Wesley 100

The Wesley 100 is Wesley Memorial’s Methodist men’s group.

The Wesley 100 is Wesley Memorial’s Methodist men’s group. Our goal is to offer the men of the church a place to be the hands and feet of Christ and help Wesley Memorial’s mission of making Disciples of Christ.

Our name comes from a quote by John Wesley: “Give me one hundred men who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or layman, they alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of heaven on earth.”

The bible verse we chose for the Wesley 100 is Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” We are here to do God’s work, to further the missions of the church and to help and encourage each other in our walks in Christ. While our name contains the number 100, we are really the faithful 15-20, so we have a lot of room for more men. We need you!

Over the past years these men have raised and distributed tens of thousands of dollars to support the ministries and missions of the church, both local, national, and global. We have also contributed our time and labor in support of many church events and missions.

In Summary

If 15-20 men can accomplish this much, could you imagine what we could do with 100 men? I believe John Wesley was right….100 men who want to serve God could shake things up.

For any men who would like to check us out, we meet the third Saturday of each month in the at 8:30am for breakfast in the dining hall where we have a home breakfast to start our meeting off.  You can ask any member of the group, or the church office, and we’ll get you on the email list. Even if you cannot attend our Saturday meetings, we would love to have you in our group and help on our projects.
