West End UMC is partnering again this summer with the non-profit, Project Transformation Tennessee. Project Transformation is a United Methodist affiliated ministry that provides leadership development and ministry exploration opportunities to college-age young adults. Working with churches in low-income neighborhoods in Middle Tennessee, these emerging leaders coordinate community-oriented programs for underserved children and youth. In the process, Project Transformation connects site churches with their neighborhood and unites partner churches in mission.
There are many opportunities for you to be involved:
- Read with Children – PT mobilizes volunteers to read with children throughout the summer program. Our reading week will Monday – Thursday, June 13 – 16, from 9:15 a.m. – 12 p.m. Each day, we will provide 10 volunteers to read with children one-on-one at Ebenezer UMC. Ages 13 and up are encouraged to volunteer.
- Provide a meal – 24 college students from across the country are living and working together as they lead the programming at each site and explore and develop their ministry and leadership skills. We will provide dinner for the interns on June 12 and 14 at the Commons at Belmont University at 5:40 p.m.
- Pray - We invite you to pray that God’s transforming love is reflected in Project Transformation Tennessee’s efforts. Please, pray for the interns and site churches, as well as the children volunteers, and neighborhoods that will be served.
