Spiritual Life Activities

We desire that all of our students, faculty, and staff would be able to meet with one another and with God in their time here at Providence. We recognize that spiritual formation takes place in a variety of ways and encourage you to participate fully in these activities as you discover more about your own spiritual life. To meet the diverse needs of our community and to allow greater participation of students, faculty, and staff in the spiritual life of Providence, we offer the following formative spirituality activities.

Chapel

  • Providence University College students are invited and expected to participate in chapel services throughout the week. We host three chapel services per week from 11:10 am - 12:00 am. The Dean’s Chapel on Tuesdays, is modeled after a midday prayer service, with a focus on scripture and prayer. This is led by students and faculty of Providence. Chapels on Fridays are student-led chapels using the format of small group study and prayer.
  • Seminary students are encouraged and expected to participate in daily chapel services (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:15am-11:45am; Wednesday Community Chapel (see above) which are designed to contribute to fellowship and spiritual growth. Chapel is meant to be a refreshing time of worship as well as an opportunity for students and faculty to use their spiritual gifts. Chapels feature students, faculty, and guest speakers from outside the Seminary.

Community Chapel

The Providence University College and Theological Seminary community comes together on Wednesdays for Community Chapel. These chapels feature a creative mix of music, proclamation, and prayer. Community Chapel provides an opportunity for University College and Seminary students, as well as  staff and faculty, to gather together for worship, conveying our belief that worshiping together produces a stronger community. After Community Chapel, the entire Providence Community has the opportunity to gather together for lunch reminding us that we develop our community by worshiping and fellowshipping together
