In addition to our regularly scheduled chapel gatherings, the chapel program hosts special events throughout the year to encourage faculty, staff and students to further engage in cooperate worship. A few of these events are listed below.
On Gordon's annual Day of Prayer every fall—students, faculty and staff are given the chance to pray in a variety of Christian traditions and venues. Classes are canceled for the day and from the early morning until late night, different prayer-centered events are offered. Examples include: hymn-singing, morning prayer walk, resident hall prayer, catacombs, cooperate worship and creative prayer. Many of these prayer events are facilitated by student leaders and capture the global issues that are close to the heart of our community.
This year, Day of Prayer will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2023.
