Special Activities


Special Worship Opportunities 2016–2017

Wondering Wandering Worship
Ever wonder what worship is like in a cathedral, at a synagogue, or in a mosque? What’s the difference between the way Presbyterians and Baptists worship, or Lutherans and an African American congregation? How about a small church or a non-denominational church? How about Catholic mass and a Taize service or a new church development and an emergent church? How about a visit to a mosque and your home place of worship? On the second and fourth weekends of each month, normally on a Sunday morning, we will leave campus and wander (make our way) to places of worship around Western PA and Eastern Ohio to learn about worship and faith traditions from leaders at the particular places of worship, spend time with the worshipping community, then debrief on the way home as we stop for lunch or a snack. Some weeks we will go on Friday or Saturday evening as that is when particular communities worship. One week we will travel to Pittsburgh to a Taize service on Wednesday evening. If interested contact the Chapel Office at (724-946-7117) and watch for travel dates and locations.
