You’ll find a welcoming community at LSTC. We are a Reconciling in Christ seminary, in continual conversation about growing in the ways we honor and welcome all people. LSTC’s family- and pet-friendly apartments are just a block away from the main building. Commuter students often stay on campus overnight in the commuter house apartment. Study or socialize in the Refectory, our gathering place.Learn more
Chapel & Music
Worship is at the center of our life together. We are reconciled and renewed around word and sacraments. Teams of students, faculty and staff plan each week’s worship. Musicians within the community share their gifts as soloists, ensemble players, choir members or leading the liturgy.Learn more
