Our college chaplains and Wesley Foundation directors had a busy week last week as students moved in and classes started. If you have students from your church or town who are United Methodist or are looking for a place of faith and acceptance, please let the chaplain/directors know.
On freshman move-in day at Morningside University, there was a "Family Blessing & Sending" service to name God's promises and presence as families get ready to say goodbye.
