Worship at Luther
Encouraged to Grow
Students are encouraged to continue in their faith while studying at Luther. We are a unique community in which people of many different faiths cross paths and join in dialogue, and we actively encourage engagement with questions of spirituality and faith. Growth, in the type of religiously and culturally diverse community that characterizes Luther College, is fostered in those moments of exposure to multi-faith experiences, which serve as opportunities for us to contemplate our own faith backgrounds. We hope that you encounter many of these opportunities in your time at Luther.
Luther College as a school is, by its nature, transient. Although we have a Chaplain on staff, we are not a full time worshipping community and we do not strive to become one. Finding a local community of faith is important and our Chaplain can help you find whatever community you are looking for.
Christian Worship – Tuesday Timeout – 2:30 p.m. (Offered during the Fall and Winter semesters only)
On Tuesdays from 2:30 – 3:00 p.m., we offer a Christian Worship service that is rooted in our tradition of Lutheran Word and Sacrament. Musically, we are blessed with the varied talents of students, faculty, and staff. We strive to keep the service to thirty minutes to ensure that we offer a reprieve from a busy academic and/or professional schedule, as opposed to adding to it. Following Tuesday worship, at 3:00 p.m. we have coffee and snacks in the cafeteria. This is a great opportunity to meet with the staff, faculty, and other students.
Note: Guests are always welcome and we will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable while you are with us. Please feel free to participate in whatever parts of the service you are comfortable contributing to, or simply be with us and observe. As a member of the Positive Space Network, we ask that all our guests work hard to create a spirit of inclusivity for all people.
Sunday Evening Worship at Luther Chapel
Services are held on Sundays from 7:15 - 8:15 p.m. in the Luther Chapel, which is located on the second floor of Luther College. They run from January 7 through to April 15, 2018. (Note: there will be no service on January 21, February 18, and March 25.)
Using the music of “Mountain Vespers”, we will sing, engage a different biblical text and theme each week, and encourage attendees to creatively express themselves. Board games and snacks will follow. All are welcome to attend and to approach the communion table, if they so choose.
Sunday Night Board Games at Luther – 8:15 p.m.
Join us Sunday Nights at 8:15 p.m. in the Luther Student Lounge (beside the Connection Cafe on the first floor of Luther). Different board games and snacks will be played weekly.
All are welcome.
