The ELCA has partnered with the Lutheran Campus Ministry Network, the African Descent Lutheran Association (ADLA) and the Arkansas-Oklahoma Synod for a Creative Writing Contest. This partnership is indicative of our network’s commitment to solutions for racial justice, equity, equality, and inclusion.
Greetings to you in Christ Jesus.
I want to assure all of you that I, Vicar Alyssa, Council Rep Seth Knight, the Luther Memorial Council & our Covid task force are committed to making our ministry to The Well vibrant and life-giving, despite the many uncertainties and changes we face due to the pandemic. We hold you in prayer, trusting in the plans that God holds for us as we walk together in this faith journey that is Campus Ministry. Never forget that we are universally and eternally connected by our baptism into Christ Jesus.
My door is always open to you, for a listening ear or just to chat, as you navigate life as a Virginia Tech student during the craziness of a global pandemic. You can reach me at (540) 951-1003, or email me at email@example.com.
Blessings to you in this semester, and peace be with you!
The Well is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) campus ministry at Virginia Tech. Our home congregation while we study at Virginia Tech is Luther Memorial Lutheran Church - we are incredibly thankful for their continuous support and love. We welcome all to join us in fellowship and service to the community to grow in our own relationships with God as well as in the friendships we have with one another.
During the COVID-19 global pandemic, The Well is working hard to stay connected by continuing our weekly Tuesday dinners at 7 pm, but now virtually over Zoom! These dinners also have activities to follow, including fun games and recently time for meditation and reflection! We also are continuing our Bible Study on Wednesday evenings virtually as well. Even though it is difficult not being near one another so abruptly, we continue to adapt and create new solutions to stay connected and grow in our faith rather than solely focus on the negativity that regularly surrounds us.
We are so excited to meet you and welcome you into The Well!
Vicar Alyssa Kaplan
Because God loves us and calls us to love, we welcome and invite all to engage and grow in faith. Through discipleship and active service in our community, we are able to intentionally deepen our relationships with God and one another.
Each Tuesday at 7:00 pm during the academic year, students meet in the Lutheran Campus Center (600 Prices Fork Rd) for fun, food, and fellowship in Christ. Well students are currently meeting weekly by Zoom - please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. For directions or further information consult this website or call (540) 951-1000.
Studying the scriptures and wrestling with how faith intersects with the intellectual and emotional challenges of college life is an important part of our ministry. During fall and spring semesters join us in the campus ministry center for a small group. Study continues in the summer via Zoom - please e-mail email@example.com for more information.
