Chapel services are the common expression of our Christian faith as members of the campus community. They are not intended as "church," nor should they be a substitute for church. Rather, chapel is an integral component of the living and learning experience that defines Grove City College. To emphasize the importance of having a united spiritual core, chapel attendance is required of each student. Full-time students attend 16 chapel services per semester, while part-time students attend eight chapel services per semester, at minimum.
Services are held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in the beautiful, awe-inspiring Harbison Chapel, the center of religious life on campus. Tuesday services are focused on developing the mind and growing in knowledge through Bible study while Thursday services focus on the heart and living the Christian faith through ministry.
During the first six weeks of each semester, the College offers a unique chapel series in Crawford Hall that runs simultaneously during our usual worship services in Harbison Chapel. During fall semester, our first-year students participate in our Fresh Start chapel series, specifically designed to help incoming students orient to our campus community. During the spring semester, seniors worship together in Crawford Hall for the first six weeks of their final semester. These worship services focus on preparing our senior students to live out their faith after graduation.
