Give today to Luther House and help us continue the great ministry we provide to the students of Oregon State University.
We are a Reconciling in Christ Community
No matter your economic situation, political persuasion, marital status, gender, physical ability, ethnic background, or sexual orientation – you are welcome here. "All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place!"
It takes many dedicated individuals to keep Luther House a thriving place. Meet the people behind the magic.
GRACEnotes, September 16
The annual Grace Lutheran Salmon Bake is this coming Sunday, September 21, from 12:30-3:00 at the Avery Park Thompson Shelter. Students, it’s free for you to attend but you need a ticket. I have some which I’ll bring with me to church Sunday morning, second service. You can have one or more for the asking. Take note, if you need a ride I’ll leave from the Grace parking lot Sunday about 12:20. You’re welcome to ride with me (I’ll even deliver you home afterwards).
The Luther House Football Parking fundraisers continue this Saturday as OSU meets San Diego. The parking lot attendants would welcome student helpers and understand if you need to leave in time to make it to the stadium before kickoff at 7:30. The parking lot opens at 4:30. I’ll be there by 4:00 to set out signs. Just show up at the Grace Lutheran parking lot, corner of Kings and Harrison, if you’d like to help.

I’ve mentioned this in several previous editions of GRACEnotes, but just to keep reminding you, an overnight retreat is planned for Friday-Saturday, 10/17-18, at Camp Lutherwood. We’ll work on getting to know each other better, practice community-building and learn some leadership skills, eat good food, share in the camp’s work day on Saturday, explore the natural beauty of the camp, build a campfire Friday night, include times for devotions, and just plain relax. There is no cost to attend. Participants are asked to bring a snack and beverage to share. Deadline for signing up is October 10. I’ll send you more details as they unfold.
Traveling mercies to all you who are making their way to campus. Good wishes to all who are settling in to this year’s residences. May this be a year of learning, growing, and life-enriching experiences for you. I look forward to seeing you soon.
