So, have you met Queen yet?

Who is Queen? Well, she is the manager of our new neighbor, Dollar General.

We met her the other day when Karen took some homemade cookies as they were installing the shelves and fixtures.

We attached a note that read, "Thank you. The churches of this community have been believing together for this for over a-year-and-a-half. You are building more than a Dollar General store. This is a MONUMENT TO FAITH. From your friends at: Hortense Wesleyan ChurchHortense Holiness ChurchOne Life At A Time Ministries,Hortense Church of God of Prophecy, Twin Rivers Baptist, Satilla Baptist Church, and Philadelphia Wesleyan Church."

This comes from the messages I began preaching back in October of 2016 at Sawgrass and in March 2017 at our 5th Sunday Night service about believing God for a Dollar General. I based this on Isaiah 61:4-7 which talks about the people of he Messiah (us) rebuilding waste places and desolate cities.

If the Lord lays it upon your heart to do something and you would like to attach a similar note, let me know.

And be ready, the same email I sent to Dollar General about our area I also sent to McDonald's, Chick-Fil-A, and Krystal!

Thanks and Many Blessings,

Pastor Tim and Karen




The ALL NEW SAWGRASS STUDENT MINISTRY was launched this year. We meet on Wednesday Nights @ 7p

The SAWGRASS STUDENT MINISTRY is open to students from 6th grade through 12th. For this first year, we are also open to repeating 5th graders.






Parents, we have lots of neat things for your kids.

First, on Sunday Mornings we have Sunday School @ 9:45a (Come at 9:30 for donuts, coffee, juice, and chocolate milk).

Then at 11a we have Children’s Church. A Nursery is also available, and also @ 6p during our Interactive Sunday Nights Worship Service.

Then on Wednesdays @ 7p we have a fantastic Kid’s Club. And, as always, a Nursery is available for “the youngest among us”. 



So you've been thinking about dropping by Sawgrass some Sunday but you want to know what you can expect first? That's cool. We understand that. So here is what is happens on a typical Sunday morning...

First you will encounter a beautiful, 113-year old building nestled among the trees. Looks like a scene right out of a pioneer movie! Someone, most likely our Pastor, will greet you at the door. Once you come inside you will again be greeted warmly. Lots of good folks here at Philadelphia Wesleyan Church. You will be given a bulletin. About 5 minutes before our service begins a video announcement loop will play with information about our church and upcoming events.

Following that video a worship video will signal the start of our service. This praise and worship song will generally be up tempo and contemporary. Feel free to sing along. Even clap if you like. (You will notice the Pastor will not be clapping much, but that is because he cannot clap and sing at the same time!). Once the video song ends, there is a brief welcome and live announcements. At that point our pianist and song leader takes over to lead us in two great hymns or spiritual songs of the faith.

A time of prayer comes next, and one more hymn. During that last hymn anyone who would like to be prayed for directly is encouraged to come forward.

After the offering, our kids will be dismissed to Children's Church. Right before the sermon we will worship with one more contemporary video song.

Then our Pastor will bring the morning message with a time for response at the end.

Beginning to end, about 75 minutes of simple, heart-felt worship.

Hope to see you here.
