“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can.
At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” —John Wesley
Our mission statement is to make disciples through the transforming love of Jesus Christ. Our first step is to reach out and serve to those in need. The Community Dinner is designed to feed the community on the fourth Wednesday of every month. We also contribute to their needs by handing out personal hygiene items on these nights and seasonally clothes, blankets, flu shots and pray for and with everyone.
Join us next month on the fourth Wednesday at 5PM to 7PM for food, fellowship and community. If you would like to help with this mission, please call the office at 904-757-7909.
Mission Monday is our primary group for all women of our church. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month in the church fellowship hall from 10AM until 5PM.
Although we do feed some families in need at Feed My Sheep we know that this is not nearly enough. We have teamed up with churches on the northside of Jacksonville to feed families in the area through our food pantry next to our church office. Our church office gives out approximately 500 referrals a month for families to receive 2 weeks of groceries once a quarter.
On the first Sunday of each month we also invite our congregation to donate funds for food pantry purchases or canned goods.
John Wesley and his friends spent a great deal of time visiting and praying for the imprisoned. Our goal with this ministry is to reach out to those who have lost their freedom and let them know that God cares for them, and in turn, so do we.

At Wesley learning is one of our top priorities but we always strive to have fun while doing so.
