salvador? Would they welcome the town drunk? Was everyone really welcome?

Then I began to think about Wesley Chapel. Is everyone really welcome at Wesley Chapel? Every Sunday I say, “grace and peace to you.” Are we really willing to extend grace to all people and accept them for who they are in whatever condition they are in?

At Wesley Chapel, our hospitality extends to all people in the areas of worship, study, and service. We believe that all people are called into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We extend grace to all people on their journey of faith whether they are mature believers, new believers, or have not yet accepted Jesus as Lord. All people are invited to worship. All people are encouraged to study God’s word in order to intentionally grow in their faith, and all people are invited to serve.
 
All people are invited to the Lord’s Table to receive Holy Communion. We do not exclude people based on nationality, race, ethnicity, human sexuality, financial status, or anything else. 
 
Recently, a panel of four people helped me explore how we could practice hospitality by looking beyond the surface of a person and look at the character of Christ. Maria was born in El Salvador but has lived in the U.S. for 23 years.  Recently she ordered a banana split and was told, “We don’t serve Mexican food here.”  At Wesley Chapel she has found love and acceptance and she has helped us see the character of Christ in her. Erica expressed her love for her father, husband, and son as loving men of godly character. However, because of the color of his skin, her husband is often stopped by police in Floyd County to ask why he is driving on these roads. The answer is because he lives in Floyds Knobs. Ernesto’s parents moved to the United States from Mexico. He graduated from Floyd Central. When people ask him where he is from, they are skeptical when he claims Indiana as his home. Jalissa is black and her husband is white.  They want a church where they can be loved and accepted along with their children.
 
When we look past the color of a person’s skin, their tattoos, or their hair dye and look for the character of Christ within, then we are beginning to see people as God sees them. God sees us as God’s children. 
 
What kind of church do we want to be? My prayer for Wesley Chapel is that we would be a Christ-like church. Jesus welcomed everyone. Let us welcome everyone also.
 
Grace & Peace,
Pastor Tony

A Firm Foundation

What does the future hold for The United Methodist Church? It is the question being asked all around our denomination. What should be the response to the competing visions and notable division within contemporary Methodism in North America? Can we explore the issues confronting us in a post-Christendom era without rupturing our relationships?

This carefully curated volume engages the deep heart questions of United Methodists and casts a compelling vision by trustworthy voices for dynamic faith. Contributors explore the power of classic ideas such as:

The Lordship of Jesus Christ Engaging scripture meaningfully The power of the Holy Spirit The promise of sanctification Living with undivided purpose Fostering dynamic discipleship The gift of the global church

This resource is a useful tool not only in navigating present challenges but in pursuing the future promise for the people called Methodists. The foundational principles that have guided Methodist thought from the beginning of John Wesley’s countercultural movement remain rich resources as we explore what it means to remain faithful disciples in the tradition of the Wesleys.
