Break-out chapels will resume meeting Tuesday, Jan. 28.
Men’s and women’s Chapels will meet the 28th, followed the next Tuesday by class Chapels and by departmental Chapels the next week.
These three break-out Chapels will rotate in that order until the ACU Lectureship and will resume the next week.
Break-out Chapel received “a mixed response” last semester, said Chapel coordinator Brad Carter.
Though the feedback given to the Chapel programming team last semester was mostly positive, Carter sees room for improvement.
“Obviously we need to work on communication… so people know what’s going on before they get to Moody and realize they’re in the wrong place,” Carter said.
Feedback received by the Chapel programming team on last semester’s departmental Chapels was positive and class Chapels have seen much improvement in the since last semester, Carter said.
“As a person who thrives on regularity, the schedule is somewhat disorienting,” said Nathan Gray, sophomore biochemistry major from Memphis, Tenn.
“If you go to Chapel for worship and the spiritual experience, then the rest of that stuff doesn’t matter,” said Jeremy Smith, senior psychology major from St. Louis, Mo., and Students’ Association president.
When attending break-out chapels, sign-in sheets will now require Banner ID numbers instead of Social Security numbers. After a considerable number of Chapel changes last semester, this semester should not see any other new rules or policies applied to Chapel attendance.
Chapel this semester will feature more guest worship leaders and speakers. Tony Campolo, who spoke on the first day of Chapel this semester was one of the major speakers invited this year. Lectureship week Chapel meetings will feature more “student friendly” speakers such as Dr. Steve Weathers.
