John Wesley’s Holy Club Q & A

February 27, 2012

This past Wednesday during Statesboro First United Methodist Church’s Ash Wednesday service, Pastor Jimmy Cason read John Wesley’s 22 questions small group questions. These are historic questions Wesley would have his Holy Club (small group) members ask themselves everyday. The questions got a great response so I thought I would post them.
