Circle meeting times:
Amnos Circle (the Greek word for Lamb)
Third Wednesday of each month at 9 am
Lychnion Circle (the Greek word for Light)
Third Tuesday of each month at 12:30 pm
Rhodon Circle (the Greek word for Rose)
Third Wednesday of each month at 1 pm
Pub Theology is a new opportunity led by Pastor Gary that meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays each month at Ellison Brewery and Spirits, 4903 Dawn Ave, in East Lansing from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Each time we meet there will be a list or four or five questions available to focus our discussion. Come and invite a friend and bring your questions about God and faith. Beer, Conversation and God!
Young Adult Bible Study
In a relaxed “come as you are” atmosphere, this small group will incorporate faith-based issues with real life experiences. Led by Pastor Haley Vay, we gather with other 20-40 something adults downstairs in the Education Wing each Sunday and begin with a soft start at 9:40am (begins Sept. 30)
Lectio Divina meets weekly on Wednesdays at 12 noon for silent prayer and contemplation. To learn more, contact Bill Trevarthen, Pastor Gary Bunge, or Pastor Haley Vay Beaman.
Tuesday Morning Text Study
Members and friends meet at ULC weekly on Tuesday mornings at 7:30 am to review liturgical texts for the upcoming Sunday. Contact Jim Kiefer or Larry Wagenknecht to learn more.
ULC is blessed by the richness and diversity of its members, many of whom have ties to Michigan State University, state government, and a variety of local and national organizations. Each Sunday from September to mid-May, members have the opportunity to hear presentations and participate in discussions on a wide variety of topics.
Forum is held in the Fireside Room during the Education Hour from 9:40-10:30 a.m. Click below for a list of topics, or sign up below to receive the ULC weekly email.
New Member Classes
New member classes are held in the spring and fall as demand requires. New members meet with the pastoral staff for a "Lutheran Refresher" for those new to the Lutheran faith (as well as those wishing a refresher), and are welcomed to the congregation on "New Member Sundays." For further information please contact the church office.
