Worship and Meditation
Service of Praise and Worship - Sundays at 9 p.m. (during the academic year)
Weekly contemporary Christian worship, grounded in the Reformed tradition, is led by the chaplain and students. The service incorporates contemporary music, prayer, Scripture and message. Faculty members, local clergy members and students are invited to offer the message. Music leadership is provided by the student-led Alma College Chapel Band. If you are interested in joining the band, contact Carol Gregg. The Lord's Supper is celebrated monthly. Prospective students and church youth groups are welcome to attend.
Mass is celebrated at St. Mary Parish on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings. The church is a short walk from campus.
Prayer and Meditation
An Interfaith Prayer and Meditation Room at the rear of the Chapel balcony and small rooms downstairs are available for prayer and study from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Key for the room is available from the Chaplain or Student Ministry Coordinators. Pillows, rugs and resources are available for use by individuals or small groups.
Area Houses of Worship
The city of Alma and the neighboring communities offer a wide range of worship opportunities. Congregations of most major denominations and faith traditions are nearby, many within walking distance of campus. A number of students choose to worship both with an area congregation Sunday morning and with their peers on Sunday night.
