Welcome to Wesley – check us out this first week of classes!
Wesley is kicking off the semester this week with several events to introduce you to the people and the place. We hope you can stop in this week to say hi and meet us but please know we aren’t a club – you can come (or come back) any time. We know schedules are busy and there are so many things to try at UVA, so come when you can and know there will be a place for you and people happy to see you.
Kicking off this week at Wesley:
THURSDAY AUGUST 27th
6 pm Kick-off Dinner (free!): Barbecue, music, and great people! Come to our first Thursday night dinner and meet some wonderful people.
8:15pm Late Night @ Wesley: Especially for those whose busy evening schedules keep them from being at dinner. There will be plenty of food and snacks left over, so come hang out!
SUNDAY AUGUST 30
11am Sunday morning Worship at Wesley Memorial Church (next door): Campus Minister Deborah Lewis will be preaching here this morning, too, talking about God’s desire for us to know “Delight.”
12 noon at the church (next door): Welcome Picnic for all students. Free food and a great time to meet church members and Wesley Foundation students.
5 pm Sunday night Worship: The first worship of the year! Campus minister Deborah Lewis will give a short message to help get you ready for the semester ahead and there will be fantastic music and Communion. Tonight we begin a 5-week sermon series on “The Most Important Things to Learn about Faith/Life/God while in College” – tonight’s sermon is called “If God is anywhere, God is everywhere.”
Wesley: A place to be and become
College will change you. So will being involved with Wesley. Together we learn, eat, travel, serve, and have a lot of fun. We don’t expect to have all the answers but we do expect God to show up at college. We haven’t been disappointed yet.
We hope you’ll join us, this week or whenever you can. The best ways to get started in any given week are Thursday night dinner and forum (6pm) and Sunday night worship (5pm). Come on your own or bring along a friend. There is always a place for you at Wesley!
