Worship at Athens Wesleyan Church
There are no “assigned seats” here, just family.
We believe that worship is sacred and is therefore essential to each and every one of us.
Worship tunes our hearts to resonate with God, resolves discord, and produces a harmony among believers.
Understanding that there are different preferences in worship styles, we blend the contemporary and the classics while trying to avoid the extremes and meet the needs of those who attend.

More about our services
Our morning service is “blended” in style, meaning that we use both contemporary and traditional music. It is our hope that worship can draw us closer together as we draw close to God. For those with children, we do provide a nursery space with a speaker for those who would like to listen to the service. We also have a children’s church time for our young ones to engage in lessons that might be more accessible for them. These are both optional, and we welcome our kids to stay in the sanctuary as well!
We have several Sunday school classes to choose from. There are classes for toddlers, kids and teens, an adult class, and a focused Bible class.
Many are surprised to learn that we still have a Sunday evening service! This service is more “traditional” in nature, and we sing from the hymnals. It is a more relaxed atmosphere, and everyone is welcome to join us. We meet in the Library, which can be accessed through the office doors located around the right side of the church.
We also have a mid-week Prayer/Bible study that meets at 10:30 on Wednesday mornings. This study walks through a book of the Bible, usually no more than a chapter at a time. There is a time set aside for prayers, both silent and spoken; no one will force you to pray or make you feel awkward if you don’t.
We have also have our Neighborhood Kids program that meets from 6:00-7:30 on Wednesday nights for kids in grades K-6, throughout the school year. We present the message in a way that the children will understand. Everyone is welcome!
