A Place of Worship and Fellowship

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday in the McDonald Moody auditorium, campus family and friends make time for chapel, a time to celebrate relationships. Some chapel times will focus primarily on our relationship with God, while others will focus primarily on community with each other. Many chapel experiences will combine elements of both.

Examples of our focus on community include announcements of general campus events, special chapel programs that address the needs of today's college students, or spotlights on unique opportunities to serve. However, singing followed by prayer, reading of God's word, and a spoken message is our most common format. Because of our Church of Christ heritage, singing is without instrumental accompaniment, following the practice of the early church. While some of our students are newcomers to this worship experience, many students come to admire its beauty and simplicity.

Captions for What is Chapel Video. Chapel is a time whenever all of LCU comes together and we just spend 20 or so minutes just doing what else to use really about and it's about worshiping God through song through prayer there's usually a speaker someone who gives us a message and it's just an awesome time that we can all come together people that you don't usually see you don't have classes with them you get to see them at Chapel because everybody goes to Chapel and so it's just an awesome time to really come together as a community and I think that's one of the big emphasis is here at I'll see you at the community and I think Chapel really embodies that the community of LCU is something that they don't just I mean they don't just talk about it on the webpage they really do clean it the community here is amazing from the students to the faculty to specifically the professor's the people here they genuinely do care and they they want to be a part of your life even if it's just in a really small way and walking around campus knowing that everybody cares that you're there is an experience that I honestly cannot put into words
