About Us

Faith is a journey that everyone experiences differently. In college, your faith might be challenged by classes you take or experiences you encounter. Perhaps you’ve never experienced faith before, or maybe you’re aching for a deeper relationship with God through Jesus.

We're About Being Open

LCM is a place where you will find you can come with questions and you’ll find many people to journey with you toward answers. In fact, questions are welcomed and encouraged here, since that’s how faith grows most deeply.

We're Always Here

We’re an active and intimate group centered in the congregation of Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church. We have our own LCM space inside the church with wireless internet that students can access during office hours (8-4:30) for small group meetings, doing homework, or prayer and meditation.

We Worship Together

On Sundays we worship with the whole congregation (8:45am Traditional Worship and 11:00am Contemporary Worship). A

We Grow Together

LCM at Mt. Carmel is a gathering of young people seeking to learn about the Christian faith and go out to the world to be God’s hands and feet in service.

We have a weekly Wednesday night Bible study that starts with a free dinner at 6PM. Come Join us and we'll even give you a ride if you need it

Our Mission

LCM exists to provide a fun and safe environment where college students on the central coast can meet Jesus, grow in their understanding of the Gospel, and apply it to their daily lives. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith and therefore Christ’s love compels us to gather in community, both as a college group and with Mount Carmel as a whole. We want to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ, go to a lost world and authentically share God’s love with others.

Our Vision for 2015-16

As a ministry of Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church, Lutheran Campus Ministry will:

Proverbs 29:18 “Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained.”

At LCM our vision is to live in genuine community where we grow together in our knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. As a result of living out our faith together, Christ’s love will compel us to share the love of Christ with Cal Poly and Cuesta campus’, and the whole central coast.
