MTSU Wesley is celebrating in and for its new worship space! The last two years MTSU Wesley has been outgrowing its makeshift worship spaces. With the incredible help of Blackman United Methodist Men, Blackman Youth Group, St. Mark’s Men, and our students, we have remodeled our building to create an amazing worship space. We are so excited for the room to grow in number and depth as we encounter Christ each Tuesday night at 7:30 pm.
Last May, a student lead team from MTSU Wesley, Cumberland Wesley, and Auburn Wesley went to Puerto Rico for a week. There we helped with the continued recovery from Hurricane Maria. We helped clean up debris, worked on damaged homes, built structures, put on roofs, and set up their project for future teams. A highlight of the trip was the incredible Puerto Rican hospitality our ability to offer Christ to those we were around. What a glory sighting to see students discern, create, raise funds for, and live out a tremendous mission opportunity.
Human Mario Kart. Yes, Human Mario Kart. HMK was a new welcome week event designed and lead by the Fellowship Coordinators at MTSU Wesley. Students had fun at the end of the second week of classes by racing in shopping carts while through water balloons, food, and silly string at each other. It was a hot, sweaty, but incredibly fun time to connect with other students.
The MTSU Student Leadership Team went on its August leadership retreat to Lake Wheeler. Once, there they worshipped, finished planning for the semester, set goals, took sabbath, and ate, and ate, and ate (thanks Butler and Martha Touchton from St. Marks UMC). This team leads the programming and life of the ministry. They are servant leaders who are developing their spiritual maturity and sharpening their skills. The MTSU Wesley emphasizes the vibrant servant leadership through Wesley, internships at local churches, and in other partner ministries.
