Worship Services

Chapel Services
Each Thursday at 1:00 p.m. during the academic year, the community gathers for a service of worship led by the University Chaplain with student participation. These 45-minutes services vary weekly in style, theme and content and feature many of our talented musicians with Dr. Melissa Plamann providing inspirational leadership from the organ each week. Sermons are presented by the Chaplain at many of these services, with students, faculty, and area ministers preaching on occasion. Visitors from outside the campus community are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Evensong
Each Monday night at 8:30pm during the academic year the community is also invited to gather for a service of worship led by the Director of Religious Life, students, and our Evensong Band. This contemporary style service includes praise, prayer, Scripture, sermons, and Holy Communion each week. It is an interactive worship experience with Pizza following the service. Mission opportunities take place including a toy drive, food drive, and learning about how to be involved with outreach programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Project Transformation. Additionally, there is a new offering opportunity every month! Everyone is invited.
