FWC is a friendly, multi-ethnic congregation of followers of Jesus Christ who have encountered Jesus Christ
as Savior and Lord, located two miles west of the Statue of Liberty in Jersey City, New Jersey. FWC has
a rich history dating 100 years!
Today the congregation consist of members from various walks of life and nations, including the United
States of course! We invite you to visit our worship services and attend our Bible studies. We are a
congregation under the Wesleyan Church umbrella (www.wesleyan.org), however, we believe the Kingdom of
God is bigger than any one denomination.
Due to the Covid-19 virus we have been suspending services until it is deemed safe. We are anticipating opening the church building doors for in the building Sunday worship on Sunday August 2 for people 55 and older (if you are a grandparent you may bring your grandchildren). However, things will be different for a while until the covid virus subsides. Then on August 9, those under 55 may come. We have to split the congregation as we have a capacity limit of 25%. It will be on a alternating cycle. Masks must be worn, We may take temperatures at the door. Hand sanitizers are available upon entering. An Usher will seat you, which likely won’t be where you have normally sat in the past. We will social distance. Services will be shorter and attendees will leave by sections. There will be no hugs or handshakes. People who are reluctant to cooperate need not come at this time. If you have a fever or don’t feel well, are unsure, please stay at home and watch us on livestream. In the meantime, we will continue to livestream. We have ordered permanent live stream equipment that will not be in the aisles, however, it may not be working by August 2. In any case we will attempt to use cameras in the aisles until the switch is made. Services on Sunday may be viewed on our Jersey City First Wesleyan Facebook page at 11 a.m.https://www.facebook.com/groups/JCFWC/Afterwards it is available on Youtube at “Donavan Shoemaker” https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCks2ICP4me8El3zPUzYGj_wPlease continue to financially support FWC through our online giving or by mail at PO BOX 15596, Jersey City, NJ 07305-0596.
