We sometimes say, “Chapel is where you hear the heartbeat of Harding.”
Because of the size of the student body, we now have two chapel services each morning, one at 9 a.m. and the other at 10 a.m. each morning. These services last for 35 minutes and are centered on the following three themes, which encompass what Chapel is really about:
Chapel is about worship. With all the noise, busyness, stresses and demands that we all face, it is a blessing to have this daily time when we can refocus on who God is, who we are, and why we are on this earth.
Chapel is about community building. Harding University is like a very large family. In chapel we all get to sing, celebrate and grieve together.
Chapel is about affirming the Harding identity. Chapel is one of the ways that we demonstrate, both to the world and to ourselves, that faith in God remains at the center of all we do.
Whether you attend daily chapel as a student or watch it via streaming video, we welcome you to the most special 35 minutes of our day. And if you listen closely, we believe you will hear the heartbeat of Harding University. Welcome to chapel, and experience just a glimpse of why it’s great to be at Harding.
