Religious Life Community

The Simpson College Religious Life Community (RLC) is just that, a community. We are a completely student-led group that strives to meet the spiritual needs of every student on campus. RLC is a community where anyone can come to grow in the never-ending journey of faith and spirituality to discover what God is calling us to do in our lives. As this journey is not meant to be done alone, we invite all to join us in this loving and welcoming community.
