Otto teaching in Zambia

Prof. Otto will teach a summer course at the Lutheran Church of Central Africa seminary in Zambia. Read his blog here.

Summer assistants serve congregations

Ten congregations are receiving summer assistants from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary who will serve from June through August. These seminary students have been assigned to Alaska, New Mexico, Texas, Indiana, Michigan, California, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. There they assist with Spanish outreach, help with sports camps, preach, lead Bible studies, help with teens, serve in worship, make outreach calls, work at vacation Bible school, teach ESL, and participate in summer Bible camp.

Call day appeal

A letter from President Wendland was mailed to over 9,300 households in June. In it, he shared the story of how Jesus used one young boy’s small lunch to feed 4,000 men, plus women and children—and how Jesus uses your gifts today. To view the letter, click on the image.
