Westminster College holds chapel every Monday 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.
Wednesdays from 11:40 AM to 12:10 PM is set aside as a time for reflection, meditation and personal prayer in the Wallace Memorial Chapel. There is also scheduled Daily Quiet Time for prayer and meditation from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM.
Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM Westminster students and members of the community gather for an hour long non-denominational worship service. These services include prayers, contemporary and traditional songs, music by one of the college choirs (Concert, Men's, Women's, Chamber Ensemble, Gospel, Handbells) and a message by Rev. Jim Mohr, College Chaplain or invited guests. Holy Communion is served once a month in Vespers. The weekly schedule of speakers can be found by going to the Chapel and Vesper Speakers.
