Central to the religious life of the College is the chapel program. About half of the students active in chapel are Mennonite. The other half come from a variety of faith backgrounds. While chapel services reflect the faith and values of the Mennonite tradition, the variety of backgrounds is reflected in worship services and small-group discussions.
Primary responsibility for the chapel program lies with the chaplain, although much of the planning and organizing is done by the Chapel Committee, made up of student volunteers. Learning to plan and lead worship and to speak in chapel services are important roles of the chapel program.
Chapel services are held regularly throughout the year on Wednesday afternoons and periodically on Sunday evenings. The Chapel Choir usually accompanies the Wednesday service.
Participating in Chapel can be a springboard for exploring ministerial leadership. Check out the Grebel Now article to read about Jonathan K's experience.
