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.
