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

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.

Faith and Thankfulness

Written by Nancy Predmore

I wasn’t always a positive person. I was more the glass is half empty rather than half full.  Looking back, those times when the glass was half empty, my faith was half empty as well. I always believed in God, that was never a question, but I rarely read my Bible, even more rarely attended church, and offered half-hearted prayers when I needed something. I was not a good example of anything at this point, and I certainly wasn’t making disciples or even being Christ-like in any aspect of my life.
 
But then something happened. God started answering those half-hearted prayers. I was struggling with infertility in my late 30s. The doctors told me that I would need medical intervention to become pregnant, which wasn’t in our budget at all. And then I became pregnant. The doctor called that pregnancy a miracle…and then I miscarried. A friend sent me scriptures to read. I looked them up and I read. For the first time in a long time, I started to actually read my Bible and listen to God instead of telling Him my plans. I got pregnant again, and I had an easy pregnancy and had a true miracle baby. I started to think that maybe my glass was half full.
 
After we had Delainey, I thought that life would be great. My faith was stronger, but the Bible and prayer were not part of my life again. Then, we had a crisis in our marriage. We almost didn’t make it through that intact. God had other plans, way better than anything I could have imagined. He heard my cries…even though I hadn’t been faithful in doing the work to become more like Him once again. We did the work to strengthen our marriage. We found a church. I started to live my faith in a real way. I read the Bible, I prayed…really started talking with God, I served at our church. I was feeling pretty good about life. The glass was starting to look half full again.
 
Then Jim got transferred to southern Indiana…a small town. I didn’t want to go. I fought. I fought Jim, I fought God. I cried…raged really. I went to a dark place. But this time, I kept reading my Bible. I kept praying. We found a church to become involved with eventually. God kept putting people in my life who had faith. Those people were showing me God’s love in so many ways. Slowly, I came out of that dark place. My faith that had been so small was growing. I went on an Emmaus Walk and my faith bloomed. God knew what I needed (He always did), and I was finally ready to listen.
 

We have had several other challenges since then, but because I finally started to listen to God, I have been in better equipped to face them. I have even learned to be thankful in the struggles because I know that God has a plan. Now, when the challenges start coming, I look at them differently. I pray through them. I ask others to pray with and for me. I read scripture.  My faith is allowing me to finally be thankful in all things, not just the things that I want to happen.  Because of my faith in God, I am able to see the glass as half full!

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Intangibly Tangible Faith

Written by Kaylan Caufield

John 20:24-29

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” 28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

I’ve always had the notion that, as a twin, people always look at us and immediately compare us to one another. Whether it be to figure out who is who or to differentiate us in some way, Raegan and I are always being used as a baseline for the other. As of late, it’s been “Are you the married one?” or “Do you have the ring?…nope, so you’re Kaylan”. In those instances, Satan attempts to capitalize and magnify the feelings of loneliness and singleness that I am often reminded of outside of those interactions.

Before this summer, I was in a dark place spiritually. Recently graduated and having left my job of 3 years, I was lost. I wasn’t in the Word every day and I wasn’t living a life that honored God. I, like Thomas, was extremely doubtful. I was also heavily focused on worldly things – money, status, image – you name it and it was probably at the forefront of my mind. And here I was about to leave for a summer to work at a camp where I was supposed to help lead others to Jesus. How in the heck was I supposed to do that when I couldn’t even take time for Him on my own?

Those who know me best know I do not have the spiritual gift of discernment. I can hardly tell left from right most days and in order for me to understand some things I practically need a neon LED sign showing me the way. When it comes to Jesus, I pretty much need the same thing. However, He doesn’t exactly work that way. Or so I thought. After coming home from camp, I took a step back to process the events of the summer and to figure out the looming question of, “Where do I go from here”? It was in that moment where my unbelief – my doubt in how mighty and great God is – became faith. Just as Thomas declared, “My Lord and my God!” (v. 28) after seeing the wounds upon Jesus’ hands, so, too, did I stand in complete awe at the beauty of what I experienced during my time at camp. It was an intangible yet tangible moment of how the Lord worked through me during the summer to not only help change the lives of others, but to change my own life, too.

