Open Door Reflection - Chapel Worship - Mondays & Fridays
Westminster College holds chapel every Monday and Friday at 11:40 a.m. Though attendance is not mandatory campus activities cease for this half hour so that students, faculty, administration, and staff can come to the Wallace Memorial Chapel for this service. These services typically include, songs, scripture, and a message. The messages are delivered by members of the senior class, faculty/staff, guest speakers, or Rev. Jim Mohr, College Chaplain. For a current listing of Chapel Speakers, check our Chapel and Vesper Speakers page.
