Fall 2019 Worship Schedule begins Aug. 18
The Chapel of the Resurrection will resume its full service schedule of eight services a week, beginning with Welcome Sunday, 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, 2019, to start the new academic year.
The first Candlelight Evening Prayer is Aug. 18 at 10 p.m. Weather permitting, it will meet outside the Chapel.
Morning Prayer is offered Monday through Friday, but begins with the first day of classes, Aug. 20. It’s just 20 minutes in length, a perfect break in the day. Each day of Morning Prayer is a different style.
The other evening service at the Chapel is Celebrate!, Wednesdays at 10 p.m., starting Aug. 21.
Among the guest preachers for Sunday mornings this fall, the Chapel will welcome the Wangerin Preaching Series as well as two alumni to the pulpit. The alumni are:
Sept. 15: Timothy Brown
Tim Brown is a pastor, a writer, and an occasional beer brewer who received his BA in Theology at Valpo in 2003, and his Masters in Education at Valpo in 2005. After almost ten years in the parish, Pr. Brown accepted a new call at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago where he works in the development office helping to keep seminary education both academically rigorous and affordable for students. He lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife Rhonda and two children Findley and Alistair.
Oct. 20: Erica Gibson-Even
Pastor Erica Gibson-Even is Pastor for Discipleship and Education at Christ Lutheran (ELCA) in Valparaiso, IN, where she has served for 8 years. After a first call in Glenwood, IL she and her husband Adam lived near Geneva, Switzerland, where their two children were born. While she was there she picked up a love for joyful global worship, and an interest in the ways that “being a stranger” can serve as a spiritual discipline. She loves music, reading, cooking, and exploring the world with her kids. Since acquiring a backyard and “her own dirt,” she is having a lot of fun learning to garden by trial and error, and anxiously awaits each Spring!
Centered in Christ, the ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection proclaims God’s love, serves
students, faculty, staff, and the wider community, and welcomes all.
