Preparing to serve lunch at Community Café.

We worship each week during the spring and fall semesters in the York Room on the Second Floor of the Gray Building (Div School) to the right of the entrance to Duke Chapel. Every week, dinner is served; there is always free bread and wine and grace. acceptance and unconditional love.

Life together, service to others, and deepening relationships with one another and with God are central to our community. We welcome all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identification, or ethnicity. We believe diversity strengthens us  and provides an opportunity to learn together and from each other. We passionately work for justice in the world and are willing to engage in difficult conversations in order to usher in God’s gentle reign of justice, peace, reconciliation, and love.

Our roots lie in the Protestant Reformation when Martin Luther nailed 95 complaints against corruption in the church. We are a church that is always reforming. As people of God, created in the image of God, claimed by God, we are fed at God’s table through the body and blood of Christ broken and shed for us, and we are sent into the world to be the be the body of Christ broken on behalf of the world, and the wine of compassion poured out to bring healing God’s justice.

In the midst of a stressful, full, university experience, Duke Lutherans provides a place for you to breathe, to be who you are, and to wrestle with hard questions.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
