Each Sunday the University community gathers in the Charles E. Daniel Memorial Chapel for worship. The service, ecumenical in flavor and liturgical in tone, focuses on the heart, soul, and mind of worship. Students in the Exploration of Vocation and Ministry (EVM) program, the chancel choir, and faculty assist the chaplains in planning and leadership of these services, with the chaplains and guest speakers providing the sermon. University worship is at 5:00 pm, except on a few Sundays where our community expands with guests and alumni. The chaplains encourage students to develop a religious commitment that functions not only on the campus but also in the community with local congregations.
Worship with us at the Charles Ezra Daniel Memorial Chapel during the academic year as we celebrate God's good gifts and call in our lives. Attire for our services is casual, so please come as you are.

Wrestling with God:
Asking the Hard Questions of Faith
Using the depth and breadth of varying expressions of the Christian tradition, we seek to tell God’s story of creation, redemption, and fulfillment, within us and around us. Worship is incarnate, involving our bodies and spirits. Using prayer, movement, recitation, the spoken word and the richness of a complex and varied musical heritage, we will gather to praise God, receive from God, and share with God and one another.
