Chapel is one place where our hearts and minds encounter God. It is designed to intentionally develop the life of our community through meaningful worship, Biblical and Spirit-breathed messages, and opportunities to share our spiritual journeys in a variety of formats.
Our theme for this year is Discerning The Call. The theme is based out of Isaiah 30:21.
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'"
As a community, we will listen to biblical teachings and allow the Spirit, through Scripture to renew our minds. We want to consider what it looks like to live our lives in the context of Scripture, the context of the Spirit, and the context of the Kingdom. We will offer our bodies as living sacrifices. Our response to the mercies and Good News we find in Scripture, our response to God is a life lived in a way that glorifies Him.
2023 Spring Chapel Schedule
Every Wednesday and Friday | 10:20 - 11:20 AM
Chapel meets weekly on Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:20 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. in the gym. Based on the mission of Simpson University and the important contribution chapel makes to the students' educational and spiritual experience, full-time traditional undergraduate students (12 or more semester hours) are required to attain at least 18 Spiritual Formation Credits each semester. 50% of these required Spiritual Formation Credits must be achieved from attending a minimum of 9 Wednesday/Friday chapel services. Others can be acquired through other Spiritual Formation activities, groups, and events.
If you have questions or concerns regarding missing chapel attendances, please contact our chapel team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternative options for Spiritual Formation credit are attained through our campus community groups: Monday night "Encounter", worship nights, ALPHA, FCA events, and other pre-approved Spiritual Formation events. You can find more information on our Spiritual Formation page.

Students should then enter their full name and student ID into the app.
