Wesley is a campus ministry of The United Methodist Church. We provide an alternative community for students to hang out, to study, to explore their spirituality, to ask questions, to serve God and others, to belong.
We live out our friend-mission in service to others. Our student-led teams lead the community in reaching out through opportunities such as blood drives, canned food drives, Relay for Life, Habitat for Humanity, etc and through "sweat equity" serving at Wesley.
Wesley Night is every Tuesday...
Wesley Night is every Tuesday (during the school year). We generally feature community building events at 7:30, such as trivia, game nights, small group activities, etc followed by something great to eat 9:00 with worship beginning at 9:30.
There's always room on a Wesley Intramural team...
Softball, football, soccer, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, bowling, dodgeball, beach volleyball...
...come play with us!
We are highly involved on campus...
Wesley promotes involvement on campus, and we strive to be as active as any other student organization. Our students are often leaders on campus. One big thing for us is Homecoming, and we go all out every year to make a great Homecoming banner!
Ok, sometimes it's a little cray...
There's times to be serious and there's time to be fun. We don't want to be a stodgy little church club but a place of exuberance and joy.
There's always something great to eat around Wesley...
There's always something to eat around Wesley, and every Wesley Night we serve a meal of some sort (Tuesdays at 9). Sometimes our students cook, sometimes it's pizza, but other times our students are blessed by some moms and churches bringing food by.
Radical Grace and Acceptance
Our friend-mission is about radical grace and acceptance...
Our friend-mission is about radical grace and acceptance. We feel that a life that is actively seeking God is a life that is outwardly focused, open towards others, resisting judgmental and prejudiced attitudes, embracing daily transformation and change.
A Friend Mission
As Jesus said, "You are my friends..."
As Jesus said to his disciples, "I no longer call you servants...but friends," so we accept the call to lift up others as friends. This is more than hanging out, it's a purposeful process of investing ourselves in others, of intentionally reaching out to make a difference in their lives and make real the grace of God in our lives.
