Worship Services

Prayer Services

Each weekday morning at 9:15 a.m.

A daily service of prayer in the Brown Lounge Prayer Chapel provides an opportunity for brief readings of Scriptures, prayers for specific concerns and for the entire college community.



Praise. Worship. Community.

The Muskingum Community gathers in the Chapel every Thursday during the 11 AM Common Hour for Community Worship. This short, informal, and meaningful service uses a variety of traditions and expressions to worship God. Students, faculty, and staff participate. A listing of all the Chapel services can be found posted in Brown Chapel.

Everyone is welcome!

Chapel Choir

The Chapel Choir, "Voices of Vision," adds a joyful noise to some Thursday Morning Chapel services.

Under the direction of Cassandra McDonald, the twenty member choir provides special music during Chapel. One Chapel service each semester highlights the Choir as they "Jam for Jesus!" Students, faculty and staff participate, and everyone is welcome to join. One semester credit hour is available for those whose desire it.

The Chapel Choir has traveled to local nursing homes to sing. Their singing brings joy to a number of faces and many of the residents sing right along with them.

Cassandra McDonald is the director.

Total Praise

Total Praise is the name of our student-led Praise and Worship Service held on different Sunday and/or Monday evenings during the year. It is an awesome time of praise music, prayer, and student testimonies!

We meet about every two or three weeks, as the Holy Spirit and classes allow. Dorothy can give you the details and the schedule for the next one!

Everyone is welcome!
