God's grace does not end at the Sanctuary Doors, and neither does Wesley
United Methodist's commitment to spreading the Good News of Christ's redeeming love. The congregation is actively involved in many mission
projects, working in RI and Southeastern MA, and globally, to create
a better world today for all God's children.
Wesley works to create opportunities throughout
the year to welcome the broader community to
Wesley UMC, and to facilitate connections among
neighbors. From meals to movie nights, from our
Christmas Bazaar to the PanCan Walk, Wesley
strengthens our bond with the greater community.
Supporting Local Community Needs
Food is Love
So many people face food insecurity, and Wesley is
honored to work with the Northern RI Food Pantry to help
to address this serious problem. Each month the food
pantry asks us to collect a needed item, such as pancake mix, peanut butter, canned fruit or soup. Donations can be brought to Worship on Sunday, and at any other time they can be placed in the green bin outside the Sanctuary doors. Our goal is to collect at least 200 of the item before food bank volunteers pick up the donations. If you'd like to help but are unable to bring food to the church, monetary donations to purchase needed items are gratefully accepted and can be sent to the church. Please include Food is Love
on the memo line. To learn the current item being collected, contact the church office at 401-724-7954 or via email
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity International is a Christian organization that welcomes volunteers from all faiths who are committed to Habitat’s goal of
eliminating sub-standard housing. Members from Wesley UMC participate
in Habitat builds, or in
providing lunches for build teams.
Bridge to Liberia
Bridge to Liberia was founded by
Wesley UMC member Donowea Seidi
to provide much needed school supplies
to children in her home country of Liberia.
Many children there do not even have
the basics of pencils and paper, making
learning even more challenging. Wesley UMC
has been a central provider of supplies
and packing location since 2015.
We join in the efforts of other local churches in partnership to make a difference our own Communities.
Mathewson Street UMC is located in Providence - right in our backyard, so to speak.
Their address is 134 Mathewson Street, Providence, RI 02903
We offer different ways to support the great work they do.
