Chapel Services

You are encouraged to attend any of the Chapel services which are held for undergraduates or graduate students. During the Fall and Spring semesters, undergraduate chapel services are held Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings in Chase Gym (9:30-10:20) in addition to other chapels throughout the week at various times and campus locations. Talbot School of Theology has a regular Tuesday morning service (9:30-10:20) during Fall and Spring semesters; these chapels take place in Calvary Chapel. You can view the chapel schedule here.
