Chapel and Ministry
In addition to chapel and other opportunities provided for students, there are student-led organizations that allow participants to minister to one another, develop leadership skills, discover their calling and live their faith.
- F.C.A. – Fellowship of Christian Athletes
- Alpha Omega Sorority
- Beta Chi Fraternity
- Seeking Understanding: An Interfaith Learning Community
From the Chaplain
At Hastings College, we are committed to shaping the best human beings possible. That means not only an education for our minds, but finding a place for our hearts to feel at home. Hopefully one place that you might find that welcome is in the Chaplain’s Office!
We will have several activities and worship opportunities that are open to all students:
- Weekly Worship in the Chapel — Sundays at 5:00pm. Following worship, participants are then invited to walk to dinner together at to The Eatery (the cafeteria) in HSU and continue the conversation.
- First Wednesday Worship — The first Wednesday of the month we’ll gather either at at 9:30am during the seven-week blocks, or 11:10am during the two-week blocks. These worship services will be livestreamed so the larger Hastings Community (parents, alumni, etc.) may participate.
- Occasional lunch and evening discussions about current events, pop culture and other
- pressing issues. Check the full campus calendar for details.
- Office Hours — The Chaplain’s office is open for office hours on Sundays from 2:00-5:00 p.m. and Wednesday from 9:00am to Noon. Other times are available by appointment.
Our faith journey is just that — a journey…not a destination where we must have answers and certainty.
My prayer is that in the chaplain’s office you’ll find the freedom and courage to ask questions, find
community, laugh loudly, play games and enjoy the beautiful people that gather together. Everyone is
