Ecclesia - This Saturday (12/2), from 3-5 we'll be gathering at Wesley to learn some more about God and share in a time of conversation and worship centered around (everyone's favorite:) fear and anxiety!
209 Manna Ministries Food Pantry - Our pantry is open to all VT students during the week and is staffed by Wesley students on Thursday from 4-6:30pm. We would love your help keeping up this ministry!

Fun 143 - This is a mission led by Wesley where we hang out with the middle and high school students who live at the local trailer park, Blacksburg Estates. We meet on Monday and Thursday nights and provide the kids with dinner, homework help, and resources such as school supplies and laptops. If you are interested, contact Sarah Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org). Sign up here! You can also help by providing dinner even if you can't attend tutoring! Go to takethemameal.com and use last name: UMC, password F143.
Spring Break - Our team has identified some really great options for trips this spring, talk to anyone on the team to learn more and give your input!
Wishbox - Look out for more details about our end of semester outreach event. We'll be requesting wishes from people around campus for themselves, our school, or the world and then praying over them during the reading day prayer vigil!
Gift Shopping - need a little encouragement, or a ride to shop for Christmas gifts? Meet at Wesley at 5:30 this Wednesday to head out together and look for white elephant gifts for the Christmas party on Friday.
Christmas Parade + Party - We're leaving Wesley at 6:50pm on Friday to see the holiday parade downtown! Come see the festivities and hang out afterward to decorate Wesley, drink cider, make Christmas cookies, and exchange gifts
