What We Do

What does “life together” entail?

Evening Prayer + Dinner :  Sundays in the York Room @ 5:30 pm 
Come be fed spiritually in a short service of Word + Sacrament, and physically in the fellowship dinner that follows. ALL are welcome!  To watch virtual Evening Prayer gatherings while we’re apart during COVID-19, please visit our Vimeo site.

Fellowship Lunches: Thursdays at West Union @ 12 pm
Stop by the Skillet between 12-2 to share food and fellowship with Duke Lutherans. Duke Lutherans picks up the tab every other week!

Pub Theology Durham: First Thursdays at Pour Taproom @ 7 pm
At Martin Luther’s “Table Talks,” Luther and friends would gather at a table for lively theological conversation. We do the same at Pub Theology, a monthly gathering for folks across faith tradition and across the Durham community. We talk about topics like included Faith + Borders, Faith + Gender, Faith + Food, Faith + Money, Faith + Suffering, and Faith + Imagination, among others. Check out our facebook page for upcoming events. Friends, family, and first-timers  are warmly welcome!

Bilingual Tutoring: Tuesdays at Pilgrim UCC @ 7:30 pm
Duke Lutherans doesn’t just happen on campus…it happens throughout the neighborhood! Join us for tutoring each week, where tutors are paired with a student (K-12) from Durham Public Schools. Speak Spanish? Most of the students are part of Durham’s Latino community. Don’t speak Spanish? That’s OK too, you just might pick up a bit along the way!

Community Dinners:  Third Saturdays at the Grace House @ 6 pm
Duke Lutherans and Durham community members are invited to the front porch of Grace House each month, where we share in a community meal with neighbors. Grace House serves as a community gathering place, where everyone has something to give and everyone has something to receive. We gather each month to cook, eat, share stories, and get to know neighbors from across age, religious tradition, language, and culture.

Weekly Breakfasts: Fridays at St. Joseph’s @ 7:30 am
Each Friday, Duke Lutherans gather to share breakfasts with hungry neighbors in Durham. All are welcome to the table. Let us know if you’d like to take part!

PathWays Community Garden
Duke Lutherans and neighbors in the West End community are beginning a community garden at the PathWays House on Kent St. If you’re interested in taking part or learning more, let us know!

Seminarian Support: Navigating the Lutheran ordination process? Feeling called to ministry? Duke Lutherans provides information, fellowship, and support throughout the candidacy process. Contact our Divinity School Ambassador, Christina to learn more.
