The Wesley Foundation
The Missions Ministry Team has designated EIU Wesley Foundation as our August Missions Project. EIU Wesley Foundation’s vision states, “We believe that God’s grace and love are for all people and that God calls us to be faithful.” During these ever-changing times, the Wesley Foundation has continued to be in ministry with and for students.
We hold weekly programming throughout the school year, with free supper and events on Sunday evenings and worship and conversation on Wednesday nights, in addition to other outings, fun gatherings, and service activities. EIU Wesley Foundation is a campus ministry of the Illinois Great Rivers Conference, and Wesley Church has a long history of supporting this important ministry. Your donations help support programs for students and ongoing operating expenses. Your support in the past has helped enable care packages and gift cards for students, as well as a Zoom videoconferencing membership, when meeting in person was not possible. You’ve helped fund small group studies that promote spiritual growth and well-being, trips to the Great Pumpkin Patch, student retreats, and student participants in the Midwest Student Movement Student Gathering, a two-day online gathering of students from across the North Central Jurisdiction.
The Wesley Foundation’s ministry to EIU and Lake Land College students continues because you value the spiritual growth of and care for these students. If you would like to help support the work Wesley Foundation does, please make your check out to Wesley UMC with Wesley Foundation on the memo line and mail it, use the blue mission envelope in the pew rack, bring it to the church, or visit our website at charlestonwesley.org and click on the $ button at the bottom of the page. Thank you very much for your support.
