The Southeastern Minnesota Synod includes two campus ministries and one student congregation. The campus ministries are Crossroads Campus Ministry in Mankato and the Lutheran Campus Center in Winona. The student congregation is St. Olaf College Student Congregation in Northfield. We give thanks for these ministries among us and the many ways they accompany young adults.

On October 23, 2016, all congregations are invited to celebrate Campus Ministry Sunday! As a synod, it is important that we come together to collectively honor and support the ways the Holy Spirit is at work on the college campuses within our synod.

There are a variety of ways you can incorporate Campus Ministry Sunday into the life of your congregation on October 23. Rev. Corrine Haulotte (Winona) and Rev. Tammy Dahlvang (Mankato) have put together a variety of resources including prayers, Bible readings, and hymn recommendations. They are available on our synod website at http://semnsynod.org/campusministry.

Our campus ministry connections in Mankato, Winona, and Northfield are places of welcome and acceptance for college students. Rev. Haulotte shares, “The Spirit is at work here…people are hearing on campus and in the community that we’re a welcoming group, and they are starting to come and see!”

The people of the Southeastern Minnesota Synod have a wonderful opportunity to support the good work the Spirit is doing through campus ministries in our synod. Please make a commitment to uplift Campus Ministry Sunday on October 23!

God of grace and glory, you have created all people in your image and call us to love one another. We praise your name for your servants in Crossroads Campus Ministry, the Lutheran Campus Center, and the St. Olaf Student Congregation. We give thanks for all those who make known the good news of Christ Jesus on college campuses in our synod. Sustain these ministries with your grace so that they might continue to share your love in all they say and do. In your holy and precious name we pray, Amen.
