Rev. Shelley Nelson-Bridger
Welcome to UPCaM!
Every year UPCaM is a new community gifted by the diversity
of all our experiences. Whenever we gather, wherever we gather ... on the Quad, in the Student Union, in the Campus District, all around the CLE, we are God's community centered in Jesus. Our welcome is just like Jesus's welcome -- radical, inclusive, challenging.
When we dive into Bible study, reflection, debate, worship, and service, I pray our differences strengthen this community as we learn from one another. Each person's perspective, theology (thoughts about God), worship style, musical taste, and talents are WELCOME and VALUED. In sharing and learning together, we will reflect God's deep love for our whole world.
Our welcome is a radical Jesus-welcome for every sibling no matter one's faith practice, heritage, nationality, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. God's arms open wide through the love of Jesus to embrace us all, and this is UPCaM!
Today, UPCaM is privileged to serve three colleges of Cleveland: Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University and Tri-C Metro Campus. I look forward to meeting you on campus!
If you're searching for place to invest in, let's talk. When we talk, I look forward to learning about you. Here are five things about me.
With Peace, Shelley
