University Lutheran Church, commonly known as "ULu," is a congregation of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, serving local residents and students who want to be part of bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our unique community. We work in partnership with the Indiana District - LCMS and Faith Lutheran Church. We invite you to be a part of our fellowship.
YOU HAVE A HOME HERE, whether you're a Bloomington resident, undergrad, graduate student, single or married. We come pursuing various fields of study, from all walks of life, all states and many different nations to become connected to Christ, to each other, and to the whole Christian Church. Bible Studies and Fellowship opportunities are made available for children through adults as the make-up of the congregation changes. Join the many who’ve said, “ULu was the best part of being at IU!”
We proclaim the incarnate, crucified, risen, ascended, and returning Christ through Word and Sacrament ministry. Click here for an in-depth statement of faith from the LCMS. For those wishing to learn more, please consider speaking with Pastor Woelmer and joining our What We Believe Class.
ABOUT OUR WORSHIP SERVICE
Lutheran churches are liturgical. That means we use the liturgy of the Church of the ages to confess our faith in unity with each other and with the whole Christian Church on earth. Our Order of Service is often taken word for word from the Scripture. Some might describe the worship as "traditional" and for some, it may seem foreign, but that's good - it is different than the message of the world. The liturgy is the special activity of the baptized people of God. You learn by participating - being here every week, hearing His Word and receiving His gifts.
Location & Parking
University Lutheran Church is located at the corner of 7th St. & Fess Ave., directly across from Dunn Meadow and the Indiana Memorial Union. ULu is never more than a 20-minute walk from anywhere on campus!
