The 2022 Homecoming weekend is set for October 7-9. We look forward to celebrating our school and its students – present and past. The Friday night Talent Show will serve as an entertaining opener to the weekend’s festivities. The annual Sprinter Fun Run, Family Fun Zone, and Alumni Registration bring folks together on Saturday morning. Plan to cheer on Knights football and soccer squads on Saturday afternoon (volleyball schedule is currently TBD). Homecoming worship is always a highlight with all choirs beautifying the service (Sunday at 9:30). A second annual Disc Golf tournament and the WLS vs MLC soccer match close out the weekend on Sunday afternoon. If you are planning to stay in a local hotel, make your reservations early as the first two weekends in October are also Oktoberfest in New Ulm. A full schedule of events will be posted below as details are finalized.
The return of alumni, family, and friends for Homecoming 2021 was a special blessing that was not taken for granted. The talent show drew its typical large crowd on Friday night as a variety of videos and musical acts entertained the audience. Over 500 alumni and friends across the globe participated in the 11th annual Sprinter Fun Run to start off our Saturday. The Family Fun Zone followed and filled the gym with inflatables (including Papal, the Mechanical Bull), laughter, and joy. Men’s Soccer came away with a solid 5-2 victory over North Central while Football and Women’s Soccer both battled valiantly before falling just short in overtime efforts. The Alumni Mixer drew over 200 to enjoy some free food and fellowship with friends. After a somewhat soggy Saturday, the Lord poured out some autumn awesomeness with temps in the mid-70s for our Sunday. The Homecoming worship in a full Chapel of the Christ included some sensational singing and a solid message from President Gurgel. The first-ever Homecoming Disc Golf Tournament in Luther Hollow, a Wind Symphony concert in the Auditorium, and the WLS/MLC soccer match concluded the fun-filled weekend.
