Wednesday Chapel

Wednesday’s service observes the rich liturgical and musical tradition of the Lutheran church, led by our University Organist and Chapel Choir. Faculty, staff, students, the University Pastor, chaplains, local ministers, and our resident bishop are among those who offer a brief message at these services throughout the academic year.

Morning Chapel provides a “30-minute Sabbath” in the midst of our busy lives; time to pray, sing, reflect, be challenged, and have our spirits nourished and renewed.
