Worship at Concordia
Chapel (10:30am – 11:00am) CU Center
Daily chapel is purposefully designed to serve everyone in our CUI community. It is our hope that students, no matter what their background, can join others during the week at these chapel experiences:
- Monday Chapel
We start each week gathered in Christ, and around His Word. Monday Chapel offers us a solid, bring-your-own-Bible, start to our week. A contemporary music ensemble leads us in our singing while an in-depth, 15-20 minute teaching time, guides us in a deeper understanding of the riches of Christ.
- Tuesday Chapel
“Gathered together in Christ” are words that best describe Tuesday Chapel, and the single word “together” gives it special focus. Simple Christ-centered liturgies from the hymnal serve as the foundation for our worship, and a purposefully shorter time frame (18 to 20 minutes) gives us more time to connect over refreshments and conversation – enjoying our life, together!
- Thursday Chapel
Thursday Chapel offers time-honored worship utilizing music and specially written liturgies that express our rich heritage of faith and worship: Christ ministering to us, and our thankful response to Him. CUI’s choirs and other instrumental ensembles provide the primary source of musical leadership on Thursdays, and like the message, will always serve to point us to Christ.
- Friday Chapel
Our campus community consists of unique life stories, and yet we are all a part of the life-changing story of Christ. It is good, then, that we end our week with an experience that recognizes our unity. At Friday Chapel we stand together on the common ground of grace in Christ Jesus, learn together what it means to live in that grace, and sing together modern worship songs common in our churches today.
Shout! (9:30pm – 10:30pm), Thursdays, CU Center
Shout! is an expressive, meditative evening worship experience marked by praise singing, personal reflection, and prayer with other students. The atmosphere is low-light and low-tech, but high in participation. The music is acoustic and earthy, and the devotions are testimonial in style, led by students from the CUI community.
