Friends of the Seminary Day sermon

Prof. Thomas Kock preached this sermon at our Friends of the Seminary Day, October 4, 2014.

John 3:16 -- “Could there be anything more valuable than that?”

Come, Holy Spirit! Fill the hearts of Your people, and kindle in us the fire of Your love. Amen.

Friends of the Seminary Day held

On Saturday morning, Oct. 4, 131 people gathered in the auditorium for Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Auxiliary’s Friends of the Seminary Day. This annual event highlights the way gifts to WLS help support the worldwide mission of WELS. That’s one of the reasons Joan Schmick comes every year. “I sit here and realize that I can go across the country and know that every single WELS pastor has come through this campus,” she says.
