Welcome to Wesley United Methodist Church!
We are a congregation committed to loving God and loving people. We do this in a variety of ways including worship, small groups and service.
We worship together as a faith community on Sunday mornings at 10:00. Our worship service incorporates visual arts, Praise Team, Chancel Choir, talented musicians, periodic dramas, Reader’s Theaters and film clips. Sunday services draw upon a variety of traditions, including thematic, contemplative and music-driven worship. Some that you may have grown up practicing and some that may be a new experience to enjoy. We seek to find as many opportunities and avenues to connect our lives with God’s call as possible. Because we are committed to each person, we value and honor a wide range of worship expressions and are open to new worship experiences.
We recognize that not every style or music speaks to each person and so are willing to expand beyond our understanding of worship to find fresh ways to offer ourselves and our lives to our faithful and gracious Lord.

History of Wesley United Methodist Church
On May 23, 2010 the congregations of McKinley UMC and Central UMC came together to worship at Windom Park in Winona, MN. It was their first worship together to begin the merging of the two congregations into one new “reborn” congregation. Over the next two years the mission statement of “Love God. Love People.” was formed and then on May 6 2012 the new name “Wesley United Methodist Church” was chosen for this reborn congregation.
We are in the midst of discovering who God is calling us to be and we invite you to come join us in this discovery as we worship God together.
