SCC minutes for Sunday, February 19, 1995
Attending: Nikki, Francis, Emily, Erik, Laurie, Krista, Brent, Nate, Jeremy,
The meeting opened with devotions by Nikki.
Jeremy handed out a list of the September-December activity, and it looks
as though we still have money left. We have yet to make up budgets for the
different committees; all are allocated $100, but they just spend as much as
they need. For example, Social Activities and Outreach have to spend more
than $100 each, but the other committees don't seem to need very much
money. So we have to make up budgets one of these months.
- Outreach's next group calling night is March 6th; their last one
During Lent, we will add a 9 P.M. worship in Memorial Union; the 9 P.M. Ash
Wednesday worship will be in the Campus Center. It would be nice to have
some regulars show up to the later services to help new people with the
- Education (Erik Rudeen).
Scott Klug is coming for a fireside chat on April 12, and there will be some
sort of Earth Day program on April 19.
- Social Ministry (Emily Farwell).
Thursday lunches will discuss medical ethics and different lifestyles
(e.g. prison ministry). On Feb. 28, we will celebrate Mardi Gras with
children at the YWCA on the capitol square. There will be a Lenten
blood drive March 1-10, including a blood thermometer to track our progress.
- Social Activities (Krista Bultmann).
At the interfaith Valentine's Day dance, people actually mixed: Lutherans
talked to non-Lutherans rather than just keeping to themselves.
- Hospitality (Nate Blair).
Nate had ten people over to his apartment for a hospitality committee
get-together, training, discussion, and party on Feb.17.
- Fine Arts.
After the exhibit with the tire, someone brought up the question:
Should we try to get exhibits that are more religious, or at least consistent
with the image and ideas of the LCC (so we don't scare people away)? One
suggestion is to put up a sign indicating the exhibit is an exhibit
and isn't permanent.
- Directing Committee wants the SCC to follow through on the
ideas generated at the January retreat (the strengths, weaknesses,
wish lists, etc.). Francis will divide them up as appropriate for our
committees, which will then report on the feasibility, desirability,
or implementation details of the ideas.
Brent was appointed interim staff advisor for LSM. Laurie went to a
Lutheran Brotherhood meeting; they will subsidize $25 per person for the
regional LSM retreat April 7-9, for up to 10 people.
A Tai Chi demonstration and lesson is scheduled for March 25th. Brent
says it will be great and everyone should sign up immediately.
SCC/DC retreat followup: there is a small group working on our
mission statement; first they have to figure out what one is supposed to
