What Biola Chapel Should You Go To?

We offer a variety of different chapels, please join us!

Sunday “Singspiration” (8 p.m., Chase Gymnasium): This Sunday evening chapel invites us into an honest conversation with God through an extended time of prayer and worship.

Monday “Spirit & Story” Chapels (9:30 a.m., Sutherland): We investigate the stories of Scripture, so that the Spirit of God will inform and shape our stories.

Tuesday Talbot Chapels (9:30 a.m., Calvary Chapel): Undergraduates are welcomed to the Talbot community to worship in music and hear the Word preached and taught by many of Biola’s own theology faculty as well as visiting lecturers.

Tuesday “Midday” Prayer (12 p.m., Calvary Chapel): This weekly opportunity provides a chance for us to join with “the great cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1) who have for centuries gathered at midday for guided prayer and reflection, returning to our identities in Christ.

Tuesday “Fives” Prayer (5 p.m., Calvary Chapel): Named simply for the time it meets, Fives calls Biolans to gather at dusk and be led in quiet prayer as we practice the spiritual rhythms of thanksgiving, confession, and scripture meditation, focusing on the psalms and songs of Scripture.

Wednesday “Spirit & Story” Chapels (9:30 a.m., Sutherland): We investigate the stories of Scripture, so that the Spirit of God will inform and shape our stories. .

Wednesday “AfterDark” Chapels (9:10 p.m., Sutherland Auditorium): This chapel is led by students, for students, and covers a broad range of teachings from God’s Word.

Thursday “Morning Prayer” (9:30 a.m., Calvary Chapel): In Morning Prayer, we praise God, intercede through Him, and listen to Him, connecting early with Him, that we might do so throughout our day.

The Biola Hour or Image of God chapels (9:30 a.m., Sutherland Auditorium): Revived from the old radio program, The Biola Hour is a live-podcast, interactive chapel designed to engage our community in Biblically grounded conversations on culturally relevant issues. Occasionally, we pause The Biola Hour to bring you community testimonies in our Image of God chapel.

Department Chapels: Offered at various times throughout the semester, academic faculty offer chapel services to engage students more deeply with God and their area of study. While geared toward specific majors, all students may attend for Spiritual Development credit. Learn how to plan a department chapel.
