New Students include Transfers and First-Years. First Year Ministries offer several things focused on students who are off to college for the first time. It doesn't matter if you are classified as a freshman, sophomore, or junior. Click on any of the buttons below for more information or to sign up for an event!
Take a look!
First Year Community Group
This is a first-year only Bible study. It meets for dinner at 5 pm on Thursdays at Wesley to eat in the Student Center then walks back over to Wesley for Bible study at 6 pm. This is a topical Bible study and the topics are chosen specifically for things that affect your daily life.
First-Year Planning Team
First-Year Planning Team (FPT) meets once a week for an hour on Wednesdays after our weekly worship service. FPT helps plan various events and worship services throughout the year. If you are looking for a place to build leadership skills, then FPT is the perfect place to start.
When we say Wesley could run without Tom or Ben we are not joking. Wesley is largely run by students that sit on our council. Council elections are in the spring but we want new students to have the opportunity to become leaders in Wesley, so assistant chair positions are reserved for first-years and transfers each fall.
A=Axes (of course)
X=Christian (symbol for the Greek letter 'Chi')
E=Expections of/for/in college
So, is this "What do we expect from Christians with axes?" Not exactly, but it's a way to learn how to thrive in college academically and spiritually.
If you are moving in between Friday, August 25th to Sunday, August 27th, let us know and we will get a small group to come help. After you sign up, we will be in touch to see how we can best help make your move-in full of rainbows, unicorns, and fully-paid scholarships (or we can at least carry a few of your bags)!
