Re-Gathering Information

Updated October 29, 2020

In light of increased concern over large-scale spread of coronavirus in Minnesota and elsewhere, the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church has dialed the precaution level back to Orange as of October 27, 2020. Read the entire announcement here.

Wesley UMC has a Re-gathering Task Force which is tasked with interpreting guidelines relating to building use and programming during the pandemic. Church Council approved last week their recommendations for limited, small group activities in our church building during the Yellow Phase.  However, in light of the Conference dialing back from the Yellow Phase to Orange, they will need to re-evaluate those recommendations.  At this point, the church is closed to all gatherings.  Exceptions are made for the Red Cross blood drive and for voting.

Building Use

In deepest concern for the health of the Winona community, Wesley United Methodist Church is closed at this time for all community events.  This includes the following:

  • In-Person Worship Services
  • All Guest Groups
  • Souper Tuesday Meals
  • Fellowship Groups and Choir
  • ESL Classes
  • Boy Scout and Girl Scout Meetings
  • Committee Meetings
  • Concerts and Special Events

Our office staff is working from home.  To speak to our office coordinator, please call 507-452-6784 during office hours (10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday – Thursday).
