Mississippi College Christian University proclaims the virtues of faith in God, allegiance to scripture, the importance of people, a team/servant spirit, and continuous improvement. These values permeate one of MC richest and most treasured traditions: chapel. On the campus of MC Christian University, chapel serves many important functions. First and foremost, chapel is a moment in the day when we can, collectively as a university family, congregate in a time of devotion to God and/or reflection. Chapel is also a community-driven time of association, fellowship, and togetherness. By assembling daily, the students, faculty, and staff are afforded a unique opportunity to worship, fellowship, share, and strengthen relationships as well as be informed about university happenings through informative announcements and conversations. MC Christian University is built on the heritage and traditions of the Church of Christ, while recognizing students are comprised of many different faith traditions. It is through these two diverse lenses that MC seeks to provide chapel programming that provides spiritual growth opportunities for the entire community.
Chapel is held from 11:00 a.m.-11:50 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.-4:50 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Nelson Hall and First Baptist Church. Attendance is required at chapel Monday-Friday for all campus residents, and all students under the age of 25 enrolled in 12 or more hours. Part-time commuters, graduate students, and computers 25 years or older are encouraged to attend chapel but are exempt from mandatory chapel attendance.
