Reflecting the heart of God, Christians at their best are known as people who take special care of orphans. It’s thrilling to see believers today still earning that reputation. More Wesleyan churches are emphasizing adoption and foster care locally as well as through international outreach to orphan projects such as Global Partners ministries in China and Haiti. Any church or family can be a part of this growing movement on Orphan Sunday, November 8, or pick a Sunday of your choice in November. Learn more at Orphan Sunday (Christian Alliance for Orphans).
Advent 2015: LOVE Revealed

The Church Multiplication and Discipleship Division of The Wesleyan Church has announced the release of the Advent 2015 all church resource. LOVE Revealed features four weeks of spiritual preparation leading up to Christmas. Included are sermon outlines, disciple group lessons for children, youth, and adults, devotionals, daily readings, and more.
Revealing His LOVE for the world, God sent His only Son so that we might live through Him.
