St. Paul’s WELS Campus Ministry is now joining the University of Wisconsin–Stout. This is an organization created in hopes of bringing people together through service opportunities and strengthening the Lutheran community on campus.
The most important thing to know is that the ministry stands as a place where people can come together in faith and mutual desire to see the community flourish. Their meetings bring together a like-minded group of believers, but this is not all they do. The St. Paul’s WELS Campus Ministry also helps the community through tutoring students and cleaning up the highway.
Down home roots are important to students in the Midwest and this ministry has some of its own. This organization stems from a church called St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (WELS), which is linked to five other area churches.
“We are more than a social club with a Christian veneer. We are a gathering of people around God’s Holy Word for life and strength, and any student is welcome to attend our classes, service projects or events,” said President Matthew Emmer.
If you want to join one, the club has devotions every second and fourth Monday in the South Hall basement.
