Virtual Connections

While our regional chapters and clubs enjoy gathering in person, virtual connections are another method to connect and enjoy community together. Using a video conference call platform, our extensions of the Samford University Alumni Association can build and engage the Samford community in their cities in a virtual manner.

Samford Alumni Virtual Worship Service

These virtual worship services are designed to provide a time of coming together as an alumni family and growing closer to Christ. These events are hosted each semester. Stay tuned to the events page and emails from the Samford University Alumni Association for updates on each semester’s virtual worship service.
