|Take advantage of this great opportunity to help youth in grades 5-8 wrestle with some of the challenges that our culture is throwing at them. This event is an especially good opportunity for confirmation classes to grow together. With all of this in mind, please encourage youth in your congregations and youth you know to save the date and to attend the Servants of Christ Seminar at Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW). The Servants of Christ Seminar will ground youth in the grace of their baptism, teach them about the doctrine of vocation, give them information about college and careers, and allow them to take part in breakaway sessions led by CUW professors and other guest speakers. These sessions are designed to strengthen their faith and help them to live as servants of Christ in our challenging world. The Servants of Christ Seminar is for all students in grades 5-8, and it will take place on September 28th from 9:30 AM to 2 PM on our Mequon campus. This event is free. Lunch will be provided at no cost. Registration opens July 1st.
We encourage you to identify advocates who will urge youth to attend and plan rides for youth. Adult chaperones are welcome to attend all sessions and to eat with us at no cost. Adults are also free to drop kids off at 9:30 AM and pick them up at 2 PM.
Please visit and encourage youth to visit this link for more information and for a sample schedule and sample breakaway sessions from this event last year: www.cuw.edu/ServantsofChristSeminar
More information will be sent soon.

A Place of Refuge, an LCMS RSO and the official pro-life ministry of the South Wisconsin District, is a Crisis Pregnancy Advocacy Service and Shelter serving South Wisconsin and beyond. When mothers call or text our hotline, 414-476-6333, they are assigned a volunteer advocate who works with them throughout their pregnancy and beyond…helping them find area resources and sharing resources collected by our congregations and friends. REFUGE HOUSE, a shelter where women and children can stay during a woman’s pregnancy and up to 9 mos. afterward, provides even more intensive care. At REFUGE HOUSE, the needs of the women and children we serve are taken care of so that they can complete their educations, find employment and prepare to provide for the needs of their families with the help of the many programs we offer both inside and outside of the home.
