Something to Think About…

This fall, 10 young people from our congregation will be attending college.  How will we serve them with Word and Sacrament?  What will we do to encourage them while they are away from family?  Thankfully, we don’t have to “reinvent the wheel”.  Our synod has a group called “Campus Ministry” which offers support for our young people and ideas for congregations to serve.  If you would like to find out more about this ministry and how we can serve our young people please contact Pastor Horn.
