While Chapel at SNU will continue on, and in many ways remain the same as ever, there have been some changes this year in scheduling and what credits are available.
Chapel services will still be held Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:50 a.m. in the Herrick Auditorium. The theme for Chapel this year is “Narrow is the Road.” The theme will focus on Christ’s teachings from the Sermon on the Mount. There will be 31 chapel services this semester.
In order to pass chapel, each student is required to gain at least 27 credits. Throughout the semester, there will be 55 opportunities to earn a chapel credit. Don’t forget that if you don’t get at least 27 chapel credits, you will be fined for the number of credits you’re missing.
So, if you’re struggling to make it to Chapel every day, maybe you don’t have a class before it and you keep oversleeping, or you always have that paper due right after chapel that you haven’t finished yet, then be sure to read on to learn about the other ways you can get chapel credits this semester.
Another chance to get chapel credit is by going to Kingdom Come, a student-led worship service that takes place on Thursday nights at 9pm. Students can receive a full chapel credit for each service. There will be 12 Kingdom Come services this semester.
Solace has been moved to the last Friday of September, October, and November. It will be at 1 p.m. in the Prayer Chapel. Each one is worth a chapel credit, offering a total of three credits for the semester.
There will be two Faith and Films this semester. Faith and Film is a great opportunity to watch a movie with friends and have great discussions afterward. The two movies being shown are The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Divergent. Each Faith and Film is worth one chapel credit.
Fields of Faith will be Monday, October 12th at the Football Fields and will be worth 1 chapel credit.
Participating in a small group is another opportunity for chapel credit. There are 3 credits available for small group participation. Small group leaders will keep track of attendance.
There will also be service projects held throughout the semester. There will also be 3 credits available through participation in them.
