A screening of the Award winning documentary A Still Small Voice! Tickets are free. Click the link below to get your tickets today!

A Still Small Voice follows chaplain Mati as she completes a year-long hospital residency, the movie explores her journey of learning how to offer spiritual support to individuals facing significant life transitions. We learn new insights on the value of genuine connection and the agony of its absence through Mati's experiences with her patients, her battle with professional burnout, and her own spiritual exploration.

A panel discussion and questions from the audience will take place after the film. The panelists include Rev. Saramaria Allenby, chaplain of Falmouth Hospital, Rev. Peter Feltman-Mahan of the Church of Messiah, and Marney Rathburn, chaplain of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.


Stewardship Ministry Team:

We’re adding more videos every month! Please visit The Stewardship in Action webpage on the John Wesley website. Just click on “Info Videos” at the top right of the home page. We have already completed nine of the 22 videos planned. All the titles are listed on the page. The completed ones are featured in the color red. The others are black and have a (coming soon) line beneath them.

We hope that these videos will be useful to our parishioners who may be wondering about a particular event or ministry team. And we hope they will be informative to our website visitors who may be searching for a church home.

On the third Sunday of each month, Pastor will feature a video in our Sunday services. Last Sunday he introduced our Contemporary Service video. Please have a look by clicking the link below.
