The University Church worship services technical teams include lighting, live and recorded audio, broadcast, directing, and facility repair-upkeep.

"Reflect on why you find working as a member of our technical team meaningful...."

"Running projection is like being part of the worship team ...
no matter how simple the task, it brings fulfillment and purpose."

–Dallas Reedy, WWUC Projection Team

"Broadcast ministry is a training ground for both young and old for using technology in ministry. We become a spiritual bridge for students as they join churches after graduation."

–Chris Drake, Broadcast ministry leader



Bulletin Quicklinks



Every Sabbath, a dedicated team of over 30 men and women work to facilitate this community's connection with God through worship. Whether operating our complex lighting system, mixing sound, running cameras, or making spur-of-the-moment decisions in the program, our crews endeavor to make themselves and their contributions invisible to the congregation as they worship. This week we thank and celebrate the professionalism and diligence of these generous people, some of whom have served several hours a week for several decades!

If you are interested in contributing to a ministry that both inspires church members and blesses our community, please contact me at

-Pastor Kris Loewen




We thank two members of the WWU music department, Lyn Ritz and Karin Thompson, for sharing their talents with us. This is an especially poignant day as it is the last time Karin Thompson will present music here before she leaves to take up new teaching duties at Andrews University. We also thank Matt Heinrich for leading the praise music. Please join me in acknowledging all of our musicians and wishing Dr. Thompson well in her move to Michigan.

The string duets come from Italian baroque and early 20th century Russian composers. Pietro Nardini (1722–1793) was a student of Tartini who lived long enough to write not only in baroque but in classical style. Reinhold Glière (1875–1956) was born in Kiev to Polish–German parents.

As you prepare to worship, please silently contemplate our opening hymn. The first stanza is given here.

The God of Abram praise,
Who sits enthroned above;

Ancient of everlasting days,
And God of love;

Jehovah! Great I AM!
By earth and heaven confessed;
I bow and bless the sacred name,
Forever blest.

-Kraig Scott

The University Church budget funds many important aspects of our local ministry. Although pastors' salaries are funded by donations marked "tithe", the University Church budget is what subsidizes our amazing K-12 school programs at Walla Walla Valley Academy and Rogers Adventist School. It also makes our worship services and broadcast ministry possible. Thank you for your generous and systematic support!
