Synod Council approved and encourages congregations to celebrate Newberry College Sunday. Here are ways to participate:
- Call (803-947-2052) or email Ms. Susan Page (Susan.Page@Newberry.edu) or The Rev. Ernie Worman (firstname.lastname@example.org). They can arrange a guest speaker for a temple talk on Newberry College Sunday to come to your congregation and tell you about the great things happening at Newberry College.
- If your congregation has members who are students at the college currently, ask them to give a temple talk about the college. If they contact Ernie Worman he will send bulletin inserts and offering envelopes for the event.
- Invite The Rev. Dr. Wayne Kannaday NC ’75, Rev. Dr. Christy Wendland or the Rev. Ernie Worman to come and preach at the church on Newberry College Sunday or any Sunday.
- Call and arrange for a group from the church to visit Newberry College for lunch and a tour, or, visit one of our many fine athletic or music events as a church group.
- Call and invite the choir to come and sing in your church throughout the year.
Newberry College is a college of the church, started by the church and to serve the mission of the church. Newberry College and the ELCA are partners in the Gospel of Jesus Christ through providing a quality education for all people on a campus where faith and reason are in dialogue, where diversity and inclusivity are valued, where personal and public vocation coincide.
