United Lutheran Church exists to joyfully welcome all people to make the good news of Jesus Christ visible. We gather around story and meal on Saturday evenings at 4:30pm and Sunday mornings at 10:45am.

Throughout the week we gather as community to share lives, stories, prayers, and the activity of the Spirit at Wilson’s over coffee or Pepi’s over a beer. We serve and welcome neighbors through a myrid of ministries. We are passionate about the care and use of God’s creation.

You are welcome to be curious about what it means to be Christian, Lutheran, or join us so we can serve the neighborhood together.

THEOLOGY

At the core, Lutheran theology is a theology of love. The love of God who gives the free gift of grace to all people and the responsive love and joy of all people to a dynamic, creative God who continues to create possibilities of beloved community. Out of this love and joy, Lutherans respond in service to the neighbor through ministries, programs, friendships and advocacy.

 

HISTORY

United Lutheran Church began in June of 2017 as a uniting of St Paul’s Lutheran Church, St Andrew’s Lutheran Church, and Zion Lutheran Church. Intentional about forming a new community and listening to the Spirit’s leadings, United Lutheran Church gathers in the cooperative space of the North Pointe Ministries building. Each of these legacy congregations made the good news visible in the Racine community for generations.
