About Us

Welcome to the University Lutheran Chapel, where “You Are Home.” We live in the grace that Jesus Christ freely gives as we strive to share the light of Christ with the UCLA community. We are Christians who worship Jesus Christ and share His love with our campus and community.


Our Mission 

The mission of the University Lutheran Chapel is to be a home to discover and experience belonging in Christ.

Campus ministry at the University Lutheran Chapel (ULC) is built around creating a home away from home for UCLA students, where they are free to study, explore, and strengthen their faith in an environment where they feel supported and loved during one of the most important transitional periods in their lives.
