All Systems Are Go!
University Lutheran Church (ULu) received final approval this week for its much-anticipated relocation to the heart of Purdue’s campus, directly across from the Purdue Engineering Mall. On Monday, February 6, 2017, the West Lafayette City Council granted the rezoning necessary for ULu to move into the former Exponent building at 460 Northwestern Avenue. The city council’s vote marks the final step in the initial approval process, clearing the way for #ULuOnTheMove to progress according to schedule.
According to Rev. Justin Herman, University Lutheran Church pastor, “the hope is that the move will greatly increase student contacts, both with our Lutheran students and with those who have never heard of Jesus at all. We appreciate the legacy at our Chauncey Hill location. It was a great chapter, and many lives were touched. With the move, we are hoping to build on that legacy by touching many more people with the Gospel of Jesus. That’s really what the mission of University Lutheran has always been about.”
As the project moves forward, please make plans now to join us in a celebration Divine Service on Commencement Sunday, May 14, 2017, as we honor the ministry at Chauncey Hill and celebrate all God has in store for ULu in years to come. This special weekend kicks off with an open house on Saturday, May 13, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by worship on Sunday at 10:30 a.m., 3:00 p.m., and 7:00 p.m., with three separate services to accommodate Purdue’s commencement program. The Sunday services will be followed by a brief reception, where people can reminisce with ULu family and friends.
