About the Wesley

Why we are.

The Wesley is United Methodist community of UMD students, who gather as a community in belief that God’s Spirit is at work inspiring, renewing and uniting lives to heal the world; we believe that any person can encounter the welcome God extends to all persons.

What we do.

This community is committed to welcoming one another with acceptance, working to serve those around us and gathering together in worship with wonder and joy as well as with questions and doubts.  The Wesley stands in a long line of Methodists who have committed to radically welcoming others, to concern for the needs of others and to spiritual practices.  In turn we have discovered our selves opened to encounter God in our midst—in our lives and in the world.  As a community God empowers us to embody the healing and reconciliation God seeks for the world and that is disclosed in the life, death and resurrection of Christ.

How we do it.

This community, through The Wesley, builds relationships together at community meals like our Welcome Cook Out, on hikes like the Great Falls hike, hay ride and bonfire; serves the world by writing letters to military personnel, participating with a local church in feeding neighbors; worships on Wednesday nights with music, prayer, scripture reading and discussion about life, scripture and God.
