I love summer for many reasons one of them being some down time. Most summer students at UWRF are non-traditional students so we do not carry on with our regular programming which gives me sometime to relax and recharge. Don’t get me wrong I love my job but I appreciate the time to attend some conferences, read some books and plan for fall.
First up on my summer calendar – co-leading devotions with the campus ministry folks from Stout and Eau Claire at the Northwest Synod of WI. annual conference. We will be answering the question: what campus ministry means to me/why campus ministry is important.
Have a great summer.
Thanks to all who donated quilts, food, time and talents to our quilt auction. Here our some photos of the event.
Don’t forget our quilt auction and chili dinner is coming up tomorrow evening 6-9pm at St. Bridget’s in River Falls. Here are the beautiful quilts that we will be auctioning off.
here is our latest attempt at getting the word out
Each spring during Black History Month the Black Student Union organization holds their annual soul food dinner at Journey House. There is always good food, conversations and fun.
Getting the word out about our events is an on going project that sometimes gets a little old so the peer leaders and I have been working on doing some fun and creative things to get the word out – our first try dancing in the windows of the UC with large poster boards!
Every year we participate in a joint retreat with the Lutheran Campus Ministry from UW-Stout, the United Methodist Campus ministry from Stout and the Lutheran Campus Ministry from Eau Claire. The retreat took place this past weekend – we learned about our “True Colors” and about why mission and vision statements are important. We also had quite a bit of fun.
