SPU’s weekly, campuswide worship service fills the sanctuary of First Free Methodist Church with song, meditations on the Scriptures, and prayer.

On Tuesday mornings at 11:10, Chapel introduces the SPU community to a special guest — either someone from our campus or an inspiring voice from our global community.

View this quarter’s Chapel schedule

This spirit-lifting assembly is open to all students, faculty, staff, and other members of the SPU community. Each quarter we explore a particular theme related to worship, discipleship, and reconciliation, and draw from Scripture and our Christian faith from a variety of perspectives.

Seattle Pacific University is dedicated to worshipping God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In these services we remember who God is, celebrate what God has done for humanity and for each of us individually, and reflect together on what Christians are called to be and do in the world. We attend these services not only to enrich our souls, but to express our commitment to God’s work in the world and to enact our solidarity with one another, as members of the SPU community, and with the global Church.

Chapel is led by our University chaplain (Lisa Ishihara), the minister of worship (Priscilla Ozodo), the Chapel Band, and other members of the SPU community. The last Chapel of each quarter is a communion service for our community.


Chapel Band

The artists and musicians of the Chapel Band are an OUM ministry team that facilitates worship for the SPU community. The team serves during Chapel, but also provides music and art for various worship gatherings throughout the year.

Join Us Wednesday Nights for Group

This is not your standard “songs and sermon” program. Group is a holistic service, an immersion of the body, mind, and heart in the Christian story.
