Update: March 25, 2020
You don’t have to look very far to find news of events being cancelled and venues closed for a period of time due to COVID-19.
A number of people have contacted us to ask if we’re still moving forward with the 2020 AFHE Graduation. We are pleased to report that …
Yes! Graduation is still on!
We are optimistic we’ll be able to move forward as planned. Our hope and prayer is that the spread of the coronavirus will taper off significantly with all of the precautions that are being taken across the nation and world right now.
There is no indication so far that a cancellation will be necessary for our event in May. We have been in regular contact with our event manager at Dream City Church and we are monitoring updates from health authorities. We will keep you posted on any new information we receive.
The church let us know that they had to cancel a couple of events because they fell during the first week of social distancing, but other than that, things look good for our event at the end of May. During this time, they remain proactive in additional cleaning and disinfecting of the church building.
The AFHE Graduation team is hard at work preparing this special evening for the participating Arizona homeschool graduates and their family and friends to celebrate on Friday, May 22. We know that God is working on our behalf and He will lead us with His wisdom and discernment.
The safety and well-being of our community is of utmost importance to us. Our team strives to operate with wisdom in all of our planning. We are praying diligently over our upcoming events and each of the decisions we face.
We will continue monitoring information from health authorities and will keep everyone updated if there are any changes.
How can you help?
- Pray for families – for health and safety.
- Pray for abundant peace to the hearts and minds of each person in this season where confusion and fear could easily take root.
- Pray for the AFHE board and graduation team members, that we would be wise in our decisions and have clarity, understanding, and discernment as we continue serving our community well!
- Also, pray for the many families who may find themselves suddenly and unexpectedly overseeing their children’s education at home during this time. We are working hard to answer their questions and provide helpful information as they contact our organization.
