Planning Retreat

Bethel Wesley is having a planning retreat at the Butterworth Center in Moline on Feb 6  from 6PM until9 PM and Feb 7 from 9AM until 3PM. The whole church is invited. The event will be facilitated by Mike Crawford, congregational development coordinator for the Illinois Great Rivers Conference.

The Butterworth Center is at 1105 8th Street, Moline, IL 61265.

Want to make a difference in the world?

Looking for something meaningful?

Come join in 3Ms Class at 9 am each Sunday. We are studying The Way: Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus by Adam Hamilton and then putting what we learn into practice right away:

This month we are following Jesus into the world by: 1) collecting soup for the food pantry; 2) delivering fudge and singing valentines to 22 shut-ins; 3) preparing gift bags for our local women’s shelter; and 4) providing micro loans through KIVA! <!–split–>

Next month we will reach out to New Kingdom Trail Riders, the Nest, and the Learning Center.

We also are being inspired by faith talks from: Tom Lagomarcino, Doris Lee, Sam Ade, Venture Crew members: Erica Delp and Devan Terry, Michael Callahan, Susan Serre, and representatives of the MHS Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Closet2Closet, and the Nest.

Dan and Deb Haughey will be leading us in a Love Feast in February and in March we will have a Passover Seder meal.

Come join the journey – everyone is welcome!
