The Fellowship of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church (UMC), located three miles southeast of Churubusco,  celebrated its 175th anniversary on May 20. Approximately 225 people attended the day’s events. Wesley Chapel is one of the oldest churches in Allen County, and began in the spring of 1837.
Fellowship of Wesley Chapel UMC Pastor Larry L. Smith began the event by saying, “It’s a tremendous event for me as a pastor to celebrate 175 years. I am so glad I grew up in a church where family came first.” (Smith attended Wesley Chapel as a youngster).
Fort Wayne UMC District Superintendent Dr. David Michaels commented, “Thank you for your faithful service of 175 years. That’s 9,100 Sundays of services at this church.” He continued, “Keep praising Jesus. Teach them to be Disciples of Jesus… Keep teaching them Scriptures.”
Vernon Deutsch, a guest speaker from the Sonrise United Methodist Church in Fort Wayne, asked, “Have you thought about how many souls are in Heaven because of this church?”
The Rev. Jack Thompson, who served as pastor at Wesley Chapel from 1986-1993, remarked, “I am a Christian American. I love Jesus first and then my country.” Thompson remembered times when the future of the small country church was uncertain, but the congregation continued to pray for the church and it has remained open even though difficult times. He commented, “As long as the spirit of the Lord is in this place, you have a future.” He encouraged current church members to move forward and undertake a project to expand the sanctuary.
Long-time Wesley Chapel member Owen Gross commented, “What an honor to see this many people and many I know.” Gross recalled how his family has made this their home church and has continued to attend Wesley Chapel since 1942. “It’s an honor for us to be a part of this church,” he said and added, “Another 175 years is not out of reach.”
Indiana UMC Bishop Mike Coyner addressed the crowd by video presentation. He said, “I pray God’s blessings on all of you. Congratulations on 175 years.”
Wesley Chapel Lay Pastor Kevin Thomas also addressed the group.
After lunch, Pastor Smith, Pastor David Dilley, Curt Brincefield, and Bob Bowker addressed the crowd. The day ended with local Country-Western Christian Singers Ron & Sharon Frazier performing in the sanctuary.
