Welcome! We are delighted that you are visiting our website. We hope you will come visit us in person at our church. It is our sincere prayer that you will encounter Jesus Christ and that your life will be spiritually refreshed through your experience with us.
Please take time to look through our site and what is offered at Wesley Methodist Church, Klang. We are a church that desires to take Jesus to our community and world. We believe our website will help you get to know us even before we have the pleasure of welcoming you in person.
You are important to us because Jesus Christ loves you and died for the forgiveness of your sin. We want to make your time with us pleasurable and enriching, answer your questions, and assist you spiritually. Let us know how we can serve you.
God bless you!
The world defines greatness in terms of power, possessions, prestige, and position. If you can demand service from others, you’ve arrived. In our me-first culture, acting like a servant is not a popular concept.
Jesus, however, measured greatness in terms of service, not status. God determines your greatness by how many people you serve, not how many people serve you.
This is so contrary to the world’s idea of greatness that we have a hard time understanding it, much less practicing it. The disciples argued about who deserved the most prominent position, and 2,000 years later, people still jockey for position and prominence.
Thousands of books have been written on leadership, but few on servanthood. Everyone wants to lead; no one wants to be a servant. We would rather be generals than privates. Even Christians want to be “servant-leaders,” not just plain servants. But to be like Jesus is to be a servant. That’s what he called himself.
While knowing your shape is important for serving God, having the heart of a servant is even more important. Remember, God shaped you for service, not for self-centeredness. Without a servant’s heart, you will be tempted to misuse your shape for personal gain. You will also be tempted to use it as an excuse to exempt yourself from meeting some needs.
God often tests our hearts by asking us to serve in ways we’re not shaped. If you see a man fall into a ditch, God expects you to help him out, not say, “I don’t have the gift of mercy or service.” While you may not be gifted for a particular task, you may be called to do it if no one who is gifted at it is around. Your primary ministry should be in the area of your shape, but your secondary service is wherever you’re needed at the moment.
Your shape reveals your ministry, but your servant’s heart will reveal your maturity. No special talent or gift is required to stay after a meeting to pick up trash or stack chairs. Anyone can be a servant. All it requires is character.
It is possible to serve in church for a lifetime without ever being a servant. You must have a servant’s heart. How can you know if you have the heart of a servant? Jesus said, “You can tell what they are by what they do” (Matthew 7:16 CEV). (RICK WARREN)

July 18, 2014 @ 8:30 p.m. at Wesley Methodist Church Klang with Major Geoff & Lyn Freind
In January 2009 while holidaying in Busselton, Western Australia Geoff
was prompted by God to start writing the stories that had impacted his life and ministry. His first book “Enjoy the Journey” has become a best seller and has raised more than $100,000.00 to support The Salvation Army Chikankata hospital in Zambia and The Salvation Army Howard hospital in Zimbabwe. His second book, “A Great Journey” has also impacted thousands of readers and continues to impact around the world.
Geoff has recently published his new book which he has called “Thank
you for the Journey” and this book will definitely become a best seller.
God’s anointing is on Geoff’s ministry and in his new book he writes about his amazing journey to Zambia when he went to work at the Chikankata Hospital in Zambia.
Hundreds of people around the world have been impacted by Geoff’s
books and many have come to faith in Jesus Christ. Geoff will share some of these amazing stories when he delivers a powerful message of how God has blessed his ministry.
The first time I met Major Geoff Freind, I came to see that he is a true man of God and his messages were a must hear for anyone who wanted to be an agent of change and bring revival into their own personal life. Listening to him speak gave me the enthusiasm to want to read his books and as you read page after page from his inspiring books they become a great stimulus to help you to move from where you are to where you want to be in your relationship with God. His books have brought light to hundreds of people in Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe who had lived their lives in darkness. The pages of his books have brought hope to the hopeless, encouragement to the discouraged and salvation to the lost.
