The Commencement Service for Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary, which included both the assignment of calls and graduation of students, occurred on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 7 p.m. in Trinity Chapel. The Rev. Paul Welke (St. Matthew, Winona [WELS]) served as preacher, Pres. Gaylin Schmeling served as liturgist, and the Rev. Dr. J. Kincaid Smith represented the Board of Regents. The sermon was based on 2 Timothy 3:14–17 with the theme “God Has Equipped You for Service.” Both pastoral candidates graduated with Master of Divinity degrees. May God bless these servants of the church.
