Welcome to chapel at United Lutheran Seminary.

Welcome Statement from the Deans of the Chapels

Our common life as United Lutheran Seminary is both discovered and expressed as we regularly gather on both campuses in our two chapels to celebrate the Word and sacraments. Our worship life is foundational to all that we are and do.

As the Lord Jesus opened his arms to all, so we invite each and every member of this seminary community into our weekly chapel life, giving thanks to God for the rich variety of talents, backgrounds and perspectives represented here. Our beautiful chapels are sacred spaces providing safe spaces where each of us will find a welcome, regardless of who we are; and where all of us together will offer radical hospitality to one another and the world.

Further, in keeping with Lutheran practice, we value ecumenical partnerships and relationships with Christians of many denominations and traditions. Together we can learn from one another and take delight in our shared life in Christ. When students, faculty, staff, and alumni/ae from traditions other than Lutheran are called upon to offer their gifts of leadership in our chapels, they are encouraged to bring elements and worship styles of their own faith traditions, thereby enhancing our common worship experience to the glory of God.
