At the heart of our community is our chapel, located in the Campus Center. The church location is the center of the community, symbolizing the importance of spiritual life in the hearts and minds of many community members.
The 200-seat chapel is home to a congregation that includes people from a variety of faith backgrounds. The church offers full worship service with a 30-voice choir, two bell choirs, and Christian education each Sunday morning.
We are affiliated with the United Methodist Church. However, we serve a diverse religious community, and all services and activities are open to anyone who wishes to attend.
