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!
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Rev. Ronald George Goerss, founder of our Lutheran Campus Ministry here at UCLA and who also dedicated and was the first pastor to serve at the newly constructed University Lutheran Chapel. He passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 4, 2013. His obituary contains many details about his life and achievements, from being recruited by the NBA to helping out ULC to becoming VP of an international firm. We thank him for all he did for us. Prayers go out to his wife, Elizabeth, and his daughter, sons, and grandchildren.
We’ve filled all the rooms and beds for next year, and are no longer taking applications. For now and until further notice, if you are interested in applying, be sure to put yourself on our callback list (see Sexton Program page). That way, if someone’s plans change and a space opens up, you’ll be contacted and invited to apply. Consider it our VIP/insider mailing list for people who want first dibs on openings! It can’t hurt to be on the list. Thank you to everyone who inquired and/or applied. We wish we had more spaces!
The University Lutheran Chapel is proud to announce that we will be hosting THREE a cappella concerts 10th week (Sun. June 2nd to Sat. June 8th). We are so thrilled that we have become a venue for these talented UCLA students. Check out the schedule!
Sunday, June 2nd, 3PM: Medleys a Cappella
(website here, facebook announcement with details here).
This one is a canned food drive, so please bring a can of soup or whatever! If you have non-canned food, ULC can take that over to the UCLA Food Closet (food pantry for students in need).
There have been some changes of plans and we are still looking for new sextons (= live here and help out at the chapel!). For loads more info, check out the previous post about this, and the sexton program page.
If you are interested in applying, please add yourself to the callback list (see sexton program page) but also SUBMIT AN APPLICATION (again, see sexton program page.) We will be taking applications until we announce otherwise. Thank you!
It’s that time again… to help us out by eating at Rubio’s! Eat at Rubio’s (the UCLA one, in Ackerman) on Wednesday, May 1st, between 2PM and close, and present this flyer, and they’ll donate 20% of the price of your meal to the University Lutheran Chapel! So grab a flyer, print it out, and head over to Rubio’s for some fish tacos (or whatever tickles your fancy)!
We are taking applications for sextons to live here for the summer 2013 and/or 2013-14 school year and/or summer 2014.
Wondering what the sexton program is? The University Lutheran Chapel sexton program is a sort of co-op situation whereby sextons (young people interested in living in a Christian co-op situation and, generally, UCLA undergraduates) live at the chapel in exchange for eight hours of volunteer work per week and a small monthly donation for utilities. Sextons also attend a specified number of events (services & bible studies, generally) per academic quarter.
And what do the sextons do? They, in large part, run the chapel! We need people to help with everything from checking email to maintaining the building, from planting flowers to planning events, and everything in between. With respect to the work expected of you, the best fit is a person who has particular skills to offer that he/she is proud of (e.g. music, artistic skills, people skills) and also is open to learning to do a variety of new tasks as needed.
To learn even more about the sexton program please visit the Sexton Program portion of our website and read the sexton manual. Make sure you are comfortable with the requirements set forth in the manual before you apply. The application is on that page as well.
DEADLINE & TIMELINE:
Final date/time to submit an application: Midnight Sunday April 28th. Interviews: Monday Apr. 29th through Sunday May 6th, in the library here at the chapel. Notification of acceptance: Via email, by Friday, May 10th. Note that phone interviews are possible for students who are, e.g., currently living abroad or out-of-state.
