“Celebration” has always been at the heart of worship at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, and “grand” is an added and fitting descriptor for the special worship services on Sunday, March 3, when the church will officially celebrate the opening of its new Hwy. 150 Campus at 2100 Hwy. 150 in Floyds Knobs, Ind.
As always, the public is invited to the contemporary services at 8:30 and 11 a.m. and the traditional service at 9:45, all in the Worship Center. Families and individuals of all ages may participate in several opportunities for worship, fellowship, and Christian education with the church family that comes primarily from Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties and the Louisville area.
Pastor Tony Alstott will present messages at the Sunday morning Grand Celebration worship services, and adult Sunday School classes will meet at 8:30 and 9:45. Kids’ Rock, a worship service for children, takes place at 8:30 and 11, while Sunday School for all children is offered at all three hours. A nursery is provided. In addition, Wesley Chapel hosts another traditional Sunday worship service at 5 p.m. at the church’s Grant Line Campus at 4810 Grant Line Rd.
Wesley Wednesdays at the Hwy. 150 Campus feature Simply Suppers from 5 to 6:15, and reservations are not needed. Classes and discipleship groups begin at 6:30 p.m.
Several opportunities for worship, fellowship, and learning will continue throughout the month.
