Wesley House

Wesley House is the College Ministry of Highland Park United Methodist Church: We're here for you, literally.

HPUMC is located on the southwest corner of SMU campus at Hillcrest and Mockingbird and the Wesley House is on the north side of campus on Daniel. 

Wesley House is your place. It is your place to find community, to connect with others, and to call home during these transformative years. We are the college ministry of Highland Park United Methodist Church. We are for all college age people. Wesley House is the college ministry of Highland Park United Methodist Church and is for all 18 to 22-year-olds looking for a place to connect and grow with others in their same stage of life. Wesley House is a place for college students where community is developed, questions are discussed, faith is deepened, and purpose is discovered. We want to help you navigate life and faith through Bible studies, small groups, worship, and missions, connecting you to the larger body of HPUMC. We have what you are looking for. Welcome home.

WESLEY HOUSE:

The physical building known as the Wesley House is located at 3220 Daniel Ave behind Fondren Science on the north side of campus.  It is open almost all the time.  Come by to hangout, study, meet for special Bible studies and small groups.  

WESLEY SCHOOL YEAR ACTIVITIES:

Wesley Hour - Mondays at 4pm at Wesley House

Wesley Hour is Wesley Happy Hour…but free.  Come to the house for food and drink to get you through Monday.  Sometimes it’s homemade quesadillas and fresh made cherry limeades and other times it’s homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk.  

 

The Table - Tuesdays at 7:30pm at Tolleson Family Activity Center at HPUMC
We worship together.  We study the Bible together. We pray with one another. We share life together. Tuesday nights are college night at Tolleson.  Come at 5pm to hangout, play basketball, study, play video games, or whatever else you want to do.  We’ll meet for our time together at 7:30 in the worship area on the 3rd floor.  Tuesdays at 7:30pm is the best time to connect with Wesley and others.  

Lunch on the Lawn - Thursdays from 11am until 1pm on Dallas Hall Lawn at SMU
A time for students to bring lunch or eat from the food trucks usually out on Thursdays while hanging out with other Wesley people. If it’s raining we’ll meet at Wesley House.  3220 Daniel Ave.

We have so many ways to worship on Saturday night or Sunday morning at Highland Park United Methodist Church. Find times here www.hpumc.org.

Wesley Mobile House Meet-Up - Sundays at 10:30am at HPUMC
HPUMC is a big building with lots of doors and plenty of options of where to worship. Meet up with other college-age people at the Wesley Mobile House before or after worship on Sunday mornings. Grab some coffee, donuts, connect with others and find your church crew. We meet in Room 345, on the 3rd floor of HPUMC.

Host Family
If you are already thinking about feeling homesick or you just want some support while you are in college, you should sign up for a Host Family. Imagine having a family near SMU who is praying for you, inviting you to join them for lunch, cooking you dinner, cheering you on, and helping you make yourself at home here in Dallas...It's a win-win.
