USA Wesley Foundation Students Return to Campus

The University of South Alabama Wesley Foundation is looking for volunteers to provide dinner for Tuesday Night Worship. Each Tuesday we have dinner, worship and a lesson for our students. Dinner starts at 6 PM every Tuesday before worship, so food should be brought at 5:30. You may choose to make the food, you may buy something from the store, or you may order catering. All have been done in the past by different churches and organizations. Whatever food you want to bring is up to you; we’re grateful for it all! Sometimes people bring dessert as well but we have our own utensils and plates. We usually need food for about 30-40 people.Click here to find a list of all the available Tuesday nights for this school year.

Thank you so much for your interest in helping us serve our students!  If you have questions please contact Loren Pierce at or call 251-341-5184.
