Welcome, in the name of Christ, to University Lutheran Church in Palo Alto...
We want the world to be a better place. We seek grace for all people and all creation. We work for justice and peace in all the earth. We desire to be closer to God and to one another. We aspire to be people who are changing the world for the better. We see the church as a movement, not an organization. We are the people of University Lutheran Church, and we are working, with each other and with God, to bring about a new way of life. Join us...
Christ is the incarnate Word of God, is present in our gathering, is attentive to our prayers, is calling us into service, is making peace and reconciliation among us, is leading us to justice, peace, grace, and love, and is the host of our weekly communion meal; Let there be no barrier to the table of the Lord.
This is a campus ministry congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, made up of students, staff, faculty, and alumni, as well as neighbors, singles, couples, families, friends, commuters, visitors, and seekers.
