In-Person Worship

We are excited to welcome you back to our in-person worship service at Wesley Chapel Church.  We want everyone to have an awesome, meaningful, safe time worshiping together again!  Join us each Sunday at 9:00 AM in the Sanctuary.

As a reminder, our online worship, Just Word, will continue each week for those who are unable to attend in-person worship.
