Student Ministry

Are you a student? Are there students in your family or friendship circles? Did you know First Lutheran and the Student Christian Movement (SCM) are partners in a vibrant ministry engaging with students?

Since COVID19 this Ryerson-based ministry has gone on to ZOOM, and the weekly SCM Contextual Bible studies take place online. Students and young adults from the rest of the GTA are welcome to take part. The Bible studies and other activities are publicized on the SCM at Ryerson U Facebook page. Check it out here:
