CHAPEL SERVICES: DIVERSITY IN COMMUNITY
While GC doesn't require chapel attendance, we do encourage our students to attend, in part by allowing our services to qualify as Nexus events, part of our co-curricular enrichment program. The John L. Hill Chapel hosts six or seven services each semester, typically on Tuesday morning at 11 am, a time deliberately chosen since no classes are scheduled then. These Christian worship services feature diverse worship and preaching styles, and are led by students, musicians, and preachers from a variety of different denominational and non-denominational streams of Christianity. We hope our students will get to experience how beautifully diverse the body of Christ is through these Chapel services.
Collegiate Ministries: Serving Our Students, Reaching the World
At Georgetown College, we have several different collegiate ministries, most of which are student-led, creating many opportunities for new members of our community to get involved. Our Office of Faith and Service coordinates, resources, and/or supports each of them in a variety of ways. Some of our offerings include a campus chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (F.C.A.); Awaken Love, a prayer and worship ministry; a Newman Center, which is deeply connected to our local Catholic parish; Campus Outreach; and many others. Through these ministries and other means, we also strive to provide local opportunities for our students to serve out in the Georgetown community. The Office of Faith and Service also hosts mission trips and student retreats, Spring Break service opportunities, and occasionally adventure travel, including mountaineering and white-water rafting trips.
