Cell phone numbers become public this month and will be released to telemarketing companies, so you will likely begin to receive more solicitation calls. To prevent this call the following number FROM YOUR CELL PHONE: 1-888-382-1222. This number is the national DO NOT CALL LIST and only takes a moment of your time. It blocks your number for five years, but the call must be made from your cell phone. FUMC FUN FACTS Wesley Center’s cornerstone was laid in 1955.
