WE now MEET AT ST. LUKE LUTHERAN CHURCH (1104 Louisville St.).



Frederick Buechner writes that worship is about singing for God, creating things for God, and basically rejoicing in God and making fools of ourselves for God "the way lovers have always made fools of themselves for the one they love."

At UBC, our services of worship are sometimes rather formal and reverent, at other times bordering on holy chaos, but usually somewhere in between. It's hard to say if our worship is "traditional," "formal," "contemporary," "emergent," or whatever labels are out there -- on any given Sunday it may be more one style than the other. Regardless, joyfulness and foolishness show up every Sunday as admittedly messy people laugh together, sing together, pray together, listen together, and give together ... with love for God and love for one another.

Our special music guests range from our "in-house" folk duo, to MSU Maroon Band instrumentalists, professional singer/songwriters, and a wide array of local musicians sharing rock, blues, gospel, and R&B tunes that challenge, comfort, encourage, and inspire. To some this may seem foolish, but it sure fosters joyful diversity!

Occasionally, we remember to record one of our guests. Below are a small sample of the diversity of our weekly special music.
