|ABOUT THE VILLAGE OF WALES
Although Wales has grown throughout the decades, both in residents and businesses, we still remain a quaint and humble community with a historic downtown district and budding surrounding area. The rural charm of Wales along with its excellent schools, abundance of recreational opportunities and convenient healthcare and professional services make it a true lower Lake Country destination.

||Jerusalem enjoys a rich history that began in 1842 when it was founded by Welsh-Americans. We worship in a lovely circa-1912 building that was lovingly restored to its historic beauty in the late 1990’s. Today Jerusalem is a church home to a family of faith that spans all age groups and backgrounds.
We seek to be a haven for those who are searching for an inviting and friendly place to worship, learn, and serve God. Believers are welcome, but so are sincerely seeking doubters.
At Acts 2 Church we welcome all people, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey, to join with us. We love to give to the Lord's work with our time, talents and treasures. Our efforts are focused directly on making a difference in our local community and the world in the name of Jesus Christ! Come, join us.
