Pastor's Perspective

Think of St. Andrew's Lutheran Campus Ministry this Giving Tuesday,
November 27!

Dear friends of St. Andrew's, dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
As we have focused our mission on greater student leadership in our ministry, the Spirit has been active centering lives, bringing hope, calming anxiety, and inspiring genuine faith in action.

This year brings a newly funded part-time Student Minister to St. Andrew's whose work has increased our visibility on campus and expanded our ministry offerings. A record number of undergraduate students are worshiping with us this fall. We continue to discern how to faithfully steward a facility that does not support our mission the way it once did. It is an exciting and a challenging time, and we could not do any of this work without you.

As we work hard to share God's grace in Christ with students, we ask that you prayerfully consider a gift to St. Andrew's through IL Give's 2018 end-of-year fundraiser . We have set a bold and hopeful goal of $6,000 for this campaign, and we will update our progress on our website, Facebook page, and Instagram and Twitter accounts.

The opportunity to give an online gift through this special fundraiser takes place between November 27, 2018 and January 1, 2019. Only in this time period will you be able to donate online toward our goal.

Your partnership and support make a difference in the lives of students. We give thanks to God for your support of our ministry in the Gospel.

Grace and Peace in Christ,

Pr. Amy C. Thoren
