Brookes Chapel during worship service

Loving God, Loving Others, Living Community

Chapel provides our academic community an opportunity to gather for worship and spiritual encouragement. Through music, God’s Word, & creative arts, faculty, staff, & students are challenged to love God, love others, & and to live out their faith in community. Students, staff, & faculty are encouraged to attend and participate in this worship experience.  Our worship band is led by one of our music faculty. Students, faculty, & staff are welcome to be a part of the worship through music, testimonies, & creative arts.

We meet every Wednesday at 11 .a.m in Brookes Chapel which is located on the second floor of the Minor Fine Arts Building. Different emphases are offered throughout the academic year (e.g. Campus Revival, Christian Focus Week, & Holy Week) to further inspire and challenge us to grow deeper in our faith and to make disciples of all the nations.

In Chapel, our goal is to:

Worship & Praise our Living God, Live out our faith in community, & Declare His Glory among the nations.

Psalm 96:1-3  “O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.  Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.  Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples.”

This year we will begin chapel with the theme of “Awaken, It’s Time”  Romans 13:11-12  “Besides this, you know what time it is , how it is now the moment for your to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light …”

We will hand out a 21-day prayer guide to everyone who attends chapel August 28.  This is an invitation for the Shorter community to fast and pray over the next three weeks. The true purpose of fasting is to renew our relationship with God by a turning to him. In Greek the word is metanoia, translated in our English language as repent. When Jesus began his ministry in Galilee, he said these words. “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near, repent, and believe in the Good news.”  Here at Shorter this academic year, we are praying for God’s spirit to move among us.

When transformation takes place, communities are changed.  We are in need of a spiritual awakening.
