Chapel convenes two times a week with required attendance by all full-time, traditional undergraduate students. Chapel is one place where our hearts and minds encounter God. It is designed to intentionally develop the life of our community through meaningful worship, Biblical and Spirit-breathed messages, and opportunities to share our spiritual journeys in a variety of formats.
The goal of Simpson University chapel is to assist students in their ability to:
- 1. Form a personal response to issues facing them as 21st century Christians.
- 2. Communicate the values of Simpson University as a Christ-centered learning community.
- 3. Demonstrate their commitment to Christian community and their own spiritual growth.
- 4. Engage, with sensitivity, persons who may be different from them culturally and spiritually.
- 5. Identify opportunities to serve the world and the characteristics necessary to do so.
Our theme for this year is Life in Context. The theme is based out of Romans 12:1-2.
"Brothers and sisters, in light of all I have shared with you about God's mercies, I urge you to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice to God, a sacred offering that brings Him pleasure; this is your reasonable, essential worship. Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete." - The Voice
As a community, we will listen to biblical teachings and allow the Spirit, through scripture to renew our minds. We want to consider what it looks like to live our lives in the context of Scripture, the context of the Spirit, and the context of the Kingdom. We will offer our bodies as living sacrifices. Our response to the mercies and good news we find in Scripture, our response to God is a life lived in a way that glorifies Him.

Fall 2019 Chapel Schedule
Simpson University is a Christ-centered learning community. Based on the mission of Simpson University and the important contribution chapel makes to the student’s educational and spiritual experience, full-time TUG students (12+ semester hours) are required to attend at least 66% of the Wednesday / Friday chapels during each semester. For the fall of 2019, students are required to attend 18/26 chapels. To receive credit for attending a chapel, each student must scan their ID card with the chapel scanners when chapel has ended. To monitor personal attendance records, students can visit the Simpson Moodle website at moodle.sw1314.com.
Since chapel attendance is considered a part of the educational experience at Simpson, students whose chapel attendance falls below the 66% requirement in any one semester risk receiving a chapel warning. Additional semesters without meeting the requirement may result in probation or suspension from Simpson University. Please see the Simpson University Traditional Undergraduate Handbook at sw1314.com/handbook for further explanations of the chapel code.
We understand that some students, due to extreme circumstances, may not be able to attend chapel at 10:20 AM due to class or other academic conflicts. Contact the Spiritual Formation Office for information regarding a chapel attendance alternative or an exception from the requirement. If you have questions or concerns regarding missing chapel attendances please contact Diana Rice firstname.lastname@example.org.
