October WELS Connection

The October edition of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) Connection highlighting news from our national church body - This month we hear about how Martin Luther College (MLC), New Ulm, Minn. is recognizing 150+ years of ministerial training in our synod by celebrating the 2020 silver anniversary of MLC with a two-year campaign. The title, “Equipping Christian Witnesses,” reflects not only the mission of its institution—to train a corps of Christian witnesses to meet WELS ministry needs—but also the pillars of the campaign; Recruitment, Financial Aid, and Facilities.

June 2019 WELS Connection

The June edition of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) Connection highlighting news from our national church body - This month we are reminded that the God-given mission of the church is to seek the lost. Knowing that, we rightly dedicate much effort and resources to reaching the unchurched and those who have never known their Savior. But that same zeal for missions should lead us also to recognize that we have a ripe mission field right in our own congregations, among family, friends, and neighbors who once worshiped with us but have now strayed. Watch this month’s WELS Connection to learn more about your synod’s initiative to seek the lost.

August 2018 WELS Connection

The August edition of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) Connection highlighting news from our national church body - This month we learn about a seminary student's vicar year. A year as a vicar is part of the practical application required for preparing future pastors for the ministry. Over recent years, there has been an increased effort to place more vicars in mission setting to ensure that making disciples of all nations remains at the center of everything we do.
