At ULC, we welcome one another as Christ has welcomed us. Since our simple beginnings in an East Lansing movie theater over 75 years ago, Jesus Christ has opened his arms to welcome and embrace all who come to ULC.
Combining community and campus members, ULC is a unique Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregation. We enjoy a vigorous life of worship, learning, fellowship, and service to our local and worldwide community. We invite you to join us in our faith journey!

Statement of Intentional Welcome
In response to the call to Romans 15:7, "Welcome one another, therefore as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God," we believe that every person has worth as an individual and every person is entitled to dignity and respect. We, therefore, publicly proclaim that:
We welcome people of any race, nationality, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression into the membership of our church, and we encourage everyone to share their faith, gifts and talents in worship, service, study and leadership;
We commit to remove all barriers that exclude people from full and active participation in our church;
We will continually strive to eliminate prejudice from our thoughts and actions and discourage prejudice by others at every opportunity.
