Your Money and Why It Matters

Stewardship is about using the many gifts that God gives us to be in ministry with our neighbors.  Your stewardship, by your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and faithful witness, allows Wesley to continue being a place where students can live into their faith journey in a safe, loving environment.  Without your support the ministry that happens at Wesley would not be possible!  So here is a look at where you money goes and why it matters so much!