We don’t have Jesus physically in front of us to prove who He is or to show us the roadmap of our lives (granted, the disciples didn’t have their roadmaps, either). Yet, we have divine moments in our lives where we can’t deny that Jesus is who He says He is. We also have small moments that accomplish the same if we only slow down enough to observe them. I am not the same girl I was before I left for camp and I won’t be that person again. Since coming home, I make it a point to be in the Word every day and take a moment to be grateful for what God is doing in my life (big or small). At times, I also try to discern what His purpose is for me (still working on that last one, but who isn’t?). By keeping Jesus first, my faith has gotten stronger and I find myself looking for the peace only He can provide, not what I thought the world could.

A friend I worked camp with told me afterwards, “I’m so proud of you for doing this”. When I asked her why she said, “Because you got to be Kaylan. You got to be your own person and stand on your own. You weren’t tied to anyone or anything”. And she’s right. I wasn’t “Kaylan, so & so’s *insert the connection*”. I wasn’t identified by the ring (or lack thereof) on my hand or by the person I know. Do not get me wrong; I love Raegan and I love being a twin with everything in me. But, I struggle with identity just as much as the next person, especially since I have someone who looks just like me walking the same halls I do. This summer showed me that I am my own person, regardless of those things. It also showed me how wildly in love Jesus is with each and every one of us and why he made the matchless sacrifice to die on the cross for us.

Jesus’ interaction with Thomas shows that the resurrected Jesus is full of love and graciousness and gentleness to His people. May He remind us of those things in both the big, tangible moments and the small, everyday ones, too.

Growing in Faith and Relationship with Jesus and My Sister

Written by: Raegan Feuerbacher

We all know how it is with our siblings. We can’t stand each other when we’re living together, but when we move out and go our separate ways because of college, jobs, or something else, we become stuck like glue. Can you relate to that? My twin sister and I were close-ish before we graduated from high school. We shared a car, we shared our clothes (and still do), and we had five out of seven classes together. It wasn’t until we were living 1-1/2 hours away from each other that we truly began to get closer to one another.

I feel that my relationship with Christ is almost the same way. I didn’t truly understand what it meant to have a relationship with Him until I was in high school and in my early years at college. Even then, I wasn’t regularly attending a small group or Bible study. I wasn’t even studying my Bible when I was alone in my dorm room. I wasn’t connected to Jesus.

Face Timing my sister became a regular occurrence while walking from class to class or when I needed someone to sit with me while I worked on my homework. You see, I’m a “social worker.” I need another body in the room with me while I’m attempting to do anything productive so that I am, in fact, productive. Now, we text each other every single day and often FaceTime or call more than once.

In the same way, we’ve challenged each other to spend time with Jesus in prayer or in study. My sister spent the summer away doing ministry for FUGE camps and came back on fire for Christ. It inspired me to get off my lazy bum and start studying the Word. We would text each other to check in when we had completed our Bible study or our prayer journal. Her return from camp got me to grow closer to Jesus in a completely different way.

Don’t get me wrong. I attend church every Sunday and serve in some capacity in one way or another almost every week. There are times when that helps me feel closer to Jesus. Other times, and if I’m being honest, most of the time here recently, I haven’t felt closer to Christ doing those things. They’ve become habits, albeit good ones, but they aren’t challenging me to grow. Since implementing a nightly prayer in my prayer journal, I have felt myself become more aware of Jesus. I see the little things that I might’ve missed before. I don’t always run to worldly things to address my anxieties (progress over perfection, y’all). I pray about them.

I had always wanted to grow in the prayer area of my faith journey. It wasn’t until my twin sister inspired me to do so that it happened. I’ve gotten closer to Jesus, and I’ve gotten closer to my sister. I talk to her every day, and I talk to Jesus every day now. We’re all on our own journeys to get closer to Jesus. Even those of us who are seasoned Christians are striving to be closer to Jesus, and one day, not on this side of heaven, we will be closer to Him than we could ever imagine.
