<p>The University Lutheran Church is the primary facility for the Stanford Episcopal and Lutheran community. The Episcopal Lutheran Campus Ministry (ELCM), comprised of Stanford undergraduate and graduate students, commonly uses this church for worship as well as non-faith based activities. More commonly known as "UniChu," the church is the hub of a community committed to social justice and hospitality to strangers. A ministry of Episcopal and Lutheran churches, the community welcomes people of all (or no) faiths.</p> <p>The organization also meets in the CIRCLE Common Room at Stanford University. The gathering includes dinner, conversation and prayer. Other activities include Bible study, current event discussion, games and movies.&nbsp;</p> <p>The church also houses the&nbsp;Amigos de Palo Alto program, a Spanish Immersion preschool housed at, but not affiliated with, the University Church. It provides a comfortable environment where parents can leave their children for daycare services. Bilingual instructors teach children English in a natural setting.</p> <p>The church also hosts The Friends Program, a therapeutic group that addresses the developing needs of young children with Asperger's Syndrome. The program aids children with social communication and helps them face the daily challenges of school.</p>
