Building Together. In Christ. For Mission.
Celebrate with us!
To date, nearly $3 million of the total needed for renovations at the University Lutheran Chapel and the District Office in Seward has been received in gifts and pledges in support of our Building Together. In Christ. For Mission. capital campaign. The Dunklau Foundation has graciously matched $500,000 in gifts earmarked to support the Chapel. The goal of the campaign was to support the over $6.0 million planned renovations at the University Lutheran Chapel in Lincoln and the Nebraska District LCMS office in Seward. The renovations of the Chapel were completed at a cost of nearly $4.54 million and the renovations at the District office were completed at a cost of nearly $1.27 million.
Because of the support of Nebraska District members and congregations through capital campaign pledges, regular offering gifts, and special designated gifts for campus ministry, the Nebraska District is able to proclaim the Good News of Jesus to those on Nebraska’s university campuses who have never heard of Him.
Congregations and individuals who would like to give to our capital campaign or become partners in campus ministry through regular financial support or a one-time gift can call our office at 888-643-2961, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our District Ministries page at this link for more information.

During the Nebraska District Convention, President Snow dedicated the renovations at the University Lutheran Chapel in Lincoln and the District Office in Seward. In doing so, he kicked off the Building Together. In Christ. For Mission. Capital Campaign which makes possible many necessary updates so the Nebraska District can better bring Christ’s light to the world through these ministry centers.
