Reverend Nourreddine Bennai Offers Classes
Sharia Law and the Woman in Islam

Sharia, Sharia law, or Islamic law is the religious law forming part of the Islamic tradition. It is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith. In Arabic, the term sharīʿah refers to God's immutable divine law and is contrasted with fiqh, which refers to its human scholarly interpretations.

Rev. Nourreddine Bennai is offering a new class addressing Sharia law and the woman in Islam in four sessions . Each session is one hour that would normally take the place of the bible class each Sunday for 4 weeks.  If your church is interested in having Pastor Bennai come to your church to present these classes, please contact him.

Campus Ministry

Trinity Lutheran Church, Norman, is gearing up for another year of Campus Ministry to the students at the University of Oklahoma.


Vicar Keith Kettner, from the Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, will be working with Pastor Nehrenz this year at Trinity Lutheran and LCMS U at OU.

As in the past, Trinity will be reaching out to Lutheran students at OU and inviting them to participatein the worship, Bible study, and fellowship life of the congregation.

LCMS U offers many activities specifically oriented toward the students including dinner parties, picnics, retreats and service projects. 

We are also reaching out to the international student community.

We have ordered small catechisms and other resources in various languages

(Chinese, Japanese, Arabic) and are also planning activities for the ESL – English as a Second Language group.

We look forward to the opportunity to assist you in your task of shepherding those members of your congregation who will be attending OU in the coming year.

To that end we will need your help in locating OU students who have come, or will come from your congregation.

We are working with “LCMS U,” our synod’s initiative for campus ministry, run through the Office of National Mission.

They have provided a website which you or a parent can use to enter a student’s name and information.

It can be found here:

1. We ask that you post this link on your church’s website and send it to all your families who have students in college this year.  The LCMS U national website will forward that information to the nearest campus ministry who will then contact the students.  This will aid all the campus ministries in the LCMS, and not just ours at OU.

2. Also print out the Bulletin Insert (two-sided) and the Poster attached to this e-mail and place in your Church Bulletin and on a Bulletin Board this month.  It details the events of the LCMS U at OU Campus Ministry.

Thank you for your time and assistance in helping us to continue to minister to those of your flock and also for your financial support, via the Oklahoma District. Please remember this ministry in your congregational, as well as in your own personal prayers.

We also encourage you, as the home pastor and congregation, to keep in regular, direct contact with your student members (via email, phone calls, letters, cards, care packages, etc), checking up on them and encouraging them to attend our activities and the Divine Services at Trinity.

If there is anything that we can do for you or your students during this academic year, please do not hesitate to contact us.

May the God of grace and mercy bless your labors in His vineyard!
