Upcoming Events for Students

Coffee Break with Pastor Emily

Mondays 10am – 11:00am on Zoom

Stop in on Mondays from 10 to 11am to chat with Pastor Emily, Vicar Leif, and others from the LCM community. No agenda – just a time to connect and reflect on what’s going on on campus and around the world.

Social Justice Lunch

Tuesdays 12:30-1:15pm on Zoom

Care of Creation (April 6, 13, 20, 27)
The ELCA, our national church body, has invited us into conversation about how we, as Christians, are called to care for God’s creation by issuing a social statement that calls for its care. The statement offers a vision of God’s intention for us to care for the natural world, acknowledges human sin as the cause of the environmental crisis, and expresses many ways that are called to respond.

Faith Conversation

Thursday Nights 8:00 PM on Zoom

Mystics & Christianity (April 7 to April 29) What does Mysticism spark in you? Intrigue, confusion, scorn, excitement? While not an often discussed part of Christianity, mysticism has played and continues to play an important role in how we, as Lutherans, do theology and understand God. Mysticism asks us how we speak to God and how God speaks to us, and you may be surprised to see just how mystical your traditions already are.

Game Night

Wednesday April 14 5:00 PM on Zoom (RSVP for link)

Come and play some online party games with Lutheran Campus Ministry! We will be playing some Jackbox Games that only require a web browser (phones, tablets, or computers are perfect). We will be meeting on Wednesday April 14th from 5:00-6:00 PM. Drop in for a quick laugh after a busy day of classes! RSVP on Eventbrite to get the link.
