LCMS U Campus Ministry at the University of Oklahoma Registration and Upcoming Events
August 6, 2020, 9:00 AM

Trinity Lutheran Church, Norman, is gearing up for another year of Campus Ministry to the students at the University of Oklahoma. Vicar Jordan Peiser, from the Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, will be working with Pastor David Nehrenz this year at Trinity Lutheran and LCMS U at OU. As in the past, Trinity will be reaching out to students at OU and inviting them to participate in the worship, Bible study, and fellowship life of the congregation. LCMS U offers many activities specifically oriented toward the students including dinner parties, picnics, retreats and service projects. We are also reaching out to the international student community. We have ordered small catechisms and other resources in various languages (Chinese, Japanese, Arabic) and are also planning activities for the ESL – English as a Second Language group.

Trinity looks forward to the opportunity to assist congregations in your task of shepherding those members of your congregation who will be attending OU in the coming year. To that end we will need your help in locating OU students who have come, or will come from your congregation. We have provided a Google link, which you or a parent can use to enter a student’s name and information. It can be found here: https://goo.gl/forms/LWYouGA1sifAWRIm2

We ask that you post this link on your church’s website and send it to all your families who have students at OU this year. Fill in the student information and it will come directly to us in Norman. We will contact each student and invite them to all of our campus ministry activities. 2. If you do not have a Google account, fill out the OU Student information attachment and e-mail it to the vicar at: tlcnormanvicar@gmail.com 3. Also print out the Bulletin Insert (two-sided) and the Posterbelow and place in your Church Bulletin and on a Bulletin Board this month. It details the events of the LCMS U at OU Campus Ministry. Thank you for your time and assistance in helping us to continue to minister to those of your flock and also for your financial support, via the Oklahoma District. Please remember this ministry in your congregational, as well as in your own personal prayers. We also encourage you, as the home pastor and congregation, to keep in regular, direct contact with your student members (via email, phone calls, letters, cards, care packages, etc), checking up on them and encouraging them to attend our activities and the Divine Service at Trinity. If there is anything that we can do for you or your students during this academic year, please do not hesitate to contact us.

May the God of grace and mercy bless your labors in His vineyard!
