Tuesday Night Student Gatherings
Lutheran Student Fellowship is a come-as-you-are, come-when-you-can, and leave-when-you-must group, always mindful of the demanding schedules and educational priorities of busy scholars.
Tuesday is the evening of choice for LSF to meet at the church. We commandeer the lower level fellowship area for our gathering. Typically, the evening begins around 6:00 - 6:10 p.m. with some words of welcome, praise singing, a short devotion (usually prepared and offered by one of the students who enjoys doing that sort of thing), gathering of prayer requests and dinner at no charge. Food is often planned and prepared by students, with an occasional congregation member or group stepping in to cook. Meals are festive affairs, and a much-needed break from screen world. Conversation is lively and fun! We celebrate birthdays, too.
Several times each year, an additional activity is added onto a Tuesday night, usually seasonally. We enjoy carving pumpkins around Reformation, erecting and decorating the sanctuary Christmas trees as a service project for the congregation and exchanging "gifts" at Christmas time.
Our signature bookend special meals of each academic year are served at our fall barbecue (typically the second Tuesday of the fall semester), and our farewell/graduation barbecue (planned for WSU's spring dead week). Students are treated to marinated flank steak, grilled to perfection; cheesy potatoes; salad; rolls and dessert. It is a joy to fuss over our students!
