Living out Our Faith: Making Room for Relaxation, Prayer on Campus

February 02, 2010

What are congregations in the California-Nevada region of The United Methodist Church doing to live out their faith?

As United Methodist Church congregations are being called to "Rethink Church," the Wesley Foundation, Merced is leading the way. Wesley received materials and inspiration from the Rethink Church campaign to create an event on the University of California/Merced campus. Four students worked together with campus minister, the Rev. Jennifer Goto, to host a Relaxation and Prayer Room on campus the week before finals. For two evenings, December 8 and 9, 5:30-7:30, they took over a room on campus and transformed it into Holy ground.
 
Eighty students showed up at the event.
 
It's another story of how we're "Living out Our Faith in California-Nevada."
