"The eight ministries at SPU strive to provide a holistic experience for the student body at each of their events."


group is SPU's Wednesday night worship service that meets in upper Gwinn Commons at 8:30pm. group is a holistic service that provides an opportunity for students to be immersed in the Christian story with their bodies, minds, and hearts. Our approach to liturgy looks beyond the "songs+sermon" model for worship services and allows the whole service to teach the message of our scripture selection for the week. Each service also includes a short reflection on the scripture passage from Bob Zurinsky and members of the student leadership team. Please join us!

gather is SPU’s Tuesday morning Chapel worship service that meets in the sanctuary of First Free Methodist Church at 11:10am. gather provides a weekly space for all members of the SPU community (faculty, staff, and students) to worship and learn the Christian story together. Each week we learn more about what it means to live as God’s people in our world through corporate song, prayer, the reading of scripture, and a sermon or testimony by a special guest.

This year, all of our campus worship services will be studying the same book of the Bible together each quarter. Please join us as we immerse ourselves in these life-changing texts:

Autumn: Psalms   >   Winter: John   >   Spring: Revelation
