Activities for Spring Term 2009:

Recurring Events:
 University EVENSONG, Sundays 7-7:45 pm, resumes 3/29/09. This is the weekly worship created for and led by students. Meets in the sanctuary of Grace Lutheran Church (corner of Kings and Harrison). Includes music, prayer, relevant preaching and communion. Come as you are; it's casual, it's thoughtful. Get your week started right. Seekers and questioners are always welcome. No experience necessary.  The Winter Term theme is "Wild Wonderment."  The Winter Term offering is called "Can You Dig It?", an ingathering of money to support the building of wells and providing clean water for those in Africa who don't have access to this basic necessity. Let's see if we can fill water bottles with spare change in order to make a big difference for people who need fresh, clean drinking water.

Come-and-Go Lunch, every Tuesday 11:30-1:30, resumes 3/31/09. A home-cooked meal served family style in the Luther House dining room every week. No program, just good food and conversation. A vegetarian option is always available. Only $2.

   QUEST, every Thursday, 5:30-7:30 pm, resumes 4/2/09. Imagine a simple supper, good friends, big questions, rich discussions on topics of interest to all. That's QUEST. It's free and guests are welcome.
