​​Citadel Cadet Outreach​​

Have you noticed a few

Citadel Cadets in worship?

Each Sunday, we will be

providing transportation

for those cadets who wish to attend

morning service at St. Johannes. 

They need to be picked up from The Citadel campus at 8:45am,

and dropped back off after church.  Volunteers are needed to help with transportation….or how about taking a cadet to lunch after church?

As the Chaplain for Lutheran Campus Ministry at the Citadel,

Pastor Alvin meets with the Lutheran cadets every Monday evening.

Local Lutheran churches are responsible for providing a meal each Monday

for 10-15 cadets.  St. Johannes will be responsible for the 4th and 5th Monday.  This month we will be providing a meal on Monday, November 27th at 

The Citadel in Mark Clark Hall, room 340. 

Volunteers are needed to help prepare and/or serve these meals.

If you would be interested in helping, please reach out to

Mary Lou Waitschies at (843)224-3854 or at

Monetary donations to assist with the cost of the meals will also be welcomed.  Checks may be made to: St. Johannes and marked for "Citadel Dinner."
