Friends of the Seminary Day cancelled

Dear Friend of the Seminary,

Your faithful prayers and generous offerings allow us to continue the work the seminary has done for 157 years—preparing pastors for the worldwide work of WELS.

Each fall, we look forward to inviting you to campus for Friends of the Seminary Day to tell you more about that work. It’s our chance to thank you—in person—and introduce you to faculty and students.

Unfortunately, we have come to the decision to cancel this year’s in-person event. Please know that while our events may change, our purpose and mission have not. We continue to prepare men who are eager and able to preach the Word and to equip you for lives of service.

We place ourselves in the Lord’s hands, asking him to bless us and the decisions we have made. He will guide all of this in a way that pleases him, serves his saving plans, and benefits us. Of that we are certain.

Thanking God for your partnership,

Earle D. Treptow, president
