Through interfaith engagement students learn important relationship skills and develop compassion for others across lines of difference. Interfaith dialog actually strengthens our identity as Christians as we work to articulate our views and beliefs in a multi-faith setting. The Student Interfaith Council meeting on Tuesdays at 6pm in the URC.
UUC’s Student Fellowship, also known as “God & People Serving:GPS@UUC,” is a group for young adults in the USC area of Los Angeles who want to grow spiritually and reach out to the community. While we are rooted in the Christian tradition, we welcome people from all different backgrounds, with different lifestyles, beliefs and passions. We also push ourselves to be open-minded in all that we do. We explore our faith through conversation, spiritual practices, community service and scriptural study. We know that it is important to be supported and find support on this journey and so we build relationships with each other through social activities, and with the neighborhood through service projects and educational experiences. For more information contact Rev.Matthias Peterson-Brandt, Minister for Campus Engagement at email@example.com.
During the summer our weekly bible study and fellowship dinner are put on hold. But we still get together for something fun every few weeks.
Serving the Community
There are so many ways to get involved in the community! Whether you’d like to tutor the Peace Kids, or preparing and serving a meal during our Late Night Cafe, or go on an alternative break trip, we can help you get connected. Service is good for your soul!
Open Table Dinner & Alternative Fellowship
We strive to find new meaning in ancient texts by using informed academic as well as experiential methods of study. We continually ask the questions “how is this relevant to my life today?” “What is God calling me to?”. Activities take place during the semester. We'll re-launch our student spiritual formation activities in the fall.
Orchard House is a faith-based living community of the United Methodist Church and for students at the University of Southern California. Orchard House residents are from differing backgrounds of both sexes, are interested in one another, are willing to share their faith traditions with one another, set goals for the house together, and learn to care about one another. Orchard House is located on Orchard Ave, just north of the USC University Park Campus.
Interfaith Spirituality & Sexuality Program
The USC Office of Religious Life’s Spirituality and Sexuality program, in partnership with the LGBT Resource Center, explores the intersection of spirituality and sexuality in order to challenge stereotypes and promote reconciliation. Although issues of spirituality and sexuality are often contentious, this program identifies creative responses and innovative solutions by hosting discussions with local Los Angeles-based faith leaders, and sponsoring performance artists, film screenings, and an annual spirituality and sexuality themed retreat.
