A Classen File

These were among some donated images to Wesley by Anton H. Classen's sister Anna Sophia Classen Wahl and her daughters, Mrs. Pauline Wahl McBride, Mrs. Frances Wahl McAlister, and Mrs. Lydia Wahl Rhodes, all  members of Wesley. "Aunt Ella" was the former Ella Dell LAMB who married Classen in 1903.

Become a Friend of Wesley

A special "Friends of Wesley" group is made of individuals, organizations, and businesses who wish to support the historic preservation of the century old and historically significant Wesley Methodist Church (Wesley United Methodist Church) founded in 1910.

The inspiring windows dating to 1928 honored people significant to local Oklahoma City history but also to the history of Oklahoma Methodism.

The church founding and development was guided by lay people who were leaders in Oklahoma City development in real estate, banking, business, and education.

It stands as a rare remaining example of Methodist Churches in the English Gothic style and as work by a significant early architectural firm.

Donations may be sent to:
