Chapel Fall 2020

The following is intended to answer questions related to how Chapel will be held during the fall 2020 semester. Please take care to read this in its entirety prior to replying with questions or concerns.

Purpose
Chapel is an opportunity to pause in the midst of your homework, classes, work and social commitments to focus on God, to remember His presence WITH you, to receive nourishment for your soul. I hope you will take advantage of the unique opportunity it is to have a specially carved out time for connecting to God and others. 

Chapel is also a requirement each semester for Graduation. It is a Pass/Fail Course currently based on your attendance. A Chapel course has been added to your Canvas page where you can access information related to available chapel offerings as well as record your participation.

Fall 2020 Attendance Requirement
In order to complete your chapel requirement for the Fall 2020 semester, you will need to "attend" a total of 28 chapel sessions virtually. (Approximately 50 chapel sessions will be offered.) Since many of these sessions can be accessed “on demand” there will be no need for chapel excuses or adjustments for commuters.

Recording Your Attendance
Each week, you will complete up to three "quizzes" indicating whether or not you participated in each of the chapel offerings for the week. Each chapel offering in which you participate and complete the quiz will earn you one point.

Once you complete 28 points, you will have met the chapel requirement to Pass for Fall 2020. You are still welcomed and encouraged to participate in chapel after that however. 

Chapel Offerings Weekly Overview:

  • Tuesday | President's Chapel
    These chapels will be live streamed via a link posted on the Chapel course in Canvas as well as on Facebook Live. You may watch in real time or watch a recording of the session.
  • Wednesday | Video & Reflection
    These chapels will be pre-recorded sessions posted to the Chapel course in Canvas under each week's module. Moody staff and professors will be sharing a 15-20 minute devotional thought from the book of Psalms. There will also be instructions posted about how to complete a related personal reflection activity. Note: The video will only be available to watch from Wednesday-Tuesday each week.
  • Thursday-Friday | Small Group Discussion
    These chapels will be held via Zoom for 40 minutes where students will be able to discuss some provided questions related to Wednesday's Video & Reflection. More information will be listed in the module for each week. 

You can complete any combination of these three options throughout each week for a possibility of 3 points per week. A total of 28 points completes your requirements, however, we welcome you to continue to participate in Chapel sessions for the nourishment of your soul throughout the semester.
