The theme for University Chapel during the 2019-2020 academic year is "Limitless." 

Frequently the voices of the world limit us.  We might find ourselves restricted, shamed, evaluated, categorized, or corralled by voices around us.  Being defined by these narrowing views causes us to think less of ourselves and, subsequently, less of God.

BUT...God does not pay heed to limiting voices.  God will not be bound by our categories, theologies, or presumptions. It is God's desire to have us know God's unlimited love and use that as our framework for engaging with the world. 

Chapel preachers will help us explore this theme as each week we examine a different biblical or religious character who broke free from the spiritual, personal, or physical bonds limiting them.  Their stories inspire us to consider:  How is God calling us to think and act outside the limits that constrain us? How does knowledge of God's limitless grace and love change us and our worldview? 

Please join us for chapel.
