University Chapel

Thursdays, 11:25 a.m. - 11:55 a.m.
Samuelson Chapel                                             

Preachers are selected from among the student, faculty, and staff community. The music ranges from our fabulous organ to lively contemporary sounds. After the service, enjoy fellowship and refreshments.


A striking verse in the Book of Leviticus is the command “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Lev. 19:18).  This imperative is so sweeping that both Jesus and the Rabbinical scholars regard it as one of the two “great” commandments, the other being “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Mark 12:29-31; cf. Deut. 6:4).

The University Chapel theme for 2017-2018 “Love God. Love One Another. Love” is anchored in these two passages. As you can imagine the action word that ties the theme together is ‘love’. This kind of loving is demonstrated as a response to the love God has for us - as an action of deep care for our neighbor - and is captured by a single ‘action plan’ to live day by day from the lens of love.
