We hope you are enjoying your first week of classes in this new semester!
Tomorrow, Friday, January 18 at 4 p.m., our International Student Ministry will hold its first Conversation Café of the new semester. There will be conversation, maybe some board games and of course, refreshments! It’s a great time to interact with students from all over the world whom God has brought to our doorstep. What an opportunity we have to show the God’s love, through hospitality and friendship. That’s what international student ministry is all about. Hope you can join us!
As Lutherans for life, we will observe Sanctity of Life Sunday at the Chapel this weekend. Worship with Holy Communion begins at 9:30 a.m. Pastor’s text is John 10:10, with the theme “The Fact of Life.” Following our worship time, Aaron Littmann, CEO of Lutheran Outdoor Ministry of Texas and class of 2012, will briefly share about his ministry and inform you of opportunities to work at a Lutheran camp in the United States this summer. He will be available for interviews both Sunday afternoon and Monday at the Chapel. Following Aaron, we will have brunch and our first LSF meeting of the new semester. At around 11:15 or so, Pastor Hoemann resumes his Bible study on I Corinthians. This week it’s chapter 10.
