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.

We will devote the first half of each quarter to the study of our Lectio texts: Psalms (Autumn), John (Winter), and Revelation (Spring). This teaching series features speakers from within the SPU faculty and staff community.  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.

During the second half of each quarter we will open up our hearts and minds to learn from local church leaders who represent a variety of diverse perspectives from within the Christian faith. These “Voices from Seattle” will help us explore what God has for us not only as part of the SPU community, but as part of the greater community, the Kingdom of God.

Please join us!