Recently, I was honoured to be part of a mission team which had travelled to Zambia from Australia under the leadership of Major Freind. It was my privileged to transport the mission team from one place to another as Major Freind ministered the Good News of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to many different places in the Zambia Territory. Major Freind would speak at Lusaka, Chikankata and Livingstone. His preaching and teaching was very powerful and many souls were won to Jesus Christ. Many patients at Chikankata mission hospital were healed with the power of the Holy Spirit and broken marriages were restored. His visit brought revival to The Salvation Army in Zambia and all those people he spoke to will never be the same again.
Personally, I have been encouraged through reading his book A Great Journey which has been a great encouragement in my own journey. I really did love every bit of this book. I learnt from the pages of this book to rely on the sovereignty of God in everything that I do. I was reminded again that it is important for every believer to seek the Kingdom of God first and the rest of the things in life will follow. The chapter in this book on When God Waters the Seed, Amazing Things Happen rekindled my trust in God in a very powerful way at a time when I needed.
Sunday, (Sep 21) – Pray that God will birth into each of us a servant’s heart like that of Jesus, who came not to be served but to serve. Pray that being believers of Christ, we will know ourselves as servants of Christ, and as He served, so we will follow His example to serve God and others. Pray that recognizing that the work of the church requires every member’s effort in order for the Body of Christ to function effectively will motivate every church member to move out of his / her comfort zone, find a place to serve God, and start contributing whatever time and talents needed. Pray that our motive for serving will be love – serving willingly and eagerly out of love for Jesus and gratitude for all He’s done for us, and love for the people He has placed in our lives.
Monday, (Sept 22) – The Second Local Conference for Klang Wesley will be held tomorrow (September 23, 2014). Pray for God’s wisdom upon the District Superintendent, Rev Dr Timothy Ong as he chairs the meeting, and for journey mercies for him. Pray that all the proceedings will go smoothly. Pray for all those who were elected to serve in the LCEC next year that God’s grace, wisdom and strength will be upon them. Pray for the Lord’s hand to be upon the elections that will be held during the meeting, that all will go smoothly. Above all, pray for a spirit of love and unity to prevail, and that God will be honoured in this meeting.
Tuesday, (Sept 23) – Pray for the Nation: During the recent UPSR (Year 6) Examinations, several papers were leaked out before the students sat for the papers. Pray that those responsible will be apprehended and severely dealt with, especially if they are teachers and heads of schools as they are setting an extremely bad example to the students. Pray that parents and teachers will not resort to underhanded means to ensure their children / students get good results, but they will place honesty and integrity above getting A’s. Pray also for the children as they have to re-sit some of the subjects.
Wednesday, (Sept 24) – Pray for the Youth Service this coming Saturday (September 27, 2014) for God’s blessing upon all present. Pray for the worship enablers – the ushers, musicians, worship leader and co-worship leaders to serve with joy out of the fullness of their relationship with Jesus. Pray for good support from the youths, their friends, and the Boys’ & Girls’ Brigades. Pray for a strong anointing upon the speaker, Pastor Julie Khoo, that what she says will touch the hearts of the youths, and help them gain a deeper understanding of the reality of God in their lives.
Thursday, (Sept 25) – Pray for TRAC: The Second District Conference will be held in DUMC tomorrow (September 26, 2014). Pray for God’s wisdom upon Rev Dr Timothy Ong as he chairs the meeting. Pray that the representatives from the various churches in Selangor District will support this meeting, and they will encourage each other as they share about the programmes and what God is doing their respective churches.
Friday, (Sept 26) – Praise God that the Recovery Network Ministry is doing well, and for all the children who come regularly during the weekdays. Pray that God will continue to use the Recovery Network team to bless and touch the lives of the children and their parents. Pray that God will continue to provide financially for the ministry, and to give wisdom and guidance to the team members. Pray for unity of purpose for the team, and that they will continue to serve with passion and commitment. Pray that God will be glorified through this ministry, and many lives will be brought into the Kingdom of God.
Saturday, (Sept 27) – Pray for the World: Pray that God will enable the ministry of Open Doors to continue in North Korea as the situation is getting extremely difficult due to the purges the North Korean leaders are carrying out. Pray for God’s protection over the workers of Open Doors so they can continue to minister to the persecuted Christians there. Pray also for these Christians to be strong in their faith, and for the Lord’s grace, peace and comfort to be with them.
