University Lutheran Church is an open and welcoming church community centered on the love and salvation of God through Jesus Christ as found in the Holy Bible.  We gladly welcome anyone and everyone with open arms and we strive to foster an environment of hospitality, honesty, respect, and community all founded in Christ's love.

We look forward to having an opportunity to welcome you into our building, our community, and our lives.  May the God of all peace bless you and keep you now and forever.

In the love and service of Jesus Christ,
Pastor Benjamin J. Carnahan

Who We Are

We are a community of Christians in the Lutheran tradition. Our emphasis is on the grace of God that is given to us in the gift of Jesus Christ, and through Christ gives us as gifts to one another.

We are not perfect people, but a community that is called together by the perfect love of God. We are a church family that is open to all people who desire the companionship of Christ and his people on their life's journey.
