A great way to get connected at ISU Wesley and make new friends is through our weekly small groups. We are excited to create new groups for the 2018 Fall Semester, but until then, check out our small groups from last semester:
2018 Spring Semester Small Groups
Questions to All Your Answers: Dive deep into the vastness of Christianity’s theological spectrum! Each week we will examine a specific theological perspective and explore it from all angles. Providing a place to ask difficult questions, doubt and wrestle with your beliefs, and reexamine what you believe, “Questions to All Your Answers” will assist you in deepening your knowledge about life and faith, as well as strengthen your relationship with the Divine. We meet Mondays at 7 PM.
The Last Lecture: What will you impart on the world? How will you be remembered? Randy Pauch, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University, discovered he had pancreatic cancer amidst his teaching career. While professors typically give a final lecture that reviews class content and how it can relate to other courses, Pauch aims to teach us how to live. This book study will meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM, and will challenge how we can purposefully live to impact others and ourselves.
Freshman Small Group: Are you a freshman? Do you want to feel more connected to ISU Wesley? Freshman small group provides an opportunity for freshmen who are experiencing transition to come together in community and talk about the things they are experiencing. This group is fun, topical, and a support system during your first year of college! We meet Tuesdays at 7 PM.
Red Letter Christianity: In Red Letter Christianity, we will be looking at the question “What if Jesus really meant what he said?” We will explore various teachings and stories from the life and ministry of Jesus and discussing what the Historical/Biblical context was at that time, what we believe Jesus was saying in those moments, and how we can live that out in our world today. We meet Thursdays at 6:30 PM.
Messy Spirituality: Do you feel like you aren’t a good Christian? Do you feel like your life is a mess, full of fear and anxiety? We’ll read through Pastor Mike Yaconelli’s book “Messy Spirituality,” in which he talks about his “messy” life and how being the “perfect Christian” may look different from what you think. We will utilize a Facebook group to conduct all our discussions online.
