Do Good. This is what UMSO is all about. We are an organization is that passionate about serving our fellow students. You can find us passing out snacks on campus and late night pancakes on Court Street. Sharing the love of God is one of our key missions because we believe so many people need to know and feel the love of Jesus. We come together for Bible study and spiritual growth and then we go out to serve, just as God calls us.
We are a community that is inclusive to all, and we mean it. We are a safe place for discussion and growing in your faith. It is ok to come to UMSO with questions and doubts, we believe that faith is a journey and everyone is not is in the same place on the journey. So don't worry, you don't have to be a United Methodist to be a part of our gatherings and Bible studies.
At UMSO, we believe that ALL people are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God. Therefore we welcome ALL people in leadership in our organization. In our book ALL means ALL. You are welcome at UMSO! Regardless of your gender, your race, who you love, the money in your pocket or lack thereof, because we believe that God loves and values all people. Women, people of color, and LGBTQIA+ students are welcome to serve in leadership positions in our student organization.
