A fire ravaged the Wesley United Methodist Church in Marshfield on Sunday, September 2, destroying the historic 137 year old building. No one was inside the church at the time the fire started. Please pray for the Wesley congregation, their leadership and their pastor, Lourdes Magalhaes, as they move through this tragic and difficult time. Where possible, please give your congregation a chance to contribute to the restoration and rebuilding effort. We encourage people to give through their local church offering by writing a check to their local church and putting Fund 7999 Marshfield: Wesley Fire in the check memo.

The Wesley UMC Facebook page thanked Bishop Jung, District Superintendent Tsuker Yang and all the neighbors and friends who came to support them, as well as all the firemen and police officers who worked for so many hours. The following day they shared, “Wesley United Methodist Church met for a time of thanksgiving. After an inspired word from our DS Rev. Tsuker, with tears in our eyes we say Lord, Great is Thy Faithfulness. We are overcoming together, growing together and rebuilding together.”
