The great thing about being a campus ministry that is sponsored by a congregation like University Lutheran Church is that we have the opportunity to worship together on Sunday mornings. Usually during the year, students fill the front 2-3 rows of pews at the 11:00 a.m. service throughout the year. This Fall, though, the congregation is still only worshipping virtually.
We thought it would be important to provide a worship opportunity for the students. And we thought it would be fun to get creative with it. We have so many students who have been or are still involved in camp ministry and are used to a casual, outdoor worship experience.
So we've tried to form something like that with some guitar music, time for prayer, and a weekly reflection. We enjoyed meeting on Bowman Field on campus, and we'll likely try a few other outdoor spots within walking distance from church. It's been a refreshing way to connect with God and with each other!
