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.

If you are interested in teaching an English class, contact Pastor Patoka for more information.


Wednesday, February 21: Midweek Lenten Worship Services

Follow Jesus' path to Calvary's cross during the church season of Lent. Grace Lutheran will have a midweek Lenten service each Wednesday at 10 AM and 7 PM looking under the theme "Jesus Christ Is Our Great High Priest." There is also a dinner at 6 PM in the Fellowship Hall if you wish to grab a bite to eat before the evening worship service.


Thursday, February 22: Women's Bible Study

Are you a female and looking for a small group Bible study? Then come to Pastor Koehler's Bible study and learn "Key Bible Words!" Whether you've come in the past or not, you will be good to go as each week's Bible study is independent from the past week. Thursdays at 9 AM in the Fellowship Hall.


Friday, February 23: TCM Movie Night*

Looking for a relaxing night of popcorn and soda while watching a good movie on the big screen with surround sound? Come on by TCM's Movie Night this Friday at 7 PM. We'll be watching "Spider-Man: Homecoming."


Sunday, February 25: 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, February 25: TCM Bible Study

The Bible records Jesus performing miracles one after another. What's the big deal about the miracles? Why did Jesus do them as often as he did while he walked around on Earth? Come to TCM's next Bible study "What's The Deal With Miracles?" and see how Jesus did these impossible actions to fit within his larger purpose of our salvation. This Sunday at 7 PM in the Student Center. Doors will be at 6:30. There is no light dinner planned beforehand as of now.


Sunday, March 4: KOINE Leading Worship Services

Come and worship with Grace Lutheran on Sunday, March 4, and hear the award-winning worship band KOINE. They will be leading us in a worship service called "Footsteps to the Cross" which will feature a visual and moving musical narrative following Christ from the Mount of Transfiguration to the cross. You can find more information about KOINE on their website -- You are invited to join us at our regular time for worship of 7:45 and 10 AM.
