Welcome to Southside Wesleyan

<< New text box >>I was in a Zoom meeting all yesterday morning. I listened to some Pastor's that were struggling with this social isolation - what it means to the church and to them personally. One said that at first tithes and offerings were SO bad he started looking for another job! (It bounced back, thankfully) There was a church that had (had) two locations. Down to one and now the future of the one is in question. Leaders were leaving one church. Another Pastor told the story of a meeting in which one newer leader felt they had been left out of a decision - although the board had met and came to the decision in the "usual" way. We haven't dealt with ANY of this and we (Char and I) have ONLY felt support and encouragement. Giving has been solid given our circumstances. There is a desire to do more parking lot events but there is also a need to keep the online presence going. The tough part is accommodating both at the moment. The online portion would be recorded while Sunday morning is "live". Two separate set-ups, two different times - basically doing everything twice. Charlotte thinks she might have a solution but we have to test it. Those sentences kind of sums up the bind. IF we abide by meeting and distancing rules we can't have people here making it happen. Which means Char and I have to put our heads together and see what, if anything, can be worked out. I typed all of that to only say this - people have been supportive, understanding, and patient in the midst of all this confusion and isolation. Thank you, again, for being the people, the Christians, the church you are. You, led by God's Holy Spirit, have made the experience of dealing with all of this much easier than some of my peers have been experiencing. Thank you for being the church - thank you for being "our" church. I'm going to "steal" some words from the book of Hebrews (I'll admit slightly out of context!), Hebrews 6:9 "Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are convinced of better things in your case..." You have done and are doing the "better things". Thank you for making all of this easier on your church, your Pastor and his wife.


What We Believe

Wesleyans believe in one God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Savior of all men and women who put their faith in Him alone for eternal life. We believe that those who receive new life in Christ are called to be holy in character and conduct, and can only live this way by being filled with the Lord's Spirit. We believe in the Bible and seek to establish our faith and actions on its teaching. We believe God wills for people everywhere to know Him and that the purpose of the Church is to tell the world about Christ through its worship, witness, and loving deeds.
