Our church is the main sponsor of the campus ministry at Athens State University, along with the Northwest District and the North Alabama annual conference of the United Methodist Church. Wesley was started in September, 2005. While it is a United Methodist organization, this fellowship is open to young adults of all denominations.
Activities include a weekly Bible study in the Athens State student center on Tuesdays evenings. We also have a noon Bible study on the first and third Wednesdays of each month in the President’s Dining Room.
Wesley also participates in the activities on campus sponsored by the SGA, including the Fall and Spring Carnivals. In addition, we host an annual scary movie on campus during the week of Halloween.
Road trips, baseball games, movies, and theme parties are also a big part of this fellowship. Service projects have included hosting Bingo at a local assisted living facility, working in Mobile for Habitat for Humanity, building the Habitat float for the Athens Christmas parade, adopting children for Christmas through DHR, helping with local festivals, and assisting with projects at our church.
Wesley is a great way to grow in your faith with people of your age while serving Christ in our community and having fun, too!
