Wesley UMC (Howard Charge) - Northwest


The roots of the Wesley Church extend back to 1897, when Stephen Bazemore, a good Baptist, organized a Sunday school in the schoolhouse. Brother Bazemore continued as Superintendent of the Sunday school until the new church was complete. In August 1900, Brother R. N. Wesley, pastor of the Butler Methodist Circuit, organized a new church that was to become known as Wesley UMC. At first, there was only an evening service, meeting in the schoolhouse located across the street from the present church building. The sanctuary was built in 1904, by the members of the church. Charter members of the church were drawn from the Howard and Carsonville churches.
