During the summer, Camp Wapo in Amery, Wisconsin, has boat-in worships on the lake every Sunday, May 29-August 28. At these worships, the camp looks for guest preachers to come in and give a sermon. They also can lead as much or as little of the rest of the services as they would like. They do have someone presiding communion each week, so volunteers do not have to be ordained pastors.
This could be a great way for Luther Seminary students to get some more sermons under their belt during the summer. The camp offers every volunteer the chance to stay at camp for free over the weekend they are preaching.
Interested? Sign up online.
Someone from Camp Wapo will follow-up as we get closer to summer.

To help with phishing awareness we’ve made a cybersecurity training course available to students in Moodle (it will be on the main course dashboard). I invite students to go through this short course and take the quiz at the end.
Everyone who has a login to the Luther Seminary network has a role to play to keep our digital campus secure. Phishers are not always interested in you or your information. They’re often interested in using your login and email account to phish other people at the seminary who have access to valuable personal information.
Completing the course earns you badge in Moodle. At 3 p.m. May 27 we’ll give one random person who earned the badge a set of Apple Airpods. Winner will be notified by email.
