Sunday Worship: 8:30 and 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary
University Lutheran welcomes ALL to the worship of our Lord.
Our worship services vary from church season to season, drawing primarily from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship settings, Now the Feast, and for midweek Advent and Lent services, Holden Evening Prayer and Taize, respectively. University Lutheran Church is a child-friendly church encouraging children of all ages to participate in our worship services. If desired, 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). Holy Communion is offered at every Sunday worship celebration.
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). 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. The class has been studying the Book of Romans. Recent study topics have been the book of Acts, and a DVD series “Martin Luther & the Reformation. “Stump the Pastor” is used occasionally in between curriculum choices!
