Love Our Neighbor │ Justice, Advocacy, Campus Ministry
Social Justice is how we proclaim the good news of Christ for all of creation. At UniLu, it includes volunteering, stewardship, in-gathering, knitting, cooking, serving, prayer, and service on boards of directors - ways we encounter God in the world around us as we seek to bring about the promised Reign of God.
Social Justice themes
Our Social Justice themes change as the congregation and the needs around us change -- here are a few of the missions we are supporting and mission partners we are engaged with currently:

Temporary Women's Shelter
Since 2014, University Lutheran Church has hosted Heart and Home Collaborative's temporary cold weather shelter for women for six weeks each winter. The shelter will be housed at Uni Lu from January 13 - February 23 and will move to another church from February 24 - April 8. UniLu would like to invite all local students, congregants, College Terrace neighbors, and community members to engage with the shelter through volunteer opportunities to provide a meal, volunteered your time and resources, support shelter staff, and help our guests feel at home!
