Dear Wesley Church Family,

Twenty months ago, on March 15, 2020, we conducted our last “unrestricted in-church service” at Wesley UMC Baton Rouge. Then we went into a COVID 19 induced lockdown that was supposed to last only two weeks. As you recall, we did initiate restricted in-church services last June, however due to the COVID-19 Delta Variant, that only lasted three weeks. Now, it is almost two years later and thankfully, we have been able to provide continuous on-line streaming broadcasts of our services since then. Those broadcasts have contained selections recorded from our homes and from our church building. Realizing, that some of you have not been to in-person church for over a year, on Sunday November 21st, 2021, it is my privilege to welcome you back to church. We will also include new members that have joined via Facebook Live. It is exciting to begin to move back toward being the “family” that God intends His church to be. It will be so good to once again see those we love, our “family,” the community of faith that is Wesley UMC Baton Rouge.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Warm regards,

Pastor Sweetwyne
