Roots

Lutheran Campus Ministry


Lutheran Campus Ministry at Common Ground is a Christ-centered community in the Lutheran tradition (ELCA). 

We believe that all people are created in God's image. 

We are passionate about the radical hospitality that Jesus showed all people

We are committed to being a place of that same hospitality.

We welcome all people to our life and ministry together --

                       in worship, at the font, at the table, and in our life together

                       regardless of race, gender identities, sexual orientation

                       or any other category society uses to differentiate between people. 


There is no longer Jew nor Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28


We are a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the La Crosse Area Synod.


We are a Reconciling in Christ ministry. Being RIC means that we are intentional in being a place of welcome and safety for lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, transgender, and questioning people.



We share our space with United Campus Ministry of La Crosse, WI
