Taste of the Sem

“Together With All Creatures”

January 15-17, 2011

Taste of the Sem is an opportunity for high school men to spend a weekend at the Seminary to study theology, pray, worship, meet, and talk with Seminary students and professors. Participants will spend time with one Seminary student at his field education congregation on Sunday morning and attend classes with him on Monday morning. The event is designed to provide a sense of Seminary life for those who think God might be directing them toward the pastoral ministry.

  • Study the Scriptures and take a closer look at the Biblical account of creation.
  • Understand what all is included when we confess, “I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.”
  • Gain an appreciation of life together with all God’s creatures.
