Sign-Up and Share!

 

I have just received information about the Crop Walk, and now all we need are folks like you!

First, know that Rev. Keith gave a great message last Sunday about following Christ rather than standing on the sidelines.  If you watch this video that Keith showed on Sunday, his message had to do with taking action like Christ, and living a sacrificial life just like Jesus, and just like the father in the video.

Secondly, you can help live a sacrificial life by joining us in our CROP Walk, put on by many folks in San Jose.  There are two separate sign-ups, so please, click on either one or both. 

If you want to walk, click here.  Walkers can go at their own pace, and there's a 1-mile and a 3-mile walk.  Please note that on the day of the walk, please wear your Wesley Wear T-shirt! Check-in is at 1:00pm at Hoover Middle School (1635 Park Ave., San Jose, CA 95126).

If you want to just donate, click here. At Wesley, we don't fundraise individually but as a church.  This form is to make a promise of how much you would like to give.  Afterwards, you can either mail or bring the check to the office or drop it off at one of our registration tables on April 17th and April 24th in the Fellowship Hall.

If you want to invite your friends to join TEAM WESLEY in the walk or help contribute to our team, Share this blog: www.wesleysj.net/wellness.  

Our first team training walk was a nice trail nearby the Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Facility, nearby Levi Stadium and Baylands park.  It was a flat trail that rounded out about 3 miles round-trip.  Please Join us on April 9th for our last team training walk!

Wesley Walkers 3 week devotional recap

Hi everyone, 

I wanted to update you on the last three weeks as we approach our 21 day mark and the halfway point to our Walkers workshop.

We have been sending newsletters out to folks and just want you all to see:

Stay focused on your health and on your faith.  All in the name of Christ!

Three ways to record your steps

Hi Walkers!

Just wanted to give you three ways to record your steps to our large count:

  1. REPORT YOUR STEPS TO YOUR TEAM LEADER - your team leader will be keeping track of your weekly steps, your team's steps, and the church's total steps week by week.
  2. LOG THEM DIRECTLY ONLINE - Really simple - just go to the website, click on your team leader, select the week, and input the total number of steps for that week.
  3. WRITE IT DOWN ON THE SPREADSHEET IN THE FELLOWSHIP HALL - We will have a spreadsheet on the back wall of the fellowship hall by teams, and just log in your total steps for the week on the sheet! 

Wesley Walkers Workshop Part 1 - Recap

Hello Everyone!  

We had an amazing turn-out for our part 1 series of our Wesley Walkers Workshop!  The Wellness Ministry leadership team talked to everyone about the benefits of walking and shared a little bit about themselves and how staying healthy is part of their lives along with Christ in their lives, along with some visions they have for their teams.  We had over 60 people attend part 1 of the workshop, and I estimate an additional 40 others who want to participate in the 6-week program! As we move into part 2 next Sunday after worship, we will have you all divide up into groups led by your team leaders that you choose to follow.  Below is an outline of resources, reminders, announcements, and things to look forward to in the next few weeks and months!  Better health --> Better you --> Better servant for Christ.  Please join us next Sunday in the Chapel at 11:30 for part 2 of our walkers workshop, and the beginning of our combined goal to walk five million steps!

  • Upcoming Events & Announcements
    • IF YOU HAVE NOT REGISTERED YET, please register online or download the hard copy and turn it into Jon or your Team Leader next Sunday.
    • Walkers Workshop Part 2 - 11:30am (after Worship) in the Chapel. We will be recapping a little bit from part 1 to see if there's any questions, and then you will meet with your teams.  Not able to make it to this meeting? no problem, just try to track your steps and contact me or the team leader that you would like to work with for the next 6 weeks.
    • Sports Basement footwear clinic, Sunday January 10th, 5:00-7:00pm (Pruneyard in Cambell).  Clinic talk will begin at 5:30pm.  Ron Ogi has asked folks at Sports Basement in the pruneyard in Campbell to hold an informal clinic talking about the importance of footware.  Everyone who attends will receive a 20% discount coupon towards your purchase of your new equipment!  Join us for a fun night!
