Worship Opportunities

James A. Wetzstein

University Pastor James A. Wetzstein celebrates Holy Communion on the final Sunday morning service of the Fall 2020 semester.

Centered in Christ, the ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection proclaims God’s love, and serves students, faculty, and staff by building an inclusive community.

Two university pastors serve the Valpo community through worship, mentoring, pastoral care, and spiritual nurture. While both pastors are Lutheran, they serve all, regardless of religious or spiritual affiliation.

Our pattern for 2021-22

There are eight times each week to worship at the Chapel when classes are in session during the regular school year. Students are involved in all aspects of worship leadership.

Our full worship schedule will resume Jan. 12, 2022, when classes resume.

Holy Communion is celebrated Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.  The service is also regularly livestreamed. Learn about upcoming Sundays.

Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m., Candlelight Evening Prayer gathers around word, song and prayer.

Celebrate! is our weekly praise band service of Holy Communion that meets on Wednesday nights at 10:00 p.m.  The service is also regularly livestreamed.

Morning Prayer is a 20-minute service every weekday. For the spring semester, it is Monday-Friday at 10 to 10:20 a.m.  Each day offers a different style of worship through which the Valpo community joins together in prayer and praise. Monday and Friday’s speakers are regularly livestreamed.
