Excerpted from Dr. Jo Anne Lyon’s article
The Global Wesleyan Church expresses its condolences to the people of Egypt and also to his Holiness Pope Tawadros II, patriarch of the Coptic Orthodox Church. On Sunday, February 15, ISIS-affiliated terrorists beheaded 21 Egyptian Christians who were kidnapped in Libya. The terror group videotaped the beheadings.
Dr. Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent of The Wesleyan Church, requests that Wesleyans join her in praying for peace in Libya, Egypt, and the entire Middle East, as well as prayer for the international community and their response–particularly during Sunday services, February 22.

Oakdale Wesleyan Church would like to thank the Kindergarten class of Paidea Child Development Center for their collection and donation of items for the food pantry. They walked over their large gift on a cold morning, restocking the shelves here in time to help others have a better holiday season.
In partnership with Indiana Wesleyan University, Oakdale Wesleyan Church has sponsored an art contest. Student artists prepared works depicting Philip the Evangelist and the Ethiopian Official from Acts 8:26-40. Artwork entries hang at the Beard Arts Center at IWU from December 1, 2014 to January 9, 2015, and, in addition to the artist receiving a cash or scholarship prize from the memorial gifts of Don and Trudy Emory, the winning piece will be brought to hang permanently at Oakdale Wesleyan Church as a reminder and symbol of our mission, given to us by Jesus, to make disciples from all peoples by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The contest guidelines were: “Students should create 2D work on canvas or board that is no smaller than 24″ x 36″ and no larger than 36″ x 46″. Work can be orientated in either portrait or landscape. The style of the work may be: classical/traditional, realistic, or impressionistic, based upon any part of all of the story of Philip and the Ethiopian from Acts 8:26-40. The winning entry will be a symbol for the call to multi-ethnic ministry, making disciples and missions.” We are now pleased to show the entries and announce the winner. Continue reading
