Worship plays an important role in creating community at Wartburg and people of all faith backgrounds are welcome. If you’d like to share your gifts in worship please let us know (link to online form). All worship services take place in the Wartburg Chapel unless otherwise indicated. There are no worship services when the College is not in session.
There are many different worship options at Wartburg but all the services include the telling of God’s story.
We believe that it is important to hear all of God’s story so we start each Fall “in the beginning” with the book of Genesis and work through much of the rest of the Bible in order.
We call this ongoing sermon series 2bcont… because God’s story (and the lives of College students) are always in flux. You can see what this looks like here (link).
Weekday Chapel: M, W, F 10:15 AM-10:35 AM
A 20-minute opportunity for worship and reflection led by Senior Students, Faculty, and Staff. There are no classes during Chapel time so it’s a great opportunity to pause and reflect in the midst of a busy day.
Sign up to give a Senior Chapel (Fridays during Fall and Winter Term)
Eucharist: Wednesday, 9:30-10:30 PM
Eucharist is a Greek word meaning “give thanks”. Every Wednesday evening you will find Wartburg students doing just that at Eucharist (or “Euchie” as they call it). Students plan and lead much of the service which includes varieties of worship music, a message, prayers, communion and a testimony. Every week is a little different but it’s always a lot of fun.
Sunday Morning Worship: Sunday, 10:30-11:30 AM
Sunday Morning worship is a liturgical celebration that often features Wartburg’s Choirs, music ensembles, and College Organist Dr. Karen Black. The Campus Pastors offer the message and preside at Holy Communion where all are welcome. Students do much of the planning for Sunday Morning Worship and fill the roles of assisting minister, readers, ushers, and communion assistants. Once a month Hope Overflow, a traveling student worship band, leads the service.
