Believing that the worship of God is at the heart of all that we are and all that we do, the Campus Pastors office leads Chapel/Convocation services to bring the Westmont community together to love and glorify God through prayer, music and teaching from the Word of God.
Chapel/Convocation is held three times a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:30-11:20 a.m. in Murchison Gym.
It is the college’s belief that chapel has an important role in Christian liberal arts education, and, as such, is mandatory for all students.
Chapel/Convocation brings the community together for worship. The college experiences unity in its diversity. Through exposure to different styles of worship, students learn to appreciate various forms and traditions of worship and expression.
Chapel/Convocation promotes a community of disciples with a distinctive purpose and sense of identity. It is the only time the entire community gathers together on a regular basis.
Chapel is not meant to replace the church Sunday experience. Students are encouraged to go out and find a church on their own. Some churches send buses, shuttles and vans to the campus on Sunday morning to make sure that students without a car do not have an excuse not to go to church!
The Nancy Voskuyl Prayer Chapel is a place to spend time with God and to pray and meditate in a quiet spot away from noise and distractions.
