Alumni and friends are invited to join us for our annual dinner gathering on Friday, May 12. Your RSVP is free and saves your seat for the fellowship and presentations. Pay just $5 upon arrival (cash or check to MLC) to enjoy a delicious cafeteria meal. In addition to the meal, you’ll have time to visit with old friends, meet other alumni, and hear presentations on MLC programs and progress

Registration and social hour kicks off at 4:00 PM in the Luther Student Center’s Cafeteria Conference Center. We’ll take our seats for a formal welcome and prayer at 4:45, then partake of the cafeteria’s buffet style dinner.

Presentations from Professor Lawrence Olson (Staff Ministry and the Congregational Assistant Program), Vice President Steve Thiesfeldt (Campus Development – Plans and Priorities), and Professor Jon Schaefer, MLCAA President (Fishers of Men Statue and Scholarship Campaign) will begin at 5:45 and conclude around 6:45. You’ll have plenty of time to make your way to the auditorium and claim your seat for the 7:30 concert. For the foreseeable future, the commencement concerts will be secular in nature and will take place in the WCC Auditorium. An identical concert will be occurring at 4 p.m. to ensure that all have an opportunity to attend.

Come back Saturday for commencement at 10:00 and the call service at 2:30. Both will occur in the gymnasium and all are welcome. Seating may be limited so please arrive early.

Capacity is limited and RSVP is required. Contact Steve Balza in the alumni office (507-217-1731 or ) to reserve your spot or register online. We hope to see you here on the hill as we celebrate not just another group of graduates, but a healthy harvest of God’s gracious gifts to His church.
