Campus Worship (Wednesdays)
Campus Worship is an intentional space for worship nurturing personal and spiritual/faith formation informed by Anabaptist and ecumenical Christian theological perspectives and EMU core values and commitments. There will also be several simultaneous convo break-out groups meeting during the campus worship block in various locations. These will take place 7 times each semester typically occurring every other week.
Campus worship is held in Martin Chapel every other Wednesday 10:10-11 a.m. To help plan and lead chapel and other campus worship services, complete the “campus worship participation form”.
