GO BACK

One of Wesley's more extensive outreach ministries is its involvement in Circle of Friends.  Wesley is one of approximately a dozen area churches and other organizations that participate in a rotating food disbursement on weekends

Circle of Friends was started by a homeless man named Bill Padgett in 2001 to supplement the area soup kitchens, which have limited operations on weekends.

Between 4-5 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday, meals have been prepared and served to the needy in the downtown Morgantown area, either at the First Baptist Church on High Street or in the Wesley gymnasium.

Wesley takes its turn in the rotation on the second weekend of each month. 

 Circle of Friends is an outreach program designed to reach those in our community who are struggling enough to need a weekend meal.  Meals are typically served through the Trinity Episcopal Church during the weekdays, but on the weekends, various churches around town join forces to provide the meals.  Responsibility rotates from church to church, week to week.  Wesley is responsible for the 2nd weekend each month.  Please watch the schedule posted in the lecture room as well as the website to get involved.  You may also contact Wesley’s Circle of Friends coordinator, Paul Ragland for more information.

 Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.  Matthew 25:34,35. 

 Come and be blessed by the fellowship this wonderful ministry offer
