Here We Walk

Get some exercise as we walk (or run/swim/bike) together with the goal of 1000 miles in 5 weeks. Each day you’ll receive an update as we explore the places of Martin Luther’s life. Including fun facts, devotional thoughts, and questions to ponder along the way, this walk is something you can safely do at your own convenience while also interacting in our private Facebook group. Sign up today!


Virtual Nativity Walk

Join Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in their Virtual Nativity Walk again this Holiday season. Produced in 2020, but reposted again for your enjoyment, we encourage you to once again bring the warmth of Christ’s birth into your living room–or any room–and come together to enjoy the beauty of the Champaign-Urbana Lutheran Community’s unique collection of nativities.

Pet Blessing – 1 pm, Sunday October 6

Bring your pet to church! The love we give to a pet, and receive from a pet, can draw us more deeply into the larger circle of life, into the wonder of our common relationship to our Creator. St. Francis of Assisi’s feast day is October 4th, so join us in celebrating his love for all god’s Creatures October 6 by bringing your cat, dog, horse, hamster, or any other pet you own for a special blessing. If your pet does not play well with others, please use a carrier, leash, or bring a picture of your pet! All are welcome!
