What did Wesley Practice and Preach About Money

Jan. 17, 2020 @ 3:50 pm

We know John Wesley brought revival to 18th-century England and started the Methodist Movement. We know him as a great preacher and a greater organizer. But few of us realize that Wesley made enormous sums from preaching--the sale of his writings made him one of England's wealthiest men. If you google John Wesley's Net Worth, the calculation over his lifetime is $50M in dollars. In an age when a single man could live comfortably on 30 pounds a year, his annual income reached 1,400.

Pews & Kids Chairs

Jan. 10, 2020 @ 4:53 pm

In the cleaning of Wesley Hall after the new furnaces were put in we have realized we have several pews stored in different areas that are no longer being used. If you would like to purchase one of the extra pews the cost is $200 per pew.

We also have an overabundance of children's chairs on the 3rd floor of Wesley Hall (3rd floor only). These are FREE and come in 3 to 4 different sizes.

If you are interested in either the pews or chairs please come in to take a look or call the church office for questions, 712-246-2081. You must haul the pews or chairs yourself.
