Benefits & Atmosphere
Every Thursday at 11:15 a.m. during most of the year, seminary staff and students gather with their families to experience God in community and celebrate His work in our lives. We worship together through song, reflect on God's Word, share testimonies, and share a soup and bun lunch together afterward.
We invite everyone to contribute $1 toward the cost of lunch each week.
The seminary chapel purpose statement:
"In seminary chapel, students, faculty and their families set aside time, space, and themselves to worship the triune God. Our gathering reflects the diversity of our educational community as we worship in ways that creatively value both our differences and our unity as followers of Jesus. As God reveals Himself, we often lament, find healing, and respond with thanksgiving and celebration."
Seminary chapel is led by a team of students, faculty, and staff. Students who show interest in chapel and demonstrate leadership abilities are invited to join this team, which meets weekly and helps address issues of seminary community spiritual formation.
