'Good Courage' worship service

10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 20

See the service live on YouTube

Join the Augustana community for a virtual service of song, scripture readings, prayers and words of hope by current students, professors and our incoming pastor. The Rev. Melinda Pupillo will begin her work as campus chaplain and director of spiritual life in January, but you can meet her by worshipping with us at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 20.

Rev. Pupillo will preach from Holden Village, a remote Lutheran retreat center in the North Cascade Mountains, where she is finishing her call as village pastor. Holden is known for offering a Prayer of Good Courage to all who go forth from that place.
