Love God, Love Others, Change the World

In

Facilitating and strengthening connections within Wesley through social events like Thursday Night Dinner and Game Nights

Out

Sharing God's love to those outside Wesley through Missions, Community Service, and Outreach on Campus

Up

Focusing on the spiritual growth of Wesley and building relationships with God through Small Groups, Worship, and Retreats

Fall Retreat: Back to the Basic

Wesley VBS Retreat, Location TBA

October 4-6

Register Now!

Cost is only $40*, and includes a retreat t-shirt.

Were you one those kids whose parents dragged them to Vacation Bible School each summer? Does the stress of college ever make you wish you were a child again? Do you want to spend some quality time with other Wesley folk?

If you answered yes to any of these questions (and even if you didn’t!), then Fall Retreat is for you! The theme this year is BACK TO THE BASICS. We will be (re)exploring Bible stories we all learned as kids and discovering that they’re maybe not as simple as we thought they were.

Fall retreat is a great opportunity to get to know other Wesley members while also reflecting on your own faith journey. BACK TO THE BASICS will consist of worship services, small group sessions, group activities, and plenty of FUN!

 We'll leave after class on Friday, October 4, and have you back to campus mid-afternoon on Sunday, October 6. Hope you can make it! 

Registration Deadline:  September 9/29.

*Scholarships available if needed, contact Campus Minister Ryan Spurrier.

2018 Wesley Fall Break Mission Trip

Fall Break Mission Trip

October 16-20, Eastern NC

Register Now!

Cost is only $75

Scholarships available if needed.

This Fall Break, Wesley will take our fifth hurricane relief trip to Eastern North Carolina since Hurricane Matthew (Oct. 2016).

We will again partner with the Corridor District Disaster Response Team—our faithful Christian siblings who do this work year round.

We don’t yet know where we’ll be assigned—we just ask to go where we are needed—to repair homes, restore lives, and be the presence of Jesus in the aftermath of disaster.

We'll leave campus after class on Wed. Oct. 16 and return to campus in the middle of the afternoon on Sun. Oct. 20.

No construction or flood relief background needed, just a heart ready to serve!

Registration Deadline:  October 8.

*Scholarships available if needed, contact Campus Minister Ryan Spurrier.
