University Ministries: Worship

gather (Tuesday morning Chapel)  

 

The gather (Chapel) service typically meets on Tuesday mornings at 11:10am in the sanctuary of First Free Methodist Church. This service provides a weekly space for all members of the SPU community (students, faculty, and staff) to worship and learn the Christian story together.

Services consist of corporate worship through song, Scripture reading, prayer, and a sermon or testimony by a special guest. This year we will be exploring scripture and the Christian faith from a variety of perspectives, drawing on the expertise of our own campus community as well as representatives from churches throughout Seattle.

Throughout the year we will devote a portion of each quarter to the study of our Lectio texts: Genesis (Autumn), Matthew (Winter), and Romans (Spring). This teaching series features speakers from within the SPU community and beyond.  In addition to teaching through these particular books of the Bible, a special emphasis will be placed on learning more about our Wesleyan and Methodist perspective on life and the Christian faith.

Please join us!

The gather ministry is a collaborative partnership between University Ministries and the Associated Students of Seattle Pacific.
