Worship - This is a daily time when we can refocus on who God is, who we are and why we are on this earth.
Community building - In chapel, we have the ability to create new relationships and strengthen the student body as we worship and fellowship together.
Affirming the Harding identity - Chapel is one of the ways that we demonstrate to both the world and ourselves that faith in God remains at the center of all we do.
Chapel services are held in Benson Auditorium.
Because of the growing enrollment, we now have two chapel services each morning:
Mon-Fri : 9 a.m.
Mon-Fri : 10 a.m.
Enrolled students will be notified when chapel seat selection is available, or they may have their seat assigned by the Office of Student Life.
