When school is in session, join us for these services:
Sunday morning worship during the academic year is at 10 a.m. each Sunday when school is in session. The chapel also offers Candlelight Evening Prayer at 10 p.m. Pastor Charlene Cox is the primary preacher for Candlelight.
Morning Prayer is the most frequent service, offered daily for 20 minutes, Monday through Friday, at 10 a.m. when classes are in session and during Finals Week. It’s a different style each day of the week, with worship led and planned by students.
If contemporary praise band music is your favorite way to worship, then Celebrate! may be your favorite service the Chapel offers, Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
