Each Wednesday, students, faculty & staff gather for Chapel and Community Supper.

CHAPEL | 4:30pm

Grebels chapel progam exists to nurture and support students in their faith journey while at university. There is one weekly chapel service and many informal opportunities to connect. While chapel services reflect the faith and values of the Mennonite tradition, a wide variety of faith backgrounds are welcome in our gatherings.

The Chaplain, Jessie Reesor Rempel, leads a student Chapel Team in planning the weekly service. The Chapel Choir usually accompanies the Wednesday service in Fall and Winter. This service is open to all. If you would like to be on the Chapel team, contact Jessie!


Community supper is a one-hour weekly dinner on Wednesdays that is central to community life at Grebel. It is a time for residents, associates, faculty, and staff to gather for delicious food, announcements about upcoming events, and a short program that varies from week to week. Students are expected to put this time into their calendar and attend each week. If you have a schedule conflict, email
