We once again visited Wesley United Methodist while on SSI. What a wonderful time of traditional worship! Great sermon delivered by Reverend Patton; dynamic pipe organ; beautiful sanctuary.

Very nice looking church. We thought there were supposed to be a lot of flowers in the gardens but in mid May we didn't see any. And the flying bugs were really bad in the woodsy area, so we didn't explore much. The stone work on the church is pretty.

The most beautiful church on this scenic island, filled with loving people who make the extra effort to meet, greet, and welcome you. The message is solid and easily grasped, and the venue truly inspires.

We came upon Wesley after a walk through the woods and were warmly invited to their Wednesday evening supper of fried chicken with all the trimmings. What a lovely, serendipitous experience for five travelers on their way home from Florida!
