We have shared biblical texts for discussion, chatted about concepts of theology, and read seasonal devotionals together.

Wednesday Morning Wesleyans meets Wednesdays at 10:00 am at Channing House, located near downtown Palo Alto at 850 Webster Street between Homer and Channing. The group meets in the 5th floor lounge.
