Episcopal-Lutheran Ministry (ELM) of Hampden-Sydney College & Longwood University
Who We Are
The purpose of the Episcopal - Lutheran Campus Ministry primarily for Episcopal and Lutheran(ELCA) students is open to ALL students from a variety of faith backgrounds; a place to explore life's questions in the context of the Christian faith. We engage scripture, worship, reason and experience in a manner that both progressively addresses today's issues, and is rooted theologically in the time-tested anchors of Christian belief and practice. We also just have a lot of fun! The Episcopal - Lutheran Campus ministry is based at Johns Memorial Episcopal Church, located at 400 High Street in Farmville. The ELM group meets Sunday evenings from 5:30 - 7:00 pm in the Parish House for Worship, followed by dinner and discussion or program. Students are also welcome to actively participate in the Sunday morning worship at Johns (8:00 am and 10:30 am) as well as in the Wednesday night Evening Prayer and Eucharist at 6:00 pm. Mission trips, service projects, recreational activities and other special events occur throughout the semester. ELM is open to all students on both campuses of Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College.
