The Coffee Hour

As you grab your morning coffee (and pastry, let’s be honest), join hosts Andy Bates and Sarah Gulseth as they bring you stories of the intersection of Lutheran life and a secular world. Catch real-life stories of mercy work of the LCMS and partners, updates from missionaries across the ocean, behind the scenes encounters from the International Center, and practical talk about how to live boldly Lutheran.

Show Time: Monday-Friday at 9:00 a.m. Central Time
