Christian

Worship Service

All are welcome to an Ecumenical Chapel Worship Service, led by the dean and the associate dean of the chapel, that draws students, faculty, staff, and townspeople together to hear God’s word, to sing God’s praise, to lift up the University in prayer.

Sundays at 11am in the University Chapel (10am in the summer)


Chapel Deacons

Chapel Deacons participate in the leadership of Ecumenical Chapel Worship Service and work closely with the deans of the chapel to offer welcome to the diverse community. They are comprised of undergraduate students - both women and men - and span across all denominational backgrounds.
