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. 


COVID 19 has delivered us into a new day and new way of being. It is different. It is largely unscripted. We are disoriented. We are humbled. We find ourselves separated but connected.

The summer Chapel theme is OFF ROADING. It starts with the following image: you are traveling down the road, there is a turn off, looks interesting so you turn right, and soon the road gets bumpy, there are no road signs, the ruts in the road soon disappear, and before long the road disappears...and now you are off roading.

People of faith are not strangers to this experience. Off roading, while disconcerting, is an expression of faith, trust, and reliance on one’s connection to God.

Summer Chapel will look different. We will host a facebook watch party every Thursday at 11:25am.  All are welcome to watch, comment, and participate. Four common elements will greet those who attend: an opening welcome and prayer, a sacred text, a brief reflection, a closing prayer and then...

You are invited to join us on zoom for live chat and connection from 12:00-12:15pm every Thursday. 

Please join us for summer University Chapel beginning May 21.
