We encourage Seminary students to find a local congregation with which to worship and become involved. You can check out a variety of local Evangelical Covenant churches, or worship in a different tradition.
During the week, there are several opportunities to participate in worship experiences on campus, which include elements of many traditions and often combine the creative, traditional, contemporary, and liturgical. Ecumenical students, faculty, and staff contribute to the rich mix, featuring hymns, worship bands, the Seminary Gospel Choir, and more.
Students play an important part in leading services, and additional student small group, Bible study, and prayer meetings further enrich our spiritual life in community.
Chapel services at North Park Theological Seminary provide a central time of worship that allows the Seminary community to be formed by the Word of God and the sacraments. Services are planned by the Chapel Committee, and are led by a variety of students, faculty, pastors, and staff. Missionaries, evangelists, pastors, or scholars may preach or lead worship.
Chapel services follow a thematic pattern of “gathering, proclaiming, and communing,” and are held at 11:00 am each Thursday of the academic year in Isaacson Chapel.
Isaacson Chapel’s prayer room is open daily for private or group prayer and meditation. It is also used for spiritual direction throughout the week.

A variety of worship styles drawn from various traditions make each service unique.
