University Congregation Fall Worship

What happens when our world falls apart? How do we press onward when our tightly knit plans unravel into loose threads? What do we become when our identity—or the path we’re on—comes undone? What if all of this is not the end we fear it will be?

In our unraveling, sometimes life surprises us with unexpected joy, love, and hope—with a new beginning we couldn’t have imagined. Sometimes we need God to unravel us, for we long to be changed. This fall we’ll explore stories of unraveled shame, identity, fear, grief, dreams, and expectations. These are stories where God meets us in the spiraling, unraveling our plans—and us—into something new.

Join us for worship.  Sundays @ 5pm starting September 13th.

Sunday Worship at PLU

University Congregation is a student worshiping community. We meet during the academic year on Sundays @ 5pm. 

The University Congregation is a Christian worshiping community for students, led by students and our University Pastor. Current PLU students take on leadership roles, help to plan and lead worship and other activities. Music is led by our student worship band.

As a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we practice a common form of worship: gathering in praise, hearing the word, sharing the meal, and sending. Worship is a blend of contemporary and ancient liturgical practices.

Students from a variety of faith backgrounds or no faith backgrounds are welcome to participate in The University Congregation.
