Sunday Worship: 8:30 and 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary
University Lutheran welcomes ALL to the worship of our Lord.
Our services follow the liturgies of Now the Feast and the Evangelical Lutheran Worship with Holy Communion being offered every service, every Sunday. University Lutheran Church is a child-friendly church. We encourage children of all ages to attend our worship services. There are children’s activity bags in the narthex, a cry room located near the entrance to the sanctuary, and a staffed nursery in the educational building.
ABOUT HOLY COMMUNION: God is the Host for this Holy Meal. All of God’s children are welcome. If you choose not to receive the elements, you may come forward to receive a blessing or remain seated for meditation. Grape juice is available for those who prefer it (indicate so with a raised right index finger).
HEARING ASSISTANCE: Hearing assistance devices are available in the back of the sanctuary by the sound center. Please see the Sound Technician for assistance. If a technician is not available, just take one of the units on top of the sound center. They are ready to go. You may use our ear buds or your own.
WHEELCHAIR ASSISTANCE: If you need a wheelchair, please ask the ushers for assistance.
Sunday School: 9:45 a.m. in the Education Building
All children, youth and adults are invited to the Fellowship Hall on the upper level of the Education Building for 15 minutes of song and sharing prior to dividing out into the following classes:
K – 5th Grade meet on the upper level of the Education Building just down the hall from the Fellowship area.
6th through 12th grade meet in the Youth Room on the upper level of the Education Building just down the hall from the Fellowship area. Discussion is usually topical with Pastor Jon and other adult leaders.
College Students will meet with Pastor Chris at Spill the Beans and they’ll rotate discussion topics through the month: Other denominations/faiths; Bible “shot”; Heroines/Heroes of the Faith; Christian Symbols. The group usually gathers in the LCM Lounge then walks next door for coffer, hot chocolate & conversation.
Contemporary Adult Class meets just outside the sanctuary in the room off the narthex (gathering space). Currently this class is studying the theme of “Justice” using a resource written by New Testament scholar and Professor at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, Dr. Brian Peterson. As always, we look for links between biblical teachings and our call to love God and love our neighbor.
Adult Class II meets in the lower level of the Education Building in the classroom around the corner from the stairwell – listen for the laughter and conversation and you’ll know you are getting close! Beginning in the fall of 2018 we’ll be reading through the Book of Acts and making connections with how this late 1st century writing to the early church speaks to us and our culture today.
