Apologetixs advertisement

Did you know that many of our “traditional hymns” written by John and Charles Wesley, weren’t so “traditional” in their day.  They actually took the tunes of bar tunes (don’t believe us… check the instructions for singing in the front of your hymnals!) and changed the words to become Christian hymns.  In other words, the notes were familiar and the words were new.  John and Charles used “pop culture” of their day to promote sacred singing.  Well, there’s  a modern variation on such a practice, and Apologetix does it.  They call themselves a parody band, we’d say they’re old fashioned Methodists!  Come join us for a wonderful (and comical) Apologetix concert Saturday November 6th at 7:00pm at Wesley UMC in Riverside.  It’s $10 presale and $15 at the door.  Tickets can be ordered by calling 951-966-6161 or by emailing .  Or they can be ordered online at:
