Chapel

“I like chapel because it’s a chance for me to take a break in the middle of the week and focus solely on God. I love being able to be surrounded by fellow believers and worship God while I’m at school. Chapel also opens up faith conversations that may not normally be had.”

– Katie DeWitt ’20

College chapel is a vital and distinctive part of the HLGU experience. Chapel helps define who we are and what we stand for as a Baptist, church-related, evangelical institution of higher education.

Chapel Attendance

Attendance is recorded by scanning student ID cards as students enter the Parker Theatre. In the event that the card reader is not reading a students’ ID, the student may present their card to have their number written down prior to entering the theatre. This occurrence should be rare and the student should have their card replaced immediately. Students who arrive at Chapel later than 11:15 a.m. will not receive credit. Students who depart from a chapel service prior to the official conclusion will not receive credit for chapel. For more information on chapel attendance requirements, please see the HLGU Student Handbook.

A student seeing exemption from chapel for any reason may fill out a Chapel Exemption Form.
