Reinhardt University, Waleska United Methodist Church Statement
WALESKA, GA (April 19, 2019) – Reinhardt University and Waleska United Methodist Church have mutually agreed on an expense sharing plan for Hagan Chapel, and vow to work cooperatively to build a relevant partnership in support of the community of students, faculty, staff and residents of Waleska.
Together, the university and the church mourn the breakdown in our relationship and have pledged to work for a full reconciliation between our communities in order to demonstrate the way of Christ, which is to love and serve each other.
We invite the community of faith known as Waleska United Methodist Church and the educational community of Reinhardt University to renew their commitment to cultivate the fruit of spirit of Christ: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)
