Chapel Schedule for Fall 2023

Weekly interdenominational worship services are held on Monday nights at 7 pm in Greene Chapel. Services include traditional, contemporary, Taize,  and occasional Dinner Church (see below for more information).  Worship is planned and led by the Chaplain and Hendrix students. Following our worship services, enjoy a time of fellowship with friends just outside the chapel.  Our first service of the semester will be on August 28, 2023.  

Open table communion is held on Wednesday Mornings at 7:45 a.m. in Greene Chapel.  The first of the semester will be August 30, 2023. 


*Dinner church is an intimate, "come as you are" form of worship that takes place over a shared meal, anchored in the belief that sacred and transformative things happen when we break bread together and bear witness to the love of God in each person around the table.   It places the Communion meal and all that it represents at the center of the worship experience, and is a participatory service that includes shared prayers, serving one another the bread and cup, and a  brief message followed by table conversation on a specific topic. 

  Many faith communities have been sharing worship and fellowship over food for centuries, so in that respect dinner church is not particularly "new." It is new in terms of it being the primary form that some congregations take, rather than a more traditional liturgical worship service. One of the first dinner church communities, St. Lydia's, was established by a young Episcopal priest in2008 in Brooklyn, New York, who heard many young adults express a desire to do church differently and to combat social isolation. It has since become a movement, with dozens of dinner church communities gathering all over the United States.
