Daily Chapel

Our chapel program is an essential part of the educational experience at Emmaus. Each chapel seeks to enhance Christian life and character by encouraging the discipline of corporate worship and addressing issues from Christian living to current events. They also serve as a strategic time to develop campus community and become informed of campus life. Undergraduate students are required to attend chapel on a daily basis with ten absences from chapel each semester permitted.

Corporate Chapel

Corporate chapel convenes in the Glock Auditorium on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10:20 a.m. and include messages from Emmaus faculty, local pastors, alumni, and students.  This time also incorporates skits, music, and general announcements.

Floor Chapel 

In addition to our normal chapel service held in the auditorium, each Tuesday at 10:20am, students will meet by residence floors for chapel. Under the leadership of the floor RA, these meetings normally include a time of fellowship, prayer, and Bible study. Occasionally RAs will ask various members of faculty or staff to come speak during their floor Chapel; these can be great opportunities for questions and personal interaction with faculty and staff.  Floor chapel promotes community on the floor and provides a rich atmosphere for developing life-long friendships centered on the Word of God.

Growth Groups

Growth Groups are another great way to get to know fellow students, faculty, and staff. These small groups of 5-7 students of the same gender meet each Thursday at 10:20am to study, pray, and encourage each other as well as plan and participate in at least one ministry project together. Selected students, faculty, and staff typically provide the leadership for each group.
