On September 27th, the Wesley Chapel Agape Kid's Program kicked off a new season with the Moo Zoo!

This year's lessons will be all about animals in the Bible, so what better way to start than to cuddle with some of God's creatures! The Moo Zoo is a small petting zoo owned and operated by the Latuch family. The kids enjoyed petting Polly (the miniature donkey), Callie and Carley (the sweet Holstein calves), Gypsy (the soon-to-be momma goat) and Peter and Blossom (the soft and lovable bunnies!) Fourteen children shared in the fun and fellowship of the evening! A big thank you to Tim, Lindsay, Kaitlyn, Natalie and Hannah Latuch for graciously donating their time and making our kickoff such a special event!

Agape Kids will meet every Wednesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. now through March. Please bring your little ones and encourage them to bring a friend! - Angie Millin

Welcome to our conference’s new name! No longer the Western PA Conference, we are now part of three areas combined into one—the entirety of the State of Ohio and the Western Pennsylvania Conference. The logo at the top symbolizes those three areas under the Global Methodist Church. This is a movement of like-minded, warm-hearted, Spirit filled, Jesus-loving, evangelical, orthodox Wesleyan Christians committed to spreading scriptural holiness and offering the Gospel to the world.

The provisional conference was held on October 12—14 at the Reynoldsburg Community Church. Pastors with one lay delegate were invited to come to enact the legislation of the conference. Wesley Chapel is now part of the Somerset/Bedford Circuit under the guidance of Doug Burns, our presiding elder. The theme of the conference was “Becoming One”, and as three former conferences, we had a three-day inspirational event with Holy Spirit guided worship, vision casting, healing and sound instruction in Biblical teaching. I encourage everyone to go to the conference’s new website at https://alleghenywestgmc.org/ to read and examine the tenets of our faith. Imagine an annual conference with no pronoun issues, social justice pleas and no “safe zones”….just worshiping and getting back to the basics of Methodism as John and Charles Wesley envisioned for our faith.

There was reason to celebrate as over 150 clergy were ordained. This is likely the largest ordination in the history of American Methodism and the result of a long journey for many pastors and lay persons. More information will be forthcoming as this provisional conference still has some “heart work” to do. Below are people entering worship and the many ordinands who will be ordained the next day. -Written by Linda Henry with excerpts taken from https://alleghenywestgmc.org/





Operation Christmas Child

What can you do with your empty shoebox after you bring home your new shoes? Did you know that a simple shoebox can bless a child in another country! You can do mission work without ever packing your bags, having to apply for a passport, getting on a plane or even leaving Somerset County! Your simple box can be turned into the biggest blessing and the most amazing gift for a child! The best part of packing that box is that with every nook and cranny that is left after packing with fun items it is filled with Jesus! Wesley Chapel has taken this task to a new level by purchasing plastic boxes through Operation Christmas Child and having packing parties to fill these boxes with items for children around the globe. Operation Christmas Child reaches to over 170 countries, and many hard to reach countries, with the shoebox gifts and the Greatest Journey. The Greatest Journey is a 12 week discipleship program that invites the child to learn about Jesus and his love. There is way more that comes out of the shoebox than what goes into the shoebox. Our church has been able to provide shoeboxes for many years and this year was no different. From the agape children helping by making handprint “You are loved” letters, to anyone that made donations to the ever growing mound of items in the back fellowship hall, to those that helped sort, organize, and stack for the packing party THANK YOU! The packing party was attended by some diligent packers, and the following week several people stopped by to help pack up more boxes. Then the people of the congregation were able to take an empty box, fill and return by November 12.

With all boxes returned another adventure for the boxes is getting delivered to Kingwood Fellowship Center. It took two SUV’s to load up and haul 257 shoeboxes. Thank you to those that helped load and haul the shoeboxes. After dropping off all the shoeboxes at Kingwood, they were loaded into cartons and placed on a pup trailer and headed out to Baltimore, Maryland where they will be processed to continue their next adventure. They will begin to reach children all around the globe in a mid January to February time frame.

THANK YOU to everyone that helped in big and small ways by donating money and items, creating items, supporting, praying and helping in packing, sorting, and prepping. Your help goes beyond the walls of Wesley Chapel and the children around the globe appreciate and love you for all you do. Somerset County Area Team had set a goal of 6,881 and our shoeboxes helped by being a part of 7,297 shoeboxes. This is an unofficial total of boxes for the county because the end of the year and shoebox building season does not end until December 31, 2023.

You still have time to add to our total by visiting https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/buildonline/

Thank you for supporting all the craziness throughout the year, and there is more exciting news to come in the upcoming months! Remember it’s never to late to shop for or pack a shoebox for a child.
