If You Are Hospitalized

Due to patient confidentiality laws, if you or a family member are hospitalized, please let the Pastor or Kara Ade know. When you check into the hospital, let them know that your church is Bethel Wesley UMC and/or have a friend or family member call the church to inform us. Also, if you know someone that is home-bound and needs a visit, please let us know and we will make sure that you (or they) are visited.

Missions Giving

It’s not too late to contribute to the annual “Easter Offering.”  Part of the Easter tradition at Bethel Wesley United Methodist Church is to share our blessings with others. The Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church has suggested six special Ministries that we will support. All of them will be covered with a ONE TIME OFFERING which will be collected through early May. <!–split–>

Following are our 6 special ministries:

  • One Great Hour of Sharing (UMCOR) 20%
  • Human Relations Day (community development programs in low income areas) 9%
  • Native American Ministries (recognizes and supports the contributions of Native Americans to the Church) 9%
  • World Communion (helps support education and training of Church Leadership) 9%
  • Peace and Justice Sunday (aids disciples who are changing lives and the world) 9% United Methodist Student Day (helps students to continue education) 9%

In addition, the Mission Committee has selected two other agencies to support:

  • Churches of the Quad Cities Food Pantries 20%
  • Golden Cross Agencies of IGRC (Baby Fold, Chaddock, United Methodist Children’s Home, etc.) 15%

Remember that your contribution is a one-time gift for this year that will support all eight agencies. Please mark “Easter” on the memo line of your check. We pray that you will give generously.
