GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, July 27

This week marks the halfway-point between spring Commencement and fall Welcome Week. Some summer ventures are completed; other are yet to be realized. My sincere hope for you is that you’re finding fulfillment and meaning each day, rejoicing over what has been, and looking with expectation to what will be. You are constantly in my prayers. 
 
This summer, filmmaker Brandon Wade released the second promo film he produced for us. It features students you know telling, from their perspective, the value of Luther House to their university experience. You can watch the entire film here https://vimeo.com/172663803 or visit “Luther House Campus Ministry” on Facebook to see the same film in four short segments.
 
Do you know someone who’ll be new to campus this fall? Please let me know at info@luther-house.org so I can personally welcome them to campus, share a little about Luther House, and make sure a Welcome to Campus Gift Bag is set aside just for them. All I need is their name, phone number or email address. I’ll take it from there. 
 
Apartment Seeking Renter. Do you know a student who’s looking for a campus-close place to live this fall and who would be a good ambassador for Luther House? If so, do tell. We’d love to rent the apartment by September if possible.
 
The other day a student asked if we’ll be doing Pints of Grace this summer? I’m open to the possibility if you are. Let me know you’re interested by email at info@luther-house.org or by phone at 541.753.5213. We could meet up for a cool beverage and a time to chat one day soon during happy hour – or at another time – at McMenamins on Monroe, our regular Pints of Grace location.
 
Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 2650 NW Highland in Corvallis, is celebrating its 50th anniversary, Sunday, August 14, from 4-6:00 pm, with a free picnic, games, bouncy house, bluegrass music by Jim and Bethany Reams, and tour of their Giving Garden. They’ve invited the Luther House community to join them but they need a head-count as to how many will be there. To attend, sign-up on the board at Luther House or call Shepherd of the Valley directly, at 541-753-2816. Deadline for signing up is Sunday, July 31.
 
And now for a Preview of Activities Coming This Fall:
 
+ Tuesday, September 20, 10:30-noon – a Preview Lunch (free) with student panelists discussing "Priorities in College"
+ Wednesday, September 21 –  First Day of Fall Term and the OSU Beaver Community Fair 11:00-3:00
+ Saturday-Sunday, September 24-25 – Camp Lutherwood Retreat sponsored by the Luther House Student Leadership Team
+ Sunday, September 25, 5:30-7:00 – TableTalk resumes
+ Monday, September 26 (tentative), 10:15-10:30 – Morning Prayer resumes
+ Tuesday, September 27, 11:30-1:30 – Come & Go Lunch resumes
 
Stay cool! Have a wonderful week!

LCM welcomes all students to participate in activities, programs, social events and service projects sponsored by the organization. It's governed by a Student Leadership Team. The SLT meets monthly, usually on Thursday evenings, to plan activities. LCM is part of the national Lutheran Student Movement organization LSM-USA.
