There are lots of ways to get involved at University Lutheran Chapel. Check out some of the activities below and put your gifts to work for Christ, His Church, and for other people. You can get involved...
In Bible Studies
ULC has great Bible studies that are faithful to the Scriptures, intelligently taught and discussed, and that address a wide variety of topics. Sunday morning Bible study is usually a verse-by-verse study of one of the books of the Bible. Table Talk is a topical study that usually spans several weeks per topic. LSF Sunday Lunch is a casual, topical discussion with the topic changing each session. Saturday Evening Bible Study usually studies a particular book or topic throughout the year and meets in members' homes. If you have a topic you'd like to study, let our pastor know. He's always open to ideas. Click here for a current list of studies.
In Lutheran Student Fellowship
Outreach - Are you interested in reaching out to others with the Gospel? Would you like to help us make ULC known on campus, and invite other students to church? If so, then you can help at our outreach events on campus. Each semester we usually have an information table at the Activities Fairs, Orientation, and in Coffman Union. We also need help hanging posters, chalking sidewalks, etc. If you have ideas of your own to add we want to hear them! See Pastor Kind or Matt Rothchild
LSF Activities - Lutheran Student Fellowship sponsors several social events each semester, usually at ULC. LSF also is our main outreach to the University community and hosts outreach events on campus each semester.
LSF Leadership - Not a huge commitment, but still a great opportunity to get more involved and have an input in the activities of LSF.
Helping with the Liturgy - There are several ways to be involved with service itself. There's ushering, greeting, or being a liturgical assistant on festival Sundays. See Glen Meints or Pastor Kind if you are interested.
Altar Guild - Serving on Altar Guild is a great way to be involed behind the scenes on Sunday morning. The Altar prepares the elements for Holy Communion, changes paraments and banners, takes care of the candles, and host of other things. The Altar Guild's work isn't always trumpeted, but is extremely valuable. If you are interested, talk with Carol Hasbargen who will help get you started.
Singing in the Choir - Our choir is small, but dedicated; and is always looking for new voices. You don't have to be a Pavarotti either. If you enjoy singing at all, this is a great way to get involved. See the music page for more info.
Playing an instrument in the Service - Special music always seems to enrich the worship service. If you play an instrument consider playing for one of our services. Whether it simply be playing a short piece during the offering, or participating in a special ensemble for a festival Sunday, we'd love to put your talents to work. See the music page for additional info.
At the Chapel
Membership - If you are already a member of an LC-MS or AALC congregation, you can either transfer your membership to University Lutheran Chapel, or become an associate of ULC (non-voting member). If you are not a member of an LC-MS congregation, see Pastor Kind to find out how you could become a member of ULC.
Chapel Council - The chapel council at ULC is the body that makes many of the decisions of what happens at our chapel. Positions include: President, Outreach, Fellowship, Buildings and Grounds, Nurture, and Christian Service & Stewardship. Elections are held every February in our Voters' Meeting. If you are interested in serving, please see Pastor Kind or our congregational President, Paul Edmon.
Building and Grounds - Help make our student house a nicer place for everyone by assisting with the upkeep and improvement of our facilities. The Building and Grounds committee is always happy to get help! Talk to Steve Demlow, Jim Boldt or Matthew Rieddle if you'd like to be involved in this way.
