Community Events

This page provides information on community events that may be of interest to Wesley members, community events taking place at Wesley, or community events that involve members of our Wesley family.  Please take advantage of these opportunities to support and participate in events in our local community.
 
Writing Worship at Wesley
An AWA Writing Workshop will be held weekly at the church on Wednesday evenings between July 11th and August 29th. The workshop will be from 6:30pm to 9:30pm in the Adult Meeting Room.
Writers of all levels of experience and genres are welcome. There will be an opportunity to do new writing every week. Those who wish to do so may bring in their work in manuscript form for the workshop to read and discuss.
The fee is $35 per evening with a sliding scale for those who might be more comfortable with a lesser amount.
For more information, please call Peggy Reber at 413-367-9760. 
 
Correctional Center Volunteers Needed
The Western Massachusetts Regional Women's Correctional Center (WCC) in Chicopee seeks volunteers for their Mother/Child Visit Program on Saturday mornings from 9:30 - 11 am.  The goal of the program is to support incarcerated moms with maintaining their mother-child bond despite the difficult challenges of incarceration and separation.  As a volunteer in this program, your primary responsibility would be to monitor, support, and role model healthy mother-child interactions in a safe, clean, and child-friendly environment.  Please call Tracy Burton for details at 413-730-6952.
