Education & Youth

Wesley offers a number of ways to learn and grow. In addition to our small group studies and Student Center studies, Wesley has a vibrant Education program, offering Sunday School classes for people of any age and a children’s choir.

Kids’ Sunday School & Activities

Children are certainly welcome and encouraged to participate in the service of worship at Wesley. Worship bags are available in the entryway for kids of all ages. Nursery care is also available during the 9:30 and 11:15 worship services for children ages 2 and under.

Sunday School – every Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00
9:30 Church school classes are offered for children 3 yrs to 5th grade each Sunday in Rooms 127 A and 127 B during the 9:30 service. Middle school Sunday school is in Room 124.

Parents’ Night Out – 1st Saturday of every month
Throughout the year Wesley offers parents a night out. Kids are welcomed for a few hours of programming including play, stories, crafts and fun movies. This offers parents an opportunity for a date night, for gathering with other Wesley friends, or for catching up on much needed projects. The best part is that kids have an opportunity to grow in community at Wesley. Children of all ages are welcome. Watch for dates and more info.

Children’s Choir

The children’s choir rehearses every Sunday during Sunday school. Along with singing, they learn how to play hand bells and various percussion instruments. The children perform during the traditional church service once a month. They also participate in the Hanging of the Greens Christmas pageant and the Easter Sonrise service, where they sing and perform skits. During summer vacation bible school, the children’s choir learn songs and dances.  If you have any questions you can reach our Director of Education at maehr@wesleyui.org. Click here to learn more about music at Wesley.
