    TCU Wesley Foundation members said they are excited to see the impact they could have made on incoming freshmen after their first retreat this past weekend.

    Megan Davidson, campus minister for the Wesley Foundation, said “retreats are always great for community building and forming relationships.”

    “It is a time for students to get away from the business of the beginning of the semester and ground themselves spiritually for the year ahead.”

    The retreat was held Sept. 5-7 at the Riverbend Retreat Center in Glen Rose. The retreat, called “Satisfied: The Psalms Diet,” focused on finding different ways to pray. The trip was free for freshmen.

    Wesley foundation member Lucas West, who was also on the retreat’s planning committee, said that the retreat fell at a great time during the year; it was at the beginning of the semester and during a bye week for TCU Football.

    “The fall retreat is for anyone at the Wesley,” West said. “But also anyone who is a freshman looking for a fun way to spend a weekend where there’s no football game or also to get plugged into an organization.”

    Isaac Dunn, a member of the Wesley and a senior missions team member, said he was excited to devote a whole weekend to learning more about Psalms and building relationships with the incoming freshmen.

    “It usually takes a while to get to know new people, just because we only meet about once a week,” Dunn said.

    The Wesley gathers every Wednesday for dinner and a time of worship starting at 7 p.m. A group of members meets at Frog Fountain to walk over to the Wesley at 6:45 p.m.

    The TCU Wesley Foundation can be found just a short walk from campus at 2750 W. Lowden St.
