Wrapping Up 2021 at UniLu

“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers – it is to him you shall listen…” “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

Thank you for visiting! Would you please prayerfully consider giving a gift?

We’ve had a truly blessed 2021 here at University Lutheran Church.

Spring semester 2021 was a different sort of semester. Most of the students had classes almost entirely online. Many stayed home instead of living in Champaign-Urbana. We still had a core group of students and attendees here who rejoiced together in the fellowship that we have in Christ Jesus.

Several dear brothers and sisters in Christ graduated and said goodbye. (Though, truth be told, 3 of the grads in this picture are still here for either more school or work!)

We had a great big UniLu get-together over the summer when two of our recent graduates, Justin and Maggie, were united in Holy Matrimony!

Another memorable summer event was the disassembly and removal of the old kitchen stove. While some disassembled, other helpers worked to convert the 2nd-floor classrooms into cozy study spaces. Based on photos, we think this was the original stove, circa the early 1950’s. It served (very) long and (very) well. It weighed in at 1,600 pounds at the metal recycler!

Fall Semester 2021 has been a bit more normal. Almost all students have returned to campus and we’ve enjoyed getting to know one another through all sorts of fun activities, meals, and the study and hearing of God’s Word together.

If you are ever in Urbana-Champaign, please stop in and say hello! And if you’re here on the Lord’s Day, please join us for the Divine Service at 10:30 a.m. It’s offered each and every week.

Once again, if you feel so moved, please consider giving a gift to UniLu in one of two ways:

  • An endowment has been established which benefits the work on behalf of the Gospel being done here ($6000 to go for a 1-to-1 matching gift through June 30, 2022).
  • Contribute to our general fund by sending a check to: University Lutheran Church, 604 E. Chalmers St., Champaign, IL 61820.
