Klassika To Present Special Music at Wesley UMC

Klassika To Present Special Music at Wesley

Please add a reminder in your calendar that Klassika will present Special Music at Wesley UMC on December 13th during the 11:15AM Worship Service. Remember when Jolanda Nels sang in our church during a Sunday Service? This time, she is joined with the rest of the group, introducing  Chris Romeo,  Derek Roura, and Stephanie McCranie.

Klassika® is a classical crossover group based in Tampa.  They made their international debut in 2016 in Ireland.  Their most notable performance there was at the historic Charleville Castle.  Klassika® was invited to perform at the renowned Vrystaat Art Festival in South Africa in 2019.   They were also asked to sing at IMMERSE 2019 for the VIP dinner event.

This group has been performing together since 2012 with performances at corporate events, performing arts centers, fashion shows, restaurants, churches, and many more.  The musicians are all classically trained with extensive performance experience.  Klassika® performs popular songs with a classical twist. The singers are Chris Romeo, Jolanda Nel, Derek Roura, and Stephanie McCranie.


HOPE Ministry

Wesley is excited to announce a new HOPE ministry!  The Hillsborough Organization for Progress and Equality (HOPE) formed over 30 years ago, and today there are 23 local, faith-based congregations on a mission to promote justice, fairness, and the dignity of people — by engaging and training members to effectively act together to achieve long term resolution to serious community problems impacting our families and neighbors.

This year, HOPE is focusing on two areas of community concern:  mental health/addiction, and criminal justice reform. Carol Dittmar is seeking volunteers to serve on the HOPE team at Wesley, which will primarily involve attending virtual meetings to address these issues with experts and elected officials and to conduct other HOPE business. There will be a Zoom meeting on Monday, Dec. 14, at 7:00 PM for anyone interested in joining the team or seeking more information about HOPE.  If you would like to attend,  send her an email at to receive a link to join the meeting.

Invitation to A Camping Retreat

The UMM group invites all interested men to a camping retreat at the Vortex Spring Camping Park located in the Panhandle region. Also, for those who know Fred Wood, the park is near his new home up north so we’ll stop there and say hello to him. The camping retreat is scheduled for the weekend of October 23-25, 2020.

It is an opportunity for all of the men young or old to get together and fellowship with the Lord and each other. Besides camping, there are trails to hike on and kayaks or canoes to paddle around the park’s clear waterways. You can also try your hand at campfire cooking. Who knows, you may win a blue ribbon or a least a pat on the back!

For more information, contact Herman Small at 813 927 1606.
