WELS Campus Ministry 
at St. John’s, Mequon

What is WELS Campus Ministry?
WELS Campus Ministry provides fellowship and relaxation for WELS students attending Concordia University-Wisconsin. We also hope to encourage friendships and Bible study relevant to college students. We get together at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Mequon, located 2.7 miles from the CU-W campus.

What does WELS Campus Ministry do?
Students reach out to other WELS students and non-WELS friends to encourage participation.
Students add their voices to planning activities and studies.
Students get together on most Sundays at 7:00 p.m. for a variety of activities including a study of the Bible book of Galatians.
Students gather in the St. John’s Center for gatherings and as a base for off-site activities.
St. John’s Center is open on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. for students needing some campus get-away time.
Students occasionally enjoy home-cooked meals prepared by members of St. John’s.

When does WELS Campus Ministry begin?
The kick-off event is on Sunday, September 19, at 7:00. We’ll introduce ourselves, talk, laugh, and enjoy Pizzaman Pizza, the best pizza in town.
