WELS Tucson Campus Ministry

WELS Tucson Campus Ministry (TCM) is all about connecting people ages 18-25 to Christ. TCM does this in three primary ways: 1) learning God's Word through worship and Bible study, 2) developing meaningful Christian friendships, and 3) serving others out of thanks to God. TCM is also a great way to find out what Christianity is all about. 

For this semester's schedule for TCM specific events, click here or look at our Facebook page. For information on parking permits, click here.


Check below for upcoming activities at Grace Lutheran you are invited to.

Wednesday, January 17: Church History Class

What makes a Lutheran a Lutheran? Who was Martin Lutheran and why does he have a church body named after him? Come to Pastor Kassulke's church history Bible class to answer these and other questions. See how God has guided his children through the hands of history. Wednesday at 10 AM and 7 PM in the Fellowship Hall.


Thursday, January 18: Women's Bible Study

Are you a female and looking for a casual small group Bible study? Then comes to Pastor Koehler's Bible study and learn "Key Bible Words!" Whether you've come in the past or this will be your first time, you will be good to go as the Bible study is set up so each Thursday is its own lesson. Thursday at 9 AM in the Fellowship Hall.

Saturday, January 20: Benson Chili Cookoff*

If you like chili of any kind, this is the event for you. Feel free to make one and bring it on down for consideration. You can also just come to eat as much as you want and help judge in the tasting competition. Address is 451 W Duane Street Benson, AZ 85602.


Sunday, January 21: Worship Services and Adult Bible Study

Praise the Lord in word and song! Hear his love as shown to us through Jesus Christ with other people who have their sights set on heaven. Sunday worship is one of the highlights of Grace Lutheran. You are always invited to our 7:45 and 10 AM worship services in the sanctuary. There is Adult Bible Study at 9 AM in the Fellowship Hall where Pastors Koehler and Kassulke teach a wide variety of teachings from the Bible.


Sunday, January 21: TCM Bible Study

Who is Matthew and what qualifies him to be an inspired writer of the New Testament? How does Matthew show readers today that Jesus is the Promised Savior? Come to TCM's first Bible study of the semester and see "Who is Matthew and his Book?" Bible study is at 7 PM in the Student Center. Doors will be open at 6 PM. Take-out from "Pollo Feliz" will be provided for a light dinner.
