Chapel Community Worship

About Chapel

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11-11:30 a.m.
Where: The Chapel and livestream

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.

We will be serving communion on Thursdays and will be featuring testimonies from various individuals on campus.

Honest Life with a Good God: Meeting God in the Old Testament Writings

The Old Testament writings include Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Ruth, Song of Songs and more. Included in our Christian Scriptures, they invite us to be fully honest with God, to bring every element of our human existence before God. We are invited to praise God, question God, be mad at God, thank God, live for God, confess to God, rest in God, ask where God is, affirm deep trust in God, be wise through God and more. This semester at Chapel, we will encounter God through these writings and explore these elements of human life with God alongside one another. Join us in this honest and thrilling journey to a more honest and fruitful life with Jesus together!
