Students value ministry at TU
Gloria Hrncir is a junior at TU, majoring in sociology. Sophomore Aaron Goree studies computer science.
“In all the time I have been at Wesley, I have thought it to be a place for a diverse group of students who welcome others as they are,” Gloria said. “TU Wesley is a place where people, who might not necessarily have been friends before, become friends here because of Christ.”
She listed some of the Wesley activities she enjoys — karaoke nights, worship, jungle pong, Bible studies, trivia nights, and more — at the place she’s found “Christian community.”
Aaron said, “I was drawn in by the weekly activities my first semester, like Friday Noon Lunch and C.S. Lewis Reading Group.”
He noted, “Reaching out to the whole campus is important so that we can share what God has given us. ... Worship connects us with God through Bible study, music, and prayer. Games Night brings people together to enjoy some hilarious moments while building trust and friendship. I am thankful to have these experiences at the Wesley!”
Gloria’s family is active at Tulsa-First UMC, and Aaron is from Edmond, said the Wesley’s director, Ron Gentry.
