ULS Chapel and Worship

As we move into United Lutheran Seminary, we wish to share news about the chapels on our two campuses. At Philadelphia our Senior Sacristan will be Lauren Heywood, and our Sacristan will be Ralen Robinson. At Gettysburg our Sacristans will be Arin Liszka and Seth Roseman.

We have agreed that there will be four chapel services on both campuses. At Gettysburg chapel will be held mid-day Tuesdays through Fridays, with Wednesday being a Eucharist (Holy Communion). We are also planning four weekly services at Philadelphia, including Tuesday evenings and Wednesday and Thursday mid-day, with Wednesday being Eucharist. The day and time of the fourth service are not final. When intensive courses are being held on a campus, services will be held daily. And, of course, festival services are being planned for convocations and other major occasions.

Please contact either of the Deans of the Chapel for ULS (Michael Krentz at Philadelphia, Mark Oldenburg at Gettysburg) if you have any questions. And we ask your prayers for the chapel planning teams, and for the entire ULS community as we move forward.

Netclassroom Portal Retirement

The Gettysburg Seminary student portal, Netclassroom7, will go offline Monday morning 5/22/17. This means students will no longer be able to access unofficial transcripts, student billing statements or pay student billing balances on-line until we have fully switched over to the unified system as United Lutheran Seminary. Any final statements for the year will be printed and distributed through the mail. If you need to pay your bill via credit card after this date, please contact Student Billing directly. Do not send credit card information via email.
