BSK Chapel & Community Prayer

Common worship & prayer is the heartbeat of a seminary community.

10am, via Zoom, see the schedule below.

Worship is a vital part of a seminary community.

BSK Chapel and Community Prayer is a time for faculty, students, staff, and friends of the seminary to cultivate habits and practices of faithful Christian worship.

Worship is a vital part of a seminary community. Worshipping together enriches and vivifies the community. Through community prayer and chapel worship, the seminary strives to be welcoming to our ecumenical community. The goal is to bring leaders and participants closer to the triune God and to one another.

Through worshipping and praying together, we seek to challenge and to charge our community to bring out God’s justice and love into the world, and also to bring hope, to encourage and strengthen each other for the journey of participating in God’s mission in the church and in the world.

A goal of theological education at BSK is formation. To that end, chapel and community prayer catechizes or forms students in the liturgical (broadly understood) foundations of Christian spirituality. Worship experiences at BSK strive to attend to the historical, racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity of liturgical and spiritual traditions not only represented in the seminary community, but also across the multiplicity of Christian traditions.
