What students have to Say
“Wesley is important to me because it is a place where people of all kinds at all different stages of their faith can come and learn together. I feel safe as an LGBT+ person, I feel safe as someone deconstructing toxic Christianity, as someone with lots of questions, and most importantly I feel safe as me. At Wesley I am free to learn, and connect with other people like me, and I feel safe and loved and valued. Wesley feels like home to me.”
“Starting at a new school, I was nervous about finding a methodist church with other college students near campus. I had heard about Wesley and decided to attend a service. It was definitely a great decision, the community is so welcoming and kind. I have made connections with many of the members and can even call some of them my friends. I am now getting involved in the worship band and couldn’t be more excited! I keep coming back to Wesley because I truly feel like a beloved member of their community.”
Wesley has a sense of home like no other place on CMU’s campus. From worshiping during service, to communion, to the instant warmth I feel when I walk in the doors, Wesley reminds me that I am beloved by God. Sunday nights at Wesley also give me a chance to slow down from the stress of school and reconnect with the Spirit and those around me. For these reasons and many more, I will forever be grateful for the Wesley community.
