Chapel Community Worship

Spring Term 2018

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11-11:30 a.m.
Where: Seeley G. Mudd Chapel

This twice-weekly worship service allows the Whitworth community to gather together in an expression of our commitment to honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity. Each worship service is led by the campus ministry staff and student leaders as we draw upon all that has been given to us: the Bible, the two millennia of church tradition, the best of contemporary music, the spirituality of written prayers, the sharing of Communion together, the power of liturgical symbols and dance, the joy of global music and the witness of the worldwide Christian community.

Tuesday services are centered on the chapel theme for the semester and typically include two to three songs of praise, prayer and a short sermon connected with the chapel theme. Every Thursday, we gather around the table to celebrate the Lord's Supper as we learn and grow in our various gifts and offer our lives to God through diverse worship styles. Services will be led by Whitworth University choirs and by sacred dancers and many other members of the Whitworth community.

"Your Kingdom Come: The Book of Revelation for Today"

Revelation is arguably the most misunderstood, misused and intimidating book of the Bible. However, what if Revelation is less about end-times formulas and codes and more about God’s ultimate purpose for the universe to renew all of creation and rule alongside his people? In Revelation, the message is clear and convicting: God is the one true God; evil is real and seeks our allegiance via the idols of power and prosperity; Jesus, the slaughtered Lamb, has conquered evil and one day will fully destroy evil; and the Spirit is calling the church to conquer along with the Lamb by following him in his faithful witness, even unto death. Join us this semester in Chapel Community Worship as God grows us as people who witness to and participate in God’s coming Kingdom.
