Morning Prayer is offered at 10 a.m. for 20 minutes daily, Monday through Friday each day classes are in session. All are welcome! There is NO Morning Prayer on Oct. 11-12, 2018, because of Fall Break.
Our theme this year is “Sacred Spaces & Sacred Stories.” For this year’s Monday Morning Prayer speaker series we are inviting speakers to reflect on places and moments in their own journey where God encountered them or they grew in their understanding of God through their encounters with others. Some may also reflect on how location/place/space impacts our faith journey. Monday Morning Prayer is Core Lab approved.
About Morning Prayer
Services are led nearly every day by students from a variety of backgrounds. You may also find one of your professors taking a turn leading the singing or sharing thoughts about his or her faith life. Morning Prayer during Chapel Break is a time for students, faculty, and staff to gather together as a community of faith. Whichever days of the week you choose, there’s time to connect with others. Each day of Morning Prayer is a different style of worship — and it’s not variety for variety’s sake, but out of respect for the varied backgrounds of students and their changing needs as they grow on our campus.
Here is our regular schedule:
- Mondays – Campus speaker (Core Lab approved)
- Tuesdays – A service of uplifting music and prayer for the campus
- Wednesdays – Service of Matins, a long-standing tradition at the Chapel
- Thursdays – Prayer Around the Cross, a contemplative service
- Fridays – Our all-student Praise Band leads worship
