Ministers Musings


Greetings and thank you for visiting our website!




As a pastor, it is my sincere hope that all people are part of a church community and are actively involved in worship. If you do have a special place of worship, I encourage you to continue to attend and to support your church home.


If you are looking for a church, I invite you to visit us at The United Methodist Churches of Iola. We are two United Methodist congregations – Calvary UMC and Wesley UMC– worshiping together on Sunday mornings in the Wesley sanctuary.


Our Sunday morning begins at 9:15 a.m. as the Praise Band leads us in singing and continues with worship at 9:30     a.m.  We enjoy a Coffee and Fellowship time following worship.  Sunday school for all ages begins at 10:45 a.m. in various classrooms.




The church is a place of fellowship and in 1 John 1:7 we read …


“…if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other…”
(New Living Translation)




It is truly our desire to be in “fellowship” with other and we offer many possibilities to do just that. So, I invite you to continue to browse around our website to see what awaits you here. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 620.365.2285 or 620.365.3883 and we will be happy to assist you.


Please know that our doors are open to all and we welcome you to be with us at any time.


I hope to see you soon!






Pastor Jocelyn
