Student Council Meeting Today
You are invited to come to the student council meeting today at 1 p.m. CST. Non-council members are allowed a voice but cannot vote. We would love to have you join us on Zoom—see email for link. See you there!
Do-It-Yourself Nativity and Library Holiday Open House
Please join us in the Luther Library for a holiday open house, Wednesday, December 14, from 10 a.m. to noon; there will be snacks and holiday cheer for all and sundry. As a special treat, The Luther Seminary Players will present a light-hearted retelling of the Christmas story; think of it as an homage to those church Christmas pageants of old with shepherds wearing bathrobes and angels with halos askew. This is an audience participation event so we encourage as many as are able to attend—remember, the more the merrier—the program will start around 10:45 a.m.

Matt will be aided in getting up to speed by Gerri Stepanek. As announced previously, Gerri will become the full-time controller at Augsburg. This change will be effective on January 1, 2023.
