Since 1920, the ISU Wesley Foundation (Merge) has been an integral part of the lives of college students at Illinois State University and a partner in ministry with Normal First! FUMC and Merge have worked side by side to create disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Now, summer of 2018, Merge and Normal First UMC are working together to encourage growth of each faith community while inspiring one another to follow God’s call in the ministries. Through the lens of Romans 12:3-7, we will consider the vision of Merge and its on-going relationship with Normal First into the future.

In what ways are you called to be on the campus of Illinois State University?

What gifts have you been given to share and further the Kingdom of God?

It will be an honor to introduce myself and tell a little bit of my story. I can’t wait to see you this weekend.
