One of the most challenging times in the lives of Christian families is sending their children off to a secular college or university. Not only are these college students learning how to live away from home, but they are also facing numerous challenges that take them outside of their “comfort zones”.
Help them stay grounded and connected to God’s Word for comfort and reassurance! Please share the following LCMS Campus Ministry locations in Wisconsin with the parents in your congregation, or ask them to share their child’s contact information while away from home with one of the campus ministries listed below. As an additional encouragement to the college students and their parents, you may want to use the bulletin insert from LCMS that invites the names and campus locations of those wishing to get connected to the closest LCMS congregation to their school, wherever that may be. Campus Ministries form.
Here is another resource that may be helpful: LCMS Campus Ministry Information Sheet, as well as a link to the LCMS Campus Ministry website. Or call the District Missions office at 414-292-0744.
