Sunday starts at 10AM with a Community Worship Service.  This service will feature moments of prayer, Bible scripture reading, vibrant music, and a message from God's Word.  Worship music will be lead by the North Collins Wesleyan Praise Team and Pastor Justin Leininger will be delivering the message.  As with all services at North Collins Wesleyan Church - there is no cost or dress code.  Come as you are!  You are always welcome!

Following the service, NC Wesleyan will be providing a small free lunch.  After lunch, all are welcome to join in multiple service projects taking place in the area of the Town Park.  We encourage everyone to come prepared to serve in this meaningful and fun atmosphere.  Serving is a great way to give back to this community and to get to know others of our community better!

There are projects for all ages and abilities.  They include:

  • North Collins Cemetery clean-up.
  • Constructing new community gardens next to the Senior Building.
  • Painting park picnic tables.
  • Giving the town storage building a new clean look.
  • Repairing and clearing the park's nature trail.
