Welcome to University United Methodist Church!

We are a people seeking to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. We hope that you will be our guest in worship, at a local mission work day, in our Pre-school or After-School programs, or in one of the many small group opportunities we offer each week. We want you to experience firsthand the joy and the passion of University UMC.

We are proud of our close relationship with LSU students and faculty and with the LSU Wesley Foundation Campus Ministry on Chimes Street. We welcome all students and faculty seeking a spiritual home, whether temporary or permanent. In addition, we are a church that is the spiritual home for folks from all over the Baton Rouge metroplex area.

Most of all, we are a place of blessing and belonging, a presence of compassion and peace and a people who are Christ-like and Christ-led seeking to love God, serve people and transform lives. We invite you to participate in any of ministries of the church, or come help us start new ministries. I hope you will contact me or any of our staff if you have questions about our mission or our ministry.

We look forward to getting to know you and working together to make a difference in the world….join us!

May God’s Peace be Yours,


Rev. Dr. Jane Youtz Riecke
