Updated March 29, 2020
Hello everyone! We know that it has been difficult acclimating to the chaos of the current global situation involving COVID-19. The University of South Alabama has transitioned classes online and campus events have been canceled or postponed for the rest of Spring Semester 2020, including commencement. Several students are moving back home. Over Spring Break we carefully considered guidelines advised by the CDC and WHO and how these might affect students. To best care for our students and follow appropriate health recommendations, we have come to a decision that we believe best ensures the safety of you and our staff. Therefore, it is with respect to the University and your best interest that we must cancel all events beginning March 16th until the end of the school year. You can find all new communication, messages, sermons, blog posts and more on our "Events" Page. We will finish out the end of the year online. We are heartbroken for all students but we encourage you to put your faith in the Lord and stay connected to each other online!
MESSAGE FROM OUR CAMPUS MINISTER
I am sad to state that all of our events and meetings for the rest of the spring semester are canceled. We have plans to post our normal Tuesday night message on Facebook, Instagram, and post a link in the GroupMe. Along with that, we will also have a blog that students will be contributing on Thursdays. This is simply another way that we can all reach out to each other in this difficult and quarantined time.
The Wesley Foundation building will be shut down for the length of the hiatus from school as well. However, please feel free to reach out if you need anything.
Times like these make me think of the book of Joshua. After Moses died, Joshua was given command of all of Israel. Before he took command though, the LORD spoke to Joshua, "As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Joshua 1:5b).
We are not left alone, though it may feel that way as we adjust to this new arrangement. Feel free to reach out for any reason to myself or Loren. The Wesley Foundation is still here to serve you and create ways for you to worship God.
Campus Minister, Executive Director of the South Alabama Wesley Foundation
