The Seminary Chapel
Because the seminary believes that Christian faith and life are strengthened by and expressed in public worship, opportunities for worship are offered every morning during the school year, on most evenings, and on festivals and special occasions. Most services are held in the chapel, part of the original campus complex but extensively renovated through private gifts during the 2004-05 school year. Designed for about 200 worshipers, the chapel has flexible seating and chancel areas that enable it to serve a variety of worship experiences. The room also holds a 25-rank Martin Ott pipe organ, dedicated in 1991, and a Yamaha grand piano. The seminary’s dean of chapel oversees the campus worship life and is assisted by a committee of seniors and a student sacristan. Students and members of the faculty preside at regular morning and evening services. Students and faculty also serve as organists, instrumentalists, cantors, and members of several chapel choirs. Many of the festivals of the Christian year are celebrated in full-length services in which faculty members are invited to preach.
We are pleased to share recordings of the daily morning chapel service, occasional festivals, and regular evening prayer services with you through this audio service.
