Welcome College Students
The LCMS U at OU would like to thank you for stopping by. We have free dinner and Bible study every Tuesday night at 6:30 pm (Bible study at 7:00). We meet at the Vicar’s house located at 419 Castro Street. Please park in the Church’s parking lot and enter through “The LSF Gate.” We enjoy fellowship with each other while studying God’s Word and singing hymns! If you have questions or would like to know more, please feel free to email the Vicar.
LCMS U at OU is a campus ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Norman, Oklahoma. The church is located at the intersection of Classen Blvd. & Alameda with Divine Service at 8:00 and 10:30am, with Bible Study at 9:15 am on Sundays. We welcome and encourage you to join us in worship on Sunday mornings, especially if you are unable to attend the Tuesday night meetings.
From the Vicar
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever” (Isaiah 40:8).
We are entering a new year, and with each new year, we can expect changes. We grow a little older, the seasons change, and there are new leaders in our country. The new year is also when people make all kinds of resolutions to change the habits they have formed over the last year or longer. This text from Isaiah reminds us that things around us are continually changing. However, we are also reminded that God and His word “will stand forever.” God’s promises are not a New Year’s resolution that He might keep for a while and then forget about. No, God’s word stands forever since God does not “change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has He spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” (Numbers 23:19) God is faithful to His word and promise; his promise to “make all things new” (Revelation 21:5) and to save us in and through Jesus Christ is a promise that stands forever. Our Lord Jesus Christ came into the world to save us from our sins by His death and resurrection. He ascended to the Father and sent us the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide His Church. So, while the world and circumstances around us may change, we know that our Lord’s word will stand forever and “that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Let us pray: Eternal God, we commit to Your mercy and forgiveness the year now ending and commend to Your blessing and the love the times yet to come. In the new year, abide among us with Your Holy Spirit that we may always trust in the saving name of Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and The Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen!
