Some MLC students jump right into congregational life at St. Paul and St. John: teaching Sunday school, helping with youth group, singing in the choir, adding instrumental music, and (for older pre-seminary students) doing liturgy. Other students simply go to church and worship at these congregations.  What matters most is that students enjoy the congregational life to be found in New Ulm and God blesses both students and congregations.
