Each year, passing fads (team Laurel 4 life!!!!) and lasting culture shapers (see the incredible stories and continued impact of the #MeToo movement) go scrolling by as our social news feeds are opened. Some make us laugh, some inspire us and some move us.

Reflecting on the past year, we collected the top 10 social media posts from The Wesleyan Church:

1. Happy 50th, TWC.

In addition to celebrating where God has brought us, we were reminded of our responsibility to steward what’s next.

The Wesleyan Church // 50th Anniversary

In 1968, God began a new chapter in our movement. Two denominations, Pilgrim Holiness and Wesleyan Methodist, merged, “that the world may believe." The Wesleyan legacy and scriptural mission continue. Today, we are both recipients and stewards. The future is in our hands. Let’s see what God is up to next, as we are made new again.#50together

2. Go away, Florence!

On September 14, Hurricane Florence made landfall on the southernmost coast of North Carolina. You were asked to pray and give through World Hope International, and you responded in a beautiful way!

3. A Beautiful MOSAIC.

The year’s most popular “Made New Story.” Catch the entire video here.

4. A Permanent Immigration Solution.

Dr. Schmidt wrote a resounding call for Wesleyans to steward our voice well.

6. Bye, Billy.

Reverend Billy Graham passed away on February 21. He was a self-proclaimed man of one message, “that Jesus Christ came, he died on a cross, he rose again, and he asked us to repent of our sins and receive him by faith as Lord and Savior, and if we do, we have forgiveness of all of our sins.”

7. He is Risen!

The TWC team used classic wood etchings to create a series of posts for Passion Week, culminating in the gospel message: He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said he would!

8. Wesleyan View of Domestic Violence.

The TWC position paper on Domestic Violence was shared during Domestic Violence Awareness Month as a reminder that it is our duty to hear and respond to the prophetic call, “to bind up the brokenhearted” (Isaiah 61:1).
