About Chapel

Worship - This is a daily time when we can refocus on who God is, who we are and why we are on this earth.

Community building - In chapel, we have the ability to create new relationships and strengthen the student body as we worship and fellowship together.

Affirming the Harding identity - Chapel is one of the ways that we demonstrate to both the world and ourselves that faith in God remains at the center of all we do.
