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 president of LCMS U at OU, Brandon Groh, at Brandon.D.Grohfirstname.lastname@example.org
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
While Lent can often be seen as a solemn time in the Church (as we reflect on what repentance means in our lives), it is also a time of anticipation. In the same way that Advent anticipates the arrival of our Savior as a baby in a manger, Lent anticipates the arrival of our Savior as a king.
In my morning devotionals, I stumbled across a story from Matthew 20: “Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached Jesus with her sons and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something. He said to her, ‘What do you wish?’ She answered him, ‘Command that these two sons of mine sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom.’ Jesus said in reply, ‘You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the chalice that I am going to drink?’”
We all desire honor, crowns even, in life. James and John are no different. Yet, even as they are anticipating Jesus’ kingdom, we see that they do not realize what kind of kingdom Jesus brings. Jesus brings a kingdom that is based on suffering out of love. His crown will not be of gold, but of thorns. The kingdom he brings would have us desire to serve rather than to be served.
