This fall, United in Faith is blessed to have THREE seminary
students assigned to us for the 2017-2018 school year. These
students are serving their Ministry in Context (MIC) contextual
education assignment with UIF, which takes place during their
second year of seminary study.
These Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) students
spend about 7 hours a week in ministry with UIF (Sundays plus
one or two other meeting days). They may lead Bible studies,
attend ministry or committee or council meetings, preach,
attend communion visits, or whatever else seems appropriate.
An MIC Lay Committee has been identified already who will
work with all three students (Rich G., Pam M., Denise B., Kim
C., Dawn C.). Each of the students will have an MIC project
that they will lead, probably during the second semester
(January – May). On God’s Work Our Hands Sunday
(September 10th), you will have a chance to meet Aaron Silco,
Liz Koerner, & Ruby Burwell Lee. Watch the September
Newsletter for short bios from each of them and welcome them
with open arms!
