SCC Minutes for Sunday, November 10, 1996
Attending: Teresa Palumbo (Chair), Scott Lindhurst (Secretary), Stephanie
Lutter (Worship), Korie Lebert and Teresa Palumbo (Social Ministry), Nate
Blair and Andy Lubansky (Hospitality), Kelly Brook (D.C. Representative),
Brent Christianson (Campus Pastor).
The meeting began with devotions by Korie.
The minutes of the last meeting (taken by Teresa) were accepted.
Outreach. 6 people attended their last group calling of the semester
on November 4th. Individual calling will continue.
Worship. We have started the theme of "The Beatitudes" for Wednesday
worship. The committee will create a service of lessons and carols for the
last Wednesday before Christmas vacation.
Education. Bishop Enslin will visit for a fireside chat on December
4th. A Friday noon Bible study on the gospel of Mark begins on November 15th;
later that day Carla Aamodt will give the month's distinguished student lecture.
Social Ministry. The pumpkin carving went very well. They are looking
for suggestions for speakers for the Thursday noon lunches and for advice
on who to donate our offerings to. We generally favored donating to local
charities instead of national ones because we can make more of a difference
locally. Korie and Teresa are cooking on November 20th and want to do a hunger
banquet, showing us proportionally how people worldwide eat (a few get steak,
the vast majority get just a little bit of rice). To reduce the amount of
work and avoid scaring first time visitors, they may just make placemats
demonstrating the proportions and cook a simple and inexpensive dish and
donate the remaining cost supper money to Oxfam.
Social Activities. Jane Albright-Dieterle will speak at the Spring
banquet on May 4th at the Inn on the Park. We need to get 125 people to go,
so members of our covenant churches will not only be invited but also heartily
encouraged to come. Before that, we have the Winter banquet at the Campus
Center on December 13th.
Hospitality is still being hospitable. Remember to be hospitable yourself
and greet new people.
Fine Arts. The current display is icons painted by a Lutheran pastor
in Milwaukee and looks great.
Directing Committee. Luther Memorial is glad to have many students
attending their Sunday worship. Don't forget to let students know about the
many Sunday worship opportunities at Bethel and L.M. The committee is a bit
worried that the barbeque and line dance was poorly attended because of conflicts
with exams; they'll have to schedule more carefully next time. Those of you
who have fainted from the heat during worship will be glad to know that the
DC is working on finding options to fix the heating and air conditioning
problems at the Campus Center. They are starting by getting MG&E to perform
a free energy audit and evaluation of the building.
Staff. Laurie's sabbatical ends Monday, November 11th.
The Lutheran Brotherhood fund drive deadline is November 22nd. We received
lists of people to remind about the drive. A suggested approach is "Did you
receive the letter and will you think about contributing?"
Six students and Laurie are going to the LSM national retreat in San Antonio
over New Year's.
Teresa suggested making and selling LCC t-shirts. We like the idea and a
few members of the SCC think we can get shirts made for less than $10 each
if we order about 50.
The next SCC meeting is Sunday, December 8th at 7:00 in the Campus Center.
Don't forget to attend or Teresa will be forced to use her gavel.
