Thank you for your applications! We’ve run interviews and will be selecting a new male sexton shortly, and thus will no longer be accepting applications. However, anyone interested in living here as part of the sexton program can, as always, add himself or herself to our callback list (listed on the sexton portion of the page). This includes those people who have already applied but that we could not take on this time.
ULC is currently looking to take on one more sexton, a male, to move in as early as mid/late-November or as late as the start of classes next quarter. Sextons are students who live at the chapel at very low-cost (utilities and internet included) and contribute 8 hrs of volunteer work per week and take part in at least several worship services or other events per quarter. We are looking for a male to share a room with another male UCLA student. Could it be you? ….
To find out all about our unique and wonderful sexton program, you can go here, where you can also find an application that can be emailed to email@example.com. If you haven’t yet been to the chapel (what are you waiting for???) you can get an idea of what the property looks like by checking out some photos here.
Note: If you apply, please also add yourself to the callback list, so that, if you are not selected, you’ll still have a chance of being asked for an application again at a later date.
ULC would like to share a volunteer opportunity especially good for UCLA students (or anyone!) already aiming to do a mission trip. Garden of Hope, in Thailand, is looking for people to teach children English (or anything you’d like, in fact, e.g. art or music, or leading a bible study, which is a pretty awesome).
You can go for two weeks, summer, a quarter, etc., and MAY be able to get UCLA credit. No special qualifications or knowledge of Thai is required. Lodging isn’t free but they can set you up with $25/night hotel that includes breakfast & dinner; a decent lunch can be bought for as little as $1.
Garden of Hope describes itself as an “organization that protects vulnerable and at-risk children and teenage women from abuse and exploitation in Southeast Asia and equips and enables them to develop maturity and responsibility, bearing fruit for the glory of God”. To learn more, visit their website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set you up with the representatives of the organization.
ULC will be hosting a Pumpkin Carving Party / Potluck on Friday, October 25th. For details and to RSVP, click on the invite below. Pumpkins can be purchased at the nearby Ralph’s for $6, or smaller ones (perhaps not fully suitable for carving) from the nearby Trader Joe’s for a bit cheaper. Hope to see you there!
ULC is excited to introduce Rev. Bob Rossow, who will be serving here at interim pastor starting this Sunday, October 20th! This will actually not be Rev. Rossow’s first time serving at ULC; he was also our interim pastor about a decade ago, and we’re so glad that he was willing to return and help us out once again. When not at ULC, Rev. Rossow can be found at Concordia University Irvine, where he serves as full-time Assistant Professor of Theology, and also as Director of the Pre-Seminary Studies Program. His Concordia faculty page, which includes a brief biography, is available here.
If you see him, please introduce yourself, and help him feel at home here!
We have quite a few copies of the LBW (Lutheran Book of Worship, i.e. the green, 1978, pew edition) that need a new home or homes, preferably an LCMS church. Contact us (email@example.com) if you are interested. Thank you!
We may have spoken too soon when we said that the sexton program is full for the 2013-2014 UCLA school year and summer. If you’re interested in the sexton program (and once you’ve read all about it on the Sexton Program page), please don’t hesitate to add yourself to the callback list. We ask that you not send applications until/unless they are requested, so that the application is the most up to date and relevant. Putting yourself on the callback list is the ONLY way to guarantee that we will be sure to get back to you if/when we are taking applications. If you have questions that the Sexton Program portion of our website (including the sexton program manual, made available there) doesn’t answer, or would like to come see the place and meet us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
