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. 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:
3–5 year olds meet on the upper level of the Education Building just down the hall from the Fellowship area.
1st & 2nd graders meet on the upper level of the Education Building at the end of the hall from the Fellowship area.
3rd, 4th & 5th graders meet in the lower level of the Education Building; please follow the signs!
Confirmation Class (6th, 7th & 8th graders) meet with Pastor Jon in the lower level of the Education Building to the left of the stairwell. This class focuses on addressing the youth where they are at in their lives of faith, and linking that with the Old and New Testament and the teachings of Luther’s Small Catechism. For those students who are able, we also experience a week of Confirmation Camp during the summer at Lutherock in Newland, NC.
High School youth 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 adult leaders.
Contemporary Adult Class meets just outside the sanctuary in the room off the narthex (gathering space). Currently this book is having discussion on Brian McClaren’s book “We Make the Road by Walking.” Several moms & pre-3 year olds participate in this class along with others.
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! This class regularly evaluates what is of most interest to the group and recent study topics have been a DVD series “Martin Luther & the Reformation,” “Stump the Pastor,” and currently working through “Unopened Letters from God” by The Rev. Robert L Haden, Jr., a study of dreams in the Bible.
