You are invited to two student-led worship opportunities during the June RFSes!
LGBTQIA+ Service: “Re-Formed”
Sunday, June 11th at 4 p.m. CT
Monday, June 19th at 4 p.m. CT
Both of these services will meet at the Luther Seminary sign on Como Ave (across from St. Anthony Park Lutheran) and will involve various creative worship activities at different stations on campus, ending with a time for fellowship at Station 280 (2554 Como Ave). These services have been planned and organized by the RIC Advocates Committee and will be live-streamed on the RIC Advocates Facebook page.
All are welcome! Hope to see you there!
This summer, the library student workers would love to hear about any book recommendations you might have. We will put up a display of all book recommendations we receive at the library.
We invite you to (i) take a ‘shelfie’ – a photo of yourself and the cover of the book you recommend; (ii) tell us why you love this book- just a sentence or two!; and finally, (iii) send your photo to 952-297-9932 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome book recommendations without photos too, if you prefer not to take a shelfie. Any subject or genre is welcome – from theology to murder mystery to poetry!
We would like to set up the display in time for the Summer Residential Focus Session. We hope you can send in your book recommendations by June 12.
Here is a sample of a shelfie https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bL2vNqzfa8Hi_eslRe6uP1X2dhB8NKl5/view?usp=sharing
Let’s start our summer intensives off the right way!
Join the Community Life Fellows, as well as your favorite colleagues, staff, and faculty for an evening of fun and fellowship. Food, beer, wine, and sparkling water will be provided. Challenge your friends in a rousing game of cornhole (bags, whatever you call it), or bring a yard game of your own! We can’t wait to see you there!
When: June 12
Location: OCC Patio

On April 8, 1923, four Norwegian-American missionaries from the Midwest and Brooklyn first set foot in Douala, Cameroon. Luther Seminary had a major role to play in the mission they established. Today, 100 years later, the two Lutheran World Federation churches that resulted, in Central African Republic and Cameroon, number upwards of a half million members. Bishop Eaton of the USA and Bishop Baïguele of Cameroon will be present here on July 8th for the centennial celebration. Online registration for the event is happening at sdsynod.org/synod-events/missioncentennial2023/.
