After School Program
Our "Wonderful Wednesday" after school program is open to all students grades K-8. We offer individualized homework help, crafts, special projects, snacks and dinner. The program typically runs from September until the first week in May. We meet the children in grades K-5 at the schools and escort them to the church (the middle schoolers are on their own to get to the church). We have a team of caring volunteers who help to tutor and assist with crafts and activities each week.
Anyone interested in learning more about the program or to register a participant can contact Barb Dearing at the church 570-374-8015.
We offer aerobics, Zumba and Strong by Zumba. Classes are free and open to the community. For a copy of the schedule, contact the church office at 570-374-8015 or you can find it on this website under events. You can also find a schedule on Facebook at Zumba at Wesley.

Outreach & WItness
Wesley's Outreach and Witness Team (WOW) strive to reach people in the community who are in need. While sharing the love of Jesus, the team offers help through monetary or material donations. The team is also willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed. This help is provided by many donations and fundraisers run by the team and supported by the generosity of our congregation and community. Wesley Church also supports programs locally such as Meals 4 Seals, the SACC holiday food boxes and the annual Christmas Dinner. In addition, we participate in ministries nationally and abroad while extending Christ's love in any way possible.

dress a girl
Five years later (as of May 2018) a total of 2,120 dresses have been sent with mission teams to nine different countries. Where have they gone? Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Haiti, Costa Rica, Dominica, Panama, Guatemala, and Honduras.
When it was decided to start this mission, not only did we receive support from an enthusiastic group of women who shared our ideas, but we received financial and material support as well. The majority of this happened by word of mouth...Wesley Church soon became known as the church that makes the dresses.
